Well, if the last few weekends were quiet ones at home, this weekend surely made up for it.
Friday night started out with dinner at Moe’s (Welcome to Moe’s!) and then some shoe shopping for me. We had a rainy picnic at work on Thursday and my favorite Rocket Dog gray silk flats were finally ruined. I was so very sad to see the exact ones were no longer available but I thought these black and white stripes were pretty cute.
And I had a coupon and needed one more pair. I’m really up for some tennis shoes but honestly, I can’t seem to make myself rock the neon shoes I’m seeing everywhere. So I went with these:
I didn’t think I’d ever get Sperry’s but I love the blue goes great with the blue jeans I’m always wearing. They are super easy to put on and super comfortable.
Saturday was our big day at Scott’s first mountain bike race. They did a 6 HOUR bike race. He duo’d with another guy he rides with so they took turns doing a 9 mile loop through the Greenway. Both of them got in 3 laps totaling 27 miles. Can you believe a group of guys also did the TWELVE hour race?
Above is Scott before his first lap and below is him taking off for his last lap. Unfortunately we couldn’t see any of the trail. One guy did sustain a concussion and got some pretty nasty bruises. Scott has taken some pretty bad spills in past weeks on their Sunday rides but fortunately he stayed injury free.
All the guys at Tailwind did great. One of them even finished 3rd overall!
Scott was exhausted afterwards. We spent the evening at home so he could recover. He had a blast though and I’m sure he’ll be talking about it for a long time.
Sunday we went to church, had lunch and then went off to a local farm to get a pumpkin. The girls had a blast with all the activities. Their favorite was this water pump game where you put a rubber ducky in the trough and pushed enough water to make it land in the far tub.
They also loved seeing the farm equipment.
Picking out our pumpkin.
And we just generally had fun getting out for the afternoon somewhere new.
This evening has been pretty quiet. We stayed in for dinner and took it easy. Thankfully even though the weekend was pretty busy, we’ve gotten plenty of sleep and I’m ready to start a new week!
