Our Day Off

Labor Day was so much fun! We were planning on going to Park City for Swiss Days but when we woke up the weather was awful. It was POURING rain, hailing, windy and freezing. We decided to go to breakfast at Cafe Normandie. We met up with Dustin, Carly, Matt and Brooke.

After breakfast we all split up to do our own thing. Josh and I went to run some errands. We found a great deal on a new road bike for me. We couldn't pass it up so I am a new owner of a Marin road bike! 2009 triathlon here I come! We met back up with all of our friends later in the day to race go carts. It was really fun. Josh and all the boys LOVED it. He had a hard time driving normally on the way home. He wanted to spin out on all the corners and speed off. I had a hard time with the go carts. This sounds stupid but I couldn't reach the pedals enough to make the car actually go. They had to put 3 cushions behind me, 1 under me, and give me pedal extenders. It was a fun activity to do on a crappy weather day.



After racing everyone came back to our house for dinner. We had butternut squash soup, home made French bread, spicy pork tenderloin, and a cranberry salad.

Joe thought it would be funny to put Carly's wig on. I don't think blond is his color.

While the men watched a football game we enjoyed girl talk.

Here I am ready for bed, on my new bike. I can't wait to kick trash on it.

YAY! So fun! I was telling your mom & chris how bad I want to do a tri- but I am a HORRID swimmer! I have to work on that...I was trying to find a relay one, so I could do the running part & maybe the biking...or maybe I should just go learn to swim better! You look hot on the bike, go you!

Yes! I am sooooo excited to have a girl to ride bikes with. It is such a good form of exercise. Can't wait until spring!

that was a very fun day, but blonde is not joes color, in fact its more of a scary greasy uncle color.
