New Bikes

Today was such a fun filled productive day! We got an early start and went scouting around for bicycles. After numerous stops at Village cycles, Target and 2 walmarts....we settled on his and hers purple and blue Schwinns! Had a blast riding them around stores, felt like I was 9! Here is Stephen trying his out....
The original plan was to head north to Santo's bike trail just about 20 minutes from us. However, taking brand new bikes out into the wilderness for the first time after neither of us had ridden in a while didn't seem too smart! Suddenly it dawned on us that we have miles and MILES of beautiful bike trails throughout the villages practically in our own backyard. So we set out on a 10 mile bike ride starting out at Lake Sumter landing and working our way South through several villages, country clubs, and even got to see where all the new houses are being built. Good times! Of course this post wouldn't be complete without a ton of pictures of our excursion!

This is in front of one of the many tunnels for golf carts...

This is a funky bird we just had to stop and take pics of...

I want to go for another ride tomorrow morning, maybe to Spanish Springs for some Starbucks or Panera breakfast....but my butt is KILLING me...and I'm pretty sure poor Stephen is hurting too! So we'll see! Right now we just finished up a late dinner (Chicken Cacciotore, yummm) and we are watching Avatar...greatest movie EVER! I hope I make it all the way through though, I am exhausted! I think I am going to sleep like a baby tonight!!!

    Love, Mom Sko

  2. Guess sore butts are a casualty that is hard to avoid but it did sure look like a great day! Love, MomSco
