Hello Spring...Where Have You Been?

Monday, March 12, 2012  at 5:28 AM
Don't you just love Spring?  It might be one of my favorite times of the year when the sun decides to wake from hibernation and the cold goes back to where it came from.  I love it!  Recently, we've had some incredible weather that only makes me love life a little more.

On Saturday, Jenn, Donnie, Rachel, Maglee and I decided that it was time for a much needed visit to St. Joseph and the beaches of Lake Michigan.  The sun was out, and although it was a little cool for a bike ride, we decided that it would be a perfect day to walk the beach.  It was so pretty out there with the vacant sands and splashing waves.  I'll let the pictures give you an idea of the fun we had...
Can you tell who is Jennifer and who is Rachel?

Then, yesterday, to fully enjoy the amazing weather, we had to go for a ride.  Rachel has recently decided to do her first triathlon this summer and has started training.  She and Donnie just bought some road bikes, and we had to break them in.  So, the four of us and our friend, Jonathan, went out for a little spin.
We only did 10 miles for the newbies, but Jenn and I went back out and rode 17 more.  It was such a beautiful day, and it was nice to get a little sun on the freshly shaved legs!  I missed them over the winter.  Just so you know, Jennifer and I went to the pool TWICE last week just for fun.  It was great to get back to swimming some laps.  By the way, my Timex watch that I showed you HERE is amazing in the pool!  It works perfectly by tapping the screen for a new lap.  I highly recommend it for anyone that is searching for a new one.

Lastly, I wanted to thank you all for so many kind, thoughtful comments on my last post about our frustration with the future.  Every one of them really was encouraging and brightened my day.  Thanks for the comfort.  We still don't know where we're going, but we are meeting with the ministerial directors of our conference tonight, so hopefully we'll know something soon.  

Have a blessed week, and ENJOY THE WEATHER!!!

Nice bike jersey ;)

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to ride yesterday either. Should have worn sunscreen though - I got a bit burned!

Looks like we have a batch of April showers rolling through today a month early. Oh well, it is still 50+* so no complaints!


WOW - what a great weekend! Glad you guys got to take the bikes out for a little spin :) Oh and love the jersey you have on - I have one just like it. All the pics at the beach are amazing!

Dang man, you beat me to the shaving! I got my subscription to the Dollar Shave Club and should have my razors this week! So most likely I will be joining you here shortly.

Great job enjoying the weather! We have been so busy lately we haven't been able to get out yet :(

Love the cycling top ;)


You always take the most amazing photos. More HDR?

Way to get outside!!!


I love the photos! I am so excited for spring, and it being light out later in the day and nice weather and opening up my doors and windows.

Nice bike ride!

I'm glad you have such good friends to hang out with! Enjoy them for the next 6 weeks :D


yea for getting out! I too am ready for it. We had a gorgeous weekend also. Love those beach photos!


St. Joe's!!!! Oh how I miss thee. Well, the beaches of Lake Michigan. I think I told you that we used to go to Grand Haven every summer when my kids were little....actually, "little" ended just two years ago when we just couldn't afford it anymore. We went every year to the Coast Guard Festival. Your pictures brought back some great memories.

Glad Spring is almost here and you got to enjoy such a fantastic day with your friends!! Can't wait to hear when the moving decision is made!


It has just been gorgeous! Here's hoping this warm weather is here to stay! As to the Rachel vs. Jenn question... I'm pretty sure I can tell which one is which, but (wow!) they could be twins in that pic! :)

Those pictures are amazing!!! Isn't it great to be getting outside?? So fun to get out on the bike, no matter the distance. Love the Maglee picture!!


Love the pictures!!! :)

I am keeping my fingers crossed that things work out and that you end up close to us in the south! We FINALLY have some good news (I'm way behind on the blog post), but I know you asked. We are hoping to get a closing date tomorrow. I've been holding off the blog post until I had it! :) But... looks like we'll be moving middle of next week! YAY


Absolutely beautiful pictures! Looks like such a great time :)

This weather is a little too hot for my liking so I will be happy when the temps go down a bit next week :)

I hope you got some feedback from the ministry!!


Very energetic blog, I loved that bit. Will there be a part 2?
