I went to get gas yesturday and I went to the cheapest place around and WOW! How nasty. If the results from the online calorie buring calculator did not elevate my view of cylcling enough, the price of gas did. We will be planning our activities this summer with the price of gas in mind. In the past, I have taken the boys for a drive in the evening, when they are not calming down enough. Liam will go to sleep in the trailer and if I take them on on the bike, I burn calories and they can calm down.
I made my last big purchase for the bike yesturday. A car rack, so I can take it on the road. I had quite the power shopping trip yesturday. I wanted to get most of my pre-camping shopping taken care of and I had some things to buy for an end of the year teacher's gift at Christian's school. I was able to pick up several fun, yet cheap things for the boys when we go camping. I bought Christian a jump rope, bought new bubble wants (note to self, pack duct tape for when they break the wands). They now have one of those ball sets with the velcroed catchers. I also bought some fresh color/activity books for them. Since I know I will be alone with them this year, I want to make sure they have plenty to do.
