What a weekend. Brinna's birthday was June 9th but had planned a party with a couple of friends for this past weekend at the in-laws cabin.
Here's a recap:
Friday was spent going the kid's play performances, packing, and getting sometime in at the North Loop.
Saturday was the day to head to the cabin. We were a bit hesitant as the weather wasn't looking too great. The cabin is literally two small rooms. Not enough for 5 kids and 4 adults. I was up at 5 to ride north but wasn't sure if we were even going yet. We went and I didn't start pedaling till 10:30.
The ride was fast! A good tail wind most of the way there. It was humid too...I was drenched and disgusting when I arrived. I took the most direct route, clocking in at 60 miles.
Despite being overcast the wind was down and the temp was high. The kids had a great time in the water, tubing, rope swinging, etc.
Saturday night was rough. Haper kept us up till 3:30. Not sure what the deal was. The kids in the tent wanted Jen or I to sleep with them. One of us was tyring to get Harper down. Both Jen and I got something like 4 hours of sleep in.
This made Sunday kind of all blur together. It did rain a bit but nothing to keep the kids from the water and more tubing.
I wanted to go home bad but hung in there and survived. I toyed with biking home but stayed for Brinna.
Wanted to get up this morning and ride but knew I needed to catch up on sleep...so here I am.
Tomorrow Jen and I are going out to celebrate our anniversary (14 years!)...so no Tuesday Night Ride.
I'll get out sometime!
