A Sunday Bike Ride

This past weekend, the 4 of us took a bike ride. I really didn't have time for it because I had quite a few sewing projects that I needed to finish. You see, I was hopping on a plane early Monday morning to go to Phoenix for the entire week to meet my new team. Since I used to live there, I was planning to see some friends and I had gifts to deliver.

But - my husband convinced me (with guilt) to take a break from all the sewing and enjoy the Fall colors before they are gone. I'm glad I did.. 

Here we are taking a little break... we rode 8 miles. 


The pictures don't even begin to show how pretty it was. 


The air was cold crisp.. and clean.. and the sky was so blue.
 

This is a bridge that goes over the St Louis River... 


It was early in the morning. But I wish it had been closer to noon so Sun would have higher in the sky and made this a much better picture. 






Is this a cute picture?! My boys look so happy. Makes you think that they were actually getting along doesn't it? Pictures are deceiving - what you don't know is that they argued almost the entire way over who would be in front of the pack.

"I'm first!"

"Na Ah.. it's my turn to be first!"

"You always get to be first!"

"WHAT? - being born first wasn't enough for you?!!"

"MOM.. he's riding to close to my back wheel!!!!"

"MOM?"... "MOM"....

"DAD.. Mom's ignoring us!!"


And on that note.. I'll "Leave" you with this beautiful picture...


P.S. I'm still in Phoenix - so I'll be sharing more pictures of all the things that I made and carried in my suitcase. Stay tuned!

Pick me, I would love to take that bike ride. The northern hemisphere changes of season are so much more stunning than ours. Sandra
