unfortunately working in the restaurant, or most service jobs, means you work on weekends.
jason made good use of the weather and loaded up the bikes and took kellen and casey to the eastern trail to get casey's "bike legs" back. she had just learned to ride a bike without training wheels at the end of last summer so she was rusty, but mostly rusty in her mind, fearing that she couldn't do it all over again. she was wrong. we knew that, but convincing her is not always so easy. she was up and riding in no time jason said. her confidence grew so quickly he couldn't keep up with her on foot. i was sorry to miss that, but happy that she had such a good time and gained back that confidence she had forgotten about all winter.
when i did get home from work, we cooked burgers, corn on the cob and split a beer. the perfect summery meal in my opinion. then we packed up a blanket and headed to the beach hoping it wouldn't be too windy. it wasn't. the sunset was getting that great summer gold color, we stripped off our shoes, cuffed our jeans and stuck our feet in the water. OMG cold! like really really painfully cold. there was only one soul in the water, a brave surfer fully outfitted in a wetsuit.
it was the perfect day/night to welcome in the summer month.
we love you.
