Bicycle Ride

I don't know if I've ever mentioned it before, but DH and I bought bicycles this spring so we can ride around with Phoebe. We want to get a trailer that can seat the two boys, but haven't gotten around to that yet. So for now, we've been trading off who's riding bikes with Phoebe and who's pushing the baby stroller. Part of the reason we decided to do this is that our neighborhood is limited in being able to ride a bike. You can, but it's a dead end street with a cul-de-sac at the end. If you go out of our neighborhood just a little bit, but on a busy road, you can get to lots of other neighborhoods and have a great ride. I'm not comfortable letting Phoebe do this on her own yet, but very comfortable doing it with her and a double-stroller.

DH came up with a great idea for last night, since we are child-free for the moment and trying to make the most of it. We rode our bikes to our friends' house in the next town. It took us 20 minutes to get there and 3 hills (!!!), we jumped in their pool and hung out with our friends for a little while and then rode our bikes home. My legs were jello by the time we got home, but today they feel great! It was so much fun.

Then we ate cheese nachos and caught up on the latest episode of TrueBlood. The more seasons they have the more I love the actors they picked for the main characters, but the more I'm having issues with how the story line is deviating from the books. I love the books so much and kind of buy into their storyline. Like last night I was getting frustrated with them kind of making it sound like werewolves are created from bites. In the book they can be, but they won't be full werewolves. The only way to be a full-blooded werewolf is genetic. Your parents have to be and it's only the first born that ends up with the ability. I guess I need to try to treat it as a separate story altogether, but it's really really hard.

Oh my gosh I totally agree about True Blood. I read the books halfway through the Marianne storyline on the show so I was all confused for awhile of what happened where (book or show). And I have to say the books made me LOVE Eric even more. lol
So I now treat them like 2 totally seperate stories so I don't go crazy. And I am totally thrilled that the Marianne story line on the show is over. It was getting old real fast for me.

I'm totally impressed with the biking in this HEAT! 90+.... I've never seen True Blood, but I have read the books. I do love the Anita Blake Vampire Killer book series. I wish they would shart a show based on her books.

We got bike trailers for our boys and they love riding in them! With 3 boys, we needed two, so both of us have to cart at least one boy. :) We bought the first one used, and then found a similar one at Wal-Mart.
Have fun with the bikes!
