I started off Friday night with Mexican food, with a side of Margarita. It had more than a shot of tequila in it. It burned the whole way down my throat. I drank it anyway. Then the hubby had to drive me home...
On Thursday of last week I got an email from the bike store saying they are going to start beginner/novice bike rides on Saturdays this summer and asked if I was interested. Ummm YEAH! I quickly RSVP'd!!! I bought 'White Lightning' last June and rode her all summer, and in the winter I rode her on the trainer. She's a beauty, and I was ready to get her back out on the road. I talked with the hubby, he was game, so we loaded up Saturday morning, met 11 other people and rode for 18 miles. Ahhhhh-mazing!!!!! I used my hydration pack the hubby got me for Mother's Day, and it worked perfectly!! It was so fun, I think I smiled the entire way. Meeting new people, chatting along the way, enjoying the mountains....it was great! So many times I wanted to pull out my phone and take pics, but that would be dangerous, that's almost like texting and driving!!!! Just take my word for it, it was beautiful!!

Now if I could only find a running group like that, I'd be set!
Saturday afternoon the boys went kayaking while I stayed at home and caught up on my shows. I don't do kayaking, but they do, so it was perfectly fine with me.
Sunday morning Oscar and I got up to run 4 miles then the boys took me out to breakfast. After breakfast we went on a hike close to Monticello (Thomas Jefferson's house). We took Oscar with us since he was overly energetic that morning. Since we had Oscar, we couldn't go to certain parts of the trail. Dogs are not allowed on the boardwalks, so we had to stick to gravel/dirt paths. Which kinda sucked. I heard the boardwalks are great, so we will have to go sometime without Oscar.

After our hike, we came home and took a 3 hour nap. It was probably the best mother's day I've had. Run, breakfast, hike, nap....yeah, it was the best...

I'm glad ours is finally warming up. Not where I'd like it, but at least the sun was shining!
