Bicycling Adventures

In an attempt to exercise more I have been riding my bike (or Kevin's or Jamie's) everywhere including:

-- to work
-- to school (although I nearly die going up the hill everyday)
-- to the DMV to register my car (how ironic)
-- to the Post Office to mail a book we sold on Amazon
-- to get groceries (not very many)
-- to Utah Lake via the Provo River Trail
-- to DI to get decor for our apartment

(this isn't my bike, but I thought all the bikes lined up looked cool when I was at the DMV, Kevins' bike is just behind the blue one)

It's been quite fun and hopefully I'll be in much better shape by the end of the summer. I just went to DI and that was quite an adventure. Not thinking about the ride home I just brought my purse (no backpack like when we got groceries). For only $4.50 I got a few cute vases to go on some shelves we got at a yard sale (total cost of decorating: $14.40, not bad).

Well, let me tell you, riding home with a couple pounds of ceramics on one side of your handlebars is a little bit difficult. I was kind of nervous about them breaking but then the extra weight on that side made the bike tip anytime I went over a bump which was a little scary. But in the end, I figured it out and made it home to end up with beautiful wall decor! I need opinions though about how everything looks. I don't really love it but I'm not sure what do do. Any ideas or suggestions?

Graduation Class of '09

Brianna graduated on Friday this week at the Marriott Center. Grandma and Bill came down for the event and after graduation and the barbeque we played cards for several hours which was great.
