to set the mood for this post, make sure to click over and listen to bicycle race.
we don’t watch football at our house. in fact, you won’t find us watching baseball, basketball or soccer either. what?! instead, you’ll find us tuning in to the tour de france each summer, and the 2011 tour started just last week. most of you know my husband is an elite cyclist, a cycling coach and used to own a bike shop. needless to say, he’ll be glued to the television for the next few weeks. it’s a good think i enjoy it as well, as the racers and announcers remind of the time when we first started dating. we’ve watched the tour together now for 8 years, and i’m sure it will be a life long tradition. are you tuning in?

hello lovelies! well, we’re off on our big road trip and i wanted to share with you our first few days on the road! i won’t be talking about the trip everyday (don’t fret), but will try to give you a few updates a week. that way, you can see the country with us!
day 2: set up camp in new mexico. go to david’s bike race. swing on the swings at the empty playground and let toaster get dirty. really dirty. bathe toaster in the (freezing) river. build a campfire (and almost start a forest fire). make and eat dinner (pasta and soup). play a (long) game of bananagrams. go to bed.
day 3: pack up camp. drive to arizona. ponder why the plants are so angry. set up camp. go take pictures of the super neato cacti. gather firewood and build a big fire. make dinner (veggie burgers and green beans). lay under the stars. pick out the satellites and the galaxies. be in awe of the universe. go to bed.
