Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

Motorcycle day trip

The day is gorgeous.  The weather is perfect.  So, off we go on our first family motorcycle day trip.  8/08/08

As twins, the boys have many, many things in common.  I did wonder if Andrew would ever pick up a love for bikes.  Chris started riding shortly after he turned 16.  Andrew didn’t really have any interest in it.  Well, it was only a matter of time. 

Chris’ bike is finally up and running.  Since Chris hadn’t felt good the night before, we did stop after the first 20 minutes to see how things were going. 

Chris did make it there and back.  We did wonder for awhile if we were going to have to go home and bring back the car.  Chris’ side was really hurting when we reached our destination.   The vibration was not helping, but after some tylenol, prayer, and lunch he was able to get back on the bike and ride home. 

I love the new bike.  This was our first long trip.   Funny, I didn’t feel the need to stop every 20 -30 minutes to take a stretch break 🙂

Here are a few pictures.  As you can see the weather was grand.  No dark, dreary clouds today! 


                                         Sunny, warm and absolutely beautiful.

Here we are overlooking the Mississippi River.  It was a picture perfect day. 

Since Andrew had to be back for work and I had a baby shower to go to, we only did a day trip.  Maybe next year we will do the overnight trip.

til next time

  1. Got your own little biker gang there. I like the pic of the 3 guys on their bikes.

  2. Glad you enjoyed your trip. I didn’t realize you’d even been on one. You did pick a beautiful day to go. Great pics! Hope Chris’ side is doing better. Hard to believe summer is winding down and it won’t be long before your boys will be back in school again.

  4. tj – this is one biker gang I’m proud to be a part of 🙂

    Lisa – It was a great day, very few days that we all are home at the same time so had to take advantage of that. It will be the one and only for this year as Chris is going back soon. 😦

    Curt, thanks for being a super driver!!

  5. […] there are 4 birds in this picture.  There were lots more, but the others were a bit camera shy.  Click here for other pics from that adventure.  I love how the birds are just hanging out enjoying the […]
