Introducing LBB...

June 9, 2013
As you all know I recently got a new car and I named her 
BBB (Big Black Bitch) 

Well here is
 LBB (Little Black Bitch)
Yes I got a new bike. 
I got her a couple of weeks ago. 

Today was the first day I really got  her out on the road. 
What an AWESOME ride. 
I was a little freaked out about having drop-down handle bars. 
I did have the bike shop put interrupter brakes on it.
The mirror was kinda freaking me out also. 
It is on the bottom of the handle bars. 
She is so light I can pick her up with one hand. 
Hopefully that will make me go really fast. LOL
This is my new view from on my bike. 

This bike is so comfortable that I could have ridden for hours. 
I got used to all of the difference's really fast. 
I did take a break to tan. LOL 
Yes I took her in the room with me. 

I got a 20 mile ride in and then my mom and I went for a little over a 
mile walk down to the sprinkler park and back. 
Ya I had to play in the water. LOL 

What a great day. 
Love summer time.
STP here I come.

Lewis County Historical Bike Ride ....

May 11, 2013

I belong to the Chehalis-Centralia Optimist Club. 
The Optimist Clubs are dedicated to 
"Bringing Out the Best in Kids"
and do their part with community service projects.
Here is the link to their Facebook and website.

Every year the club puts on the Lewis County Historic Bike Ride. 
This year was the 31st.
I have ridden it for the past 4 years.

Denny, Wes and I rode it this year. 
This was mine and Wes's first ride of the year in preparation for the 
Seattle to Portland (200 mile) bike ride this year on July 13th and 14th.
Wes rode the STP with me last year. 
Wes, Pam and I are all riding this year. 

It is going to be a tough one this year, we haven't really trained. 
With all the training for my marathon I haven't gotten much "butt time" in. 
People have ask me what "butt time" is, 
well it is just having you butt in shape to sit/ride a bike for 9 to 10 hours in a day. 

This was Denny's longest bike ride so far. 
Denny lost his chain right at the top of a big hill we had just gone up.

We got in 42 miles. 
I was really impressed with how well Denny did. 
Towards the end of the ride he really started to cramp. 
Great job babe. 

Thanks to all my other club member's and all the volunteers that all helped
 out with this ride so I was able to ride. 
There were over 150 riders. All money went to scholarships for 8th graders 
and sponsorship for local athletic teams and events. 
Can't wait until next year. 

Great job Chehalis-Centralia Optimist Club.

My Niece Brooke's graduation...

Great job Brooke. 
We are all so proud of you. 
Love you!!
Graduation was Friday night at 7:30

Brooke was in the choir all throughout her high school years.
Her final performance of high school was to sing the national anthem.
They did a wonderful job.

When the graduates went across the stage the family members
were allowed to go down and get close up pictures of
 their loved one getting their diploma.
Jason (dad) and I went down and got some great pictures.

One of the girls that I work with Karina, her daughter Vanessa graduated also.
Great job Vanessa & Karina.

 Congrats Brooke...
Love you!!

We had her party on Saturday.
What a fun time decorating for the party.
Thanks to everyone that came and helped us celebrate.

I had a great time doing Brooke's photo boards. 

Cousin Brittney, Brooke, Grandma Helen, Dad Jason & Aunt Angela.

Brooke and Brian for several years had a running joke. 
Every time Brian would call and Brooke would answer. 
She would say who is this, and he would say's it's chicken butt. 
So he told her on graduation he would get her a chicken. And so he did. 
Thankfully it turned out to be a plastic chicken. 
Nice joke Brian. LOL

The kids threw something on the roof of the house,
Jason to the rescue.

 Great BBQ'd ribs Jason.

Grandpa, "will you buy me a squirt gun like this."

 Of course Bennett, we will get the biggest one the store has. LOL

Grandma doesn't think this is a good idea. LOL
I don't know why, she said they already have a ton of them and it's
not safe when the kids get ahold of them.
I'm picturing lots of wet people.

Cute Joel.

I guess you are never to old to get on a trampoline.
Kim teased grandma Helen was giving the kids a sex talk. LOL

Congrats Brooke
Here's her preschool graduation picture. 

Senior graduation picture.

LOVE YOU... Kisses Aunt T
