Me and the littles got to ride the train out to visit our family of Saugens in Kalispell last month, and we had a lovely adventure. Christie is a way better hostess than me -- she planned hikes, picnics, beach days, man -- we were set and had 3 days of non stop adventures :) In the middle there she somehow convinced me to do a 50 mile bike ride around Kalispell.... now for dear sweet Christie, who is an amazing athlete, 50 miles is like 1/2 to 1/3 of what she could do. For me it was like HOLY SHI* that was a long bike ride :) The first 25 weren't too bad, considering I hadn't ridden a bike since May. The last 25 (TWENTY FIVE PEOPLE) got progressively slower... and slower... as my little quadriceps got tired... But I completed it, and had a grand time doing it! So fun. Next year Christie is going to do the full 100 mile ride. I think I will just cheer this time.
We had such a fun time visiting cousins and chatting over tea and whiskey at night. I am going to have to plan another trip next year too.
And now for the photos!
