With Spring time, comes being outside as much as possible!
Such was the case this week with Stevie & Samuel. So much so, that they kept forgetting to close the back door as they ran in and out. Of course, I kept reminding them that it was STILL COLD outside and to stop letting the heat out.
The other thing that happened with the door constantly being open is......
we got a squirrel in the house!!!
Yeah. Not good. John & Samuel finally caught it....
About 20 years ago, John saw this used tandem bicycle at the bike shop. He quietly saved up and one day, bought it home for me!!
First time we got on it, I panicked because I couldn't see and had no control. Once I gave up the control, it sure was fun. About 8 years ago, when Hurricane Floyd hit, it was buried in the flood. I have been wanting to clean it up, paint it, and get it back on the road again. But you know, its one of those things that you do in your spare time. Which I have none of.
Josiah found it in the back of the garage, and it was like a kid in the candy shop. He and Chloe are getting it ready for real use again!! They went out and bought new tires, got black paint( the color I have always wanted) and started to clean it up.
They got it functioning, and couldn't wait to try it out.
They rode it all over town. They said people stopped and stared. They just waved back. Kids were amazed when they rode by, never seeing such a contraption. They waved to them too.
Spring is here, and I am so thankful.
And I pray you all have a blessed, beautiful, meaningful Resurrection Sunday. :)
