father's day foolishness!


Sunday was a fabulous day on the shore, where I celebrated Dave's Daddy Super Powers with our two monkeys and my in-laws. Dave is the best father any kid could ever wish for- he is so present with the kids and is always orchestrating something fun and special for them to do together. I am SO the boring parent in this duo! ;) So we got to do something that Dave loves, mountain biking down at Bluff Point in Groton. It is a beautiful place with a nice set of trails to ride on which can get pretty challenging! Dave organized his mountain biking pals, a pretty cool group of guys who can do some amazing tricks on their bikes and their sons for a nice afternoon ride. Oh and then me! Which is hilarious, actually. I love biking and am super competetive but I was competeing with the 7 year old in the group! Pretty hilarious! Especially when I wiped out and got a major scraped knee, although I felt pretty cool because there was blood and all. Made me seem 'less girly' in the words of one Sean Kelly! I was able to take this one picture with Sean's camera of all of the guys at the overlook. Pretty fancy!

Maybe your husband and my husband can get together sometime and jump off some big rocks on their mountain bikes!
