My first Century

Well I finished my first Century. I still can't believe that I did it. I really wanted to chicken out and do just 62 but I met a nice friend (about 18 miles in) that really encouraged me to do it. It started out as a great ride. We were averaging 18 mph for the first 70 miles, when the conditions were perfect we were riding at a 22 mph pace witch is crazy fast for me. The last 30 miles were tuff though. My rear end hurt really bad and we had a head wind the entire last 30 miles. I wanted to cry during the last 10 miles because I was in so much pain. It is Sunday now and I am already forgetting how bad my backside hurt and think that I should do this again next year. I don't have many pictures. Gabe took some of me fixing my bike the night before, and i took a picture of my jersey (from the Little Red Riding Hood race) that I wore with my number on it. Also I thought the event logo was cute so I took a picture of it as well.

First Day of School

Gabe had his first day of school last week. He was so brave, he looks so grown up in these pictures. I asked him what he did and he said that they played on the playground and had a snack and the teacher talked too much. He was so happy because he met a new friend on the bus that live down the road from us.

This is for my Sister in Law Maylyn

Here is a few pictures of the inside of my house as requested. This bottom picture are actually the same room and the same color of paint. It is just different lighting. I am still going to do some painting in the kitchen but haven't decided exactly what to do.

We are alive

Well when I was laid off of my job I also lost my phone and I was unable to easily add photos and posts to my blog. I also did not know where my camera was when I was living with my mom for the past 2 months.

So we have found a cute farm house in Shelley Idaho to call home.

This is the street view from my house.

The best part is we are only 8 minutes from the new part of Idaho Falls, and about 2 minutes from Shelley. Hopefully we will stay here for a long time. I am sick of moving. Gabe starts kindergarten Aug 20th. I am so glad that we are settled before school starts.

This is sister Kristin (left) Me, sister Janel, and sister in law Tami when we went to the zoo earlier this summer.

Gabe took this cute picture of Lacey at the zoo.
