Biker girls

Last Wednesday we sent my husband back home. To reality. And his job. And to take care of my mom's hermit cat. And then on Thursday we made heaven a true sorority house when my friend Michelle and her daughters Shannon and Diana joined us.

We've been having a grand time going to the beach, pool, out for ice cream. And then we had the genius plan of renting bikes for the girls.

There is a bike path that runs the length of the island, so we can send them out...and have a few minutes of peace and quiet.

Buh-bye! Ahhh...heaven. Still.

Looks like fun. Strange that today, I dusted off my bike and took a spin around the neighborhood! It was so much easier when I was a kid! hahaha Where is yours? hehehe Were they tired when they finished? Lord knows I was.

Heather said...

Oh, how much FUN!! It looks like everyone is having a blast!

Joye--Uh, the grownups stayed inside. And took pictures from the balcony. And they got all nice and sweaty and jumped in the pool. Between the beach, pool, and bike riding, they are all going to sleep by 9 each night!

Heather--We are having the greatest time. And even today in our rains...it's so much fun to watch the wind whip everything into a frenzy. We are amused seeing all our floats go flying in the pool area. And the beach umbrella ending up next door.

Great photos! Looks like everyone had fun.

Can I just say... I'm greatly amused by the far-away vantage of your photographs. No attempt to keep up, to go along, to join in.... just photos taken as the girls ride AWAY. big huge smirk....

Kat said...

Susan--I have more of them in the distance. Yep...the away was the best part! (Can we say too much togetherness?!)

Okay it's official. I'm swearing off your blog until you come home. These posts make me so homesick for our house in South Carolina. I really miss that place.

since you have sent the kids out on the bikes, I figure you now have time to do this

Lauren Horsley said...

Wow - I'm dreaming of the day when I can send my kids out for a bike ride... Everyone says "the toddler years go by so fast!" but I seem to be wading through diapers at a snails pace.

Rhea said...

What a great idea to wear them out even more!! Love it! And give the women-folk plenty of time to gossip. hehe

They all have on matching shirts I see. Interesting.

A vacation without the husband? That's my kind of vacation...

Angie said...

Great pics! Looks like y'all are having so much fun. I'm super jealous as I sit here floundering in the "to do" list from you know where. :-) Keep enjoying Heaven!
