Keri, Karla and I biked to Cooper today. A total of 15.5 miles. It was the first time I tackled that distance this year or last. I think it was the first for a long time for Keri too. And it was the first time ever for Karla and that distance and on her birthday too! It had been on her bucket list for a while. I always enjoy a first-time rider of a distance finding out it is very doable and not at all daunting. 15 miles sounds like a lot to someone who has never done it. We had a good day for it. Overcast and cooler than it has been for over a week. When we first started out I spotted a fawn in the schoolyard and stopped to take its picture. We know that seeing a fawn by itself is not unusual as mom will leave her babe somewhere and it will stay there till she returns.
The first one is a close-up and the second is to give perspective on where it was.
To back up a bit, yesterday was Butch's last doctor appointment for his hand and all is well. Then we made it a Costco day and Karla and Devon went with us. I had not been there for quite a while so it was a high dollar catch-up day. Karla and Devon were getting a kick out of Butch because he would wander off and then come back with stuff for the cart, like popcorn, then a pair of shoes, then a pair of jeans. Butch likes Costco too.
I do have to share a fun story. Devon and his friend Ezra have been making youtube video's and he lets me see them. In his last one, his friend Ezra says,"He's out faster than a fat kid at a dodgeball game!" For some reason that tickled my funnybone.
I saw this video and this little girl really impresses me! Enjoy!
