Lazy, lazy, lazy

whine, whine, whine..........I had a wonderful time in Seattle and Victoria......great bicycling but don't have time to write about it's a copy from my PlayDATE newsletter with a little description of the Seattle/Victoria trip and more whining!!

Oh My!!!
Where has the time gone?? I've totally "slacked" on the newsletter the last two months!! Here's what I've been doing:
Last month our oldest daughter Paige, graduated from the University of Wisconsin Law School in Madison so the whole family went for the graduations ceremony. My husband, myself, daughter Lynly and son Evan all flew out and spent a long weekend in the Madison area. We went to the ceremony, drank beer, ate cheese, danced the polka and met my daughter's future inlaws. It was a great time. Paige's fiance, Justin's family is very nice and we were happy to meet them on their home turf.

Last week I went with my friend and bicycling partner, Robin to Seattle and Victoria, BC. We stayed with my sister, Teri in Seattle and spent one day bicycling the Burke Gilman Trail. The next day we all took the ferry to Victoria . The first day we went shopping, bought new shoes and the fixings for a hotel room picnic. The picnic is something my sister and I like to do at least one night when we're traveling. By shopping at the local grocery, wine store, cheese shop, bakery and deli we get a different view of a city than just the normal tourist shopping. The next morning rental bicycles were delivered to our hotel and we were off for an all day ride on the Galloping Goose trail. Half way into the ride we stopped at Sooke Basin where we had a wonderful lunch at a great little resturant. Our ride was approximately 50 miles. When we returned to Seattle we did a little sightseeing there and had a delicious bbq salmon dinner.

This weekend I'm going to my cousin's daughter's wedding in French Camp and then to Davis on Sunday for my daughter, Lynly's graduation from UC Davis.

In the meantime my son, Evan has been in Costa Rica and my house has been in complete uproar having the wood floors sanded and refinished and still in the process of painting.

This is why I haven't come up with a creative and informative newsletter for you....excuses, excuses..............
