Bike On Over!

Peter and I bought bikes!!!  For me, we went with the Fuji Sunfires (different models) from our local bike shop, Indian Valley Bikeworks.  The customer service was AWESOME!!!

Peter has been wanting to commute to work (about 8 miles) and, since the roads in our county are so torn up, his short commute is quite a bit longer!  So, since a friend of ours just started commuting to her job, he's gotten really fired up about the idea.  For me, it's more that ability to trail ride with the kids in tow and to enjoy some leisurely commuting to the gym (less than 2 miles away).

Although... ultimately, if I can get my knees back into shape with regards to running, I'd love to try a triathlon!  So, I got a bike that could handle that...  We'll see... That's a distance 2 year+ goal.  (Even though this one looks so cool...)   Right now, I have to conquer the 5K, LOL!

Got rid of some baby stuff on Craigslist.  I gave away a handmedown snap-n-go double, and sold my 2 maetai carriers and our cosleeper.  It was nice to pass those things along, but at the same time, it was heartbreaking to let go of it...  To sort of admit that Bobby and Maya are no longer using them and that there, most likely, wont be another baby (anytime soon at least) to use them.  But I love passing them on and knowing that a baby will use them.  It really warms my heart.

Only a few more days until we leave for Tennessee!!!  The housesitter is in place, I've started packing, and I'm working on a list of all the stuff we will need for a long trip.  We leave Friday and won't be back until my birthday on the 7th, so it will be quite the trip with little ones!  I havent seen my mom in over six months and cannot wait!!  T-3 Days!!!  (In the Nashville area?  We'll be having a blogger lunch on Sunday, June 6th, around 1pm at Noshville's-Midtown before we start for home.  Join us!)

Please stop by a new blog, and leave a message of support in the face of miscarriage.  There are so many blogs that I follow that are facing difficult times, but it is the support of our unique network that makes things bearable.

Oh and... Quad Pictures!!!

I love that you're sharing the loved items from Bobby and Maya with so many others. I'm sure it's so very, very bittersweet.

Excited for you for your trip!!

Have a ton of fun!
