|Kyle commented at church today that his one gear Schwinn bike|
gave a great workout on our 20 mile, rolling hills, bike ride.
What's the name of this bike Kyle?
It is to rain today at 2:30 so we've changed the bike ride to Sunday at 2 with plans to watch the Super Bowl at Kara's at least until half time (since it is a school night). Kara's sharing her BBQ Boston Butt, I'm making Stan's famous broccoli salad and Kara's making a dessert. I think the boys are going to try and go on a long run at 2:30 today if it's not raining.
Road bike tomorrow at 2 from Kara's, see ya'll then! -Keeli
|Fire up for Ashley King, sorry I didn't get her all the way in|
this photo, but she's sporting her NEW Dolce Specailized bike
with those red handle bars....we all just loved this bike...I'm
kinda jealous since my Dolce is gray and 5 years old now....
|Alrighty Chloe....she had Kelly Glover over for a sleep over|
and these two stayed up till Midnight chatting, I had to do
a "Get to bed girls" several times until they actually did it...
but we all made it to church on time and that's what matters!
A giant thanks goes to Neall and Becca for hosting yesterday's 20 mile bike ride! They not only provided a sitter but also LENNY'S!!! Yes, Lenny's was delivered to Wynne by employees from its Forrest City store and it was fabulous after the cold and windy bike ride. Ya'll know I hate to brag but I brought champagne to toast Neall and Becca after receiving the Cross County Chamber of Commerce's Volunteers of the Year award, and it was sooo good! Neall and Becca, immediately returned to their hometown of Wynne to open Dental and Optometry practices, respectively, right after graduating. Then taking on as chairmen of our 30 year old festival, Farmfest, for three, yes 3 years, and employing 24 plus employees combined as well as raising a family with Sol, 5 years, and Rose, almost 3 years, while chairing many committees and serving on many like the Wynne Economic Development Corporation, Cross County Chamber of Commerce, Cross County Arts Council, Midsouth Kids Triathlon and Midsouth Kids Marathon committees, church and many more things in our precious county, it seemed like the right time to bring out the "special champagne". My BFF Wendy in Chicago highly recommended the Schramsberg Mirabelle Rose Brut that we all shared and enjoyed toasting the Jackson's for a Job Well Done! That champagne was delicious!
Ok...the bike ride was easy and fun as we had two new riders, Johnny and Beverly Edwards from Searcy. They are new to Wynne and are newlyweds and gave each other road bikes as wedding gifts...now that's a good present I'd say! We all enjoyed the ride and the social time afterwards. It was fun having our toasts with Lenny's and taking jello shots. Yes, it's true, that's not a typo. We had jello shots laced with vodka. I passed mine to Jackie so I could go get Kelly for the sleep over. I heard they were delicious but we were off to Birdeye for the sleep over and birthday dinner for Harmon and Jeanie at Josie's in Waldenburg. We had a great time at the bike ride and at Josie's. If only I could figure out how to ride out there to on the way to dinner and have a bike rack on a car for the ride home from Waldenburg...hmm....it was a ton of fun. There were great karaoke singers and not so good karaoke singers but we all had tons of laughs celebrating Memaw and Grandad's birthdays.
OK....so it looks good this weekend for a bike ride. Kara's offered to host at 2:30 after she gets off work...so if the weather holds meet at her house at 2:30 for a road bike ride.
And this BBC crew is responsible for our first time trial thanks to Kyle. It's slated for Sunday, June 3 at 9 am from the Birdeye Store. Here's the link to the BBC Time Trial: http://www.racesonline.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=public.race_detail&race_id=12948
I thought it's appropriate to share a link to Kara's shoes: http://www.louisgarneau.com/in-en/products/305541/Shoe_Covers
