Yes, summer because it is way too HOT!!!!! I know some of you may enjoy over 90 degree weather, but I do not. I prefer 70s, maybe 80s, with little humidity. Somehow we missed all of those days this year – went straight from rain, rain, rain to heat, heat, heat. Yeah, I know – I should just move back to Colorado where the weather is near perfect :) For those in Colorado, know that I am jealous!
Saturday, Jeremy went on Fairfield’s Revenge Bicycle Classic arranged by his friend Mike (but Jeremy is the co-organizer apparently, too). There were about 30-40 people biking on the given routes. There were short loops and longer loops. Jeremy went the full 58 miles; thankfully, it was a nice day! Madison and I headed to the zoo. I only have one picture, but it is super cute. We saw these baby ducks soon after we got in the gates. Here is the shot:
She walked a lot in the zoo – through the reptile building, in the aquarium, the trail back to the gorillas. She took her first ride on the carousel, and she liked it. We also went and watched the Animals on Safari show which is so fun with all the trained dogs, cats, and other animals. By the time we got in the car, she was tired; she fell asleep in 5 minutes!
Sunday and Monday we were with family. It was good to see Jeremy’s brother who is in from Minnesota for a couple weeks. We went to Bob Evan’s to eat lunch with his Grandpa, parents, and brother. Then, we hung out in the air conditioning for the afternoon while Madison napped. For supper we dined on cold cuts, watermelon, and a strawberry pie (courtesy of Jeremy!).
We went to my parents for the night. On Saturday, I went to spend a few hours catching up with Sandy and eating baked oatmeal! Then, we went to my brother’s (Nate) house for a family bbq. It was a short, but good time to connect. Here are a few pictures of the crew:
