Yeah that's me sitting down, geared up and ready to head out! I have mismatching pants (blue) to the rest of my gear (red) which pains me cos for pics and scrapbooking I'd like to match, ah well. The old red pants kinda got a hole burned in them from the exhaust on our last outing (a LONG time ago!).
Yeah lots of bikes huh? Even little William had his own bike! So cute, with training wheels and everything, hehehe. Bob took some video footage on his camera of me tazzing around on the dry lake bed, so much fun! Will get that uploaded at some point for ya! Not much to see really, just like the pic below but moving. The place is SO HUGE, it's awesome! Still more sandy than I'd like on the trails but the lake beds makes up for it.
We did agree that the best part by far was being able to stay in the RV during the 'downtime'. Just being able to go to proper bathrooms (nightmare at some places, nothing more than a hole in the floor covered by a shack!), and grab a beer and put your feet up for a while. Definitely makes riding more relaxing.
Monday of course was Labor day here in the US, a national holiday, so we stayed home and did the traditional thing: BBQ! Bobs latest thing is mini bagels and so he made some sliders with some natural burger mix. We BBQ roasted some potatoes and had a little cook out on the patio, yummy!
Tuesday was our Wedding Anniversary, thanks for all the gratz messages on facebook etc. 11 years! Time flies! Anyway we left the house around lunch and headed down to Disneyland :) Finally got to go on the Toy Story Midway ride at the California park. It's awesome, loved it! Definitely recommend it! Much better than the Buzz Lightyear ride in Disneyland. Here is a self portrait of us queueing to get on the ride :)
Below is a pic of a bronze statue of Minnie Mouse and some guy I can't remember. It wasn't Walt Disney, I'm sure Bob will remind me later! On the wall are handprint plaques of famous people, like Manns chinese theatre, only vertical!
Pretty much other than some meals out (ok a LOT of meals out) and shopping, that was about it. I didn't do ANY crafting *shock* I know! In fact aside from two occassions I pretty much stayed off my computer!!! Can you beleive that? I updated facebook from my iphone and pretty much took some downtime from online. Oh I even took a break from fitness! I worked out twice (aside from dirtbiking and walking everywhere). Of course back to it today and I feel like my legs are going to drop off! lol!
