First off..... it's the 4th of July, 2012..... Happy Independance Day!!! :-)
With that said, here in the Pacific Northwest, it is also known as the official end of Spring, as July 5th seems to be the unofficial start of Summer for us!!! So, let me just shout out......HOOORAY!!! Summer is finally arriving tomorrow!!! :-)
And, finally, let me say..... we won't be here for the arrival of summer this year. We will be east of the mountains, over in Leavenworth and Wenatchee, for the boys 10U state baseball tournament. Leaving today to head over and get set up at the RV park we are staying at. Tomorrow morning the official opening ceremonies for the tournament happen. And then Evan's team will play two games tomorrow. Looking forward very much to the sunshine, the heat, the baseball, the camping, the relaxing, the cycling, the just getting away for five days!!!
It has been a fun and fast paced month that has just gone by. Lots and lots and lots of rain, sprinkled with a few nice days here and there. We managed to get the pool taken down, and the deck dismantled as well. It was hard work, took more time than we thought, but it is done! No more swimming pool, no more deck....time to plant more lawn for a bigger back yard!!!
Two back to back weekend trips to Oregon, for cycling and for a graduation party. Lots of fun both weekends, with too much good food eaten.... has me feeling like I need to ride a whole lot more!!!
State baseball tournament over the next four days, return home, work a shift, then get ready to head to Seattle for STP 2012 next weekend!!! Next thing we know, it will be the middle of July already!!! :-)
Looking forward to a fast paced, fun filled, sun filled, cycling filled, family filled, God filled Summer!!! :-)
For now, time to go load the rigs, and head over to Leavenworth, WA.
