From cold to Warm Weather all in one post.....

“It was a little cold but
live 2 ride / ride 2 live”

That was the e-mail that I got from my dad this morning that accompanied the pictures above. Sometimes he just makes me smile and laugh.
First a little cold………I think when you are wearing (reference the fist picture) a Russian fur hat it is more than a little cold.

Again, it makes me laugh often when I see my dad all geared up in his Harley gear getting on his motorcycle. I am not laughing at him mind you, but at the fact that the man who has been my father for the last 30 years has (I wanted to say changed, but I don't think it really has been in a change in the person that he is) transformed into the Harley owner who in his own words “ live 2 ride / ride 2 live”. I am glad that my dad has found a hobby (hmm maybe hobby isn't the right word, I don't think you go out in the cold cold weather for a hobby), something he enjoys so much that it is worth getting out in that cold weather to do. Apparently from the looks of picture 4 and 5 he isn't the only crazy Harley owner in our area!! Love you my biker Daddy!!

Now to the warmer weather....yesterday afternoon was one of the most beautiful afternoons we have had in a LONG time. It was almost 70 outside, the sun was shining, the wind that we have been having the last few days had calmed down. So after I picked up the kids and got home we all went out into the backyard and I let them run around and play. They had a great time. We stayed out there for an hour (it was dinner time after that). The had a blast. they ran around and played with each other and the dogs. I tried to get some pictures, but it is hard when they are running in separate directions the whole time.

One last thing for today, I wanted to tell Nichole and Michael to have a great time being back in Texas! Soak up some of the warm weather and sun. Good to have you back on this side of the "pond". =)

Haha, Your dad makes me laugh too!
Did he shave his head? Did I know this? I probably did but forgot.

You're kids are so precious. I so wish we had more time here to make a trip up there. I miss you and your parents so much :(

I love the warm weather. So far today here it is in the mid 60's and it feels like summer!! I love it! :)Thanks for the welcome home too!
