What a fun weekend! Saturday was one of those days where we were really overbooked and had to be several places at once. My cousin Rachel was a model in a fashion show, and she took to the runway at 6:00 pm. Rachel was definitely the "Belle of the Ball!" 6:00 p.m. was also the time we were supposed to be at my grandmother's surprise 75th birthday party! We managed to go to both by going to the show for only 30 minutes, and then heading over to the Catfish Hole for dinner with my dad's family. Sunday, we celebrated my Aunt Cathy and Uncle Tim's 24th Anniversary with a luncheon hosted by my Granny on my mom's side. We then took a 3 hour motorcycle ride to Kingston, St. Paul, and then back home. It was chilly! : ) But we snuggled, and cuddled, and enjoyed a few hours away from the hustle and bustle of life in the countryside!

Rachel had many wardrobe changes, but we could only stay for the first one.

My beautiful, sweet friend!
Happy Birthday, Grandma!
There were about 50 people there to celebrate her 75th birthday!

Saturday night, we did some shopping, and I was so excited to find this vintage 80's shirt at Target! It says, "Frankie says Relax!" I am a huge fan of 80's music, and Frankie Goes to Hollywood is in my top five favorite bands of all time! It will make a great motorcycle shirt!
Well, after David found out my shirt was for "riding" purposes, he couldn't resit going out for a spin (three hour spin, mind you.) We started off by going to my granny's house to celebrate Cathy and Tim's anniversary.
Getting the bike packed and ready.
It was such a beautiful day at our house!

Happy Anniversary Cathy and Tim!
And then we took off! We try to avoid riding alone, but today, everyone was busy, so we decided to ride solo. It was a great time for David and I to reconnect- being miles away from home all dressed in leather can definitely spruce up the ol' love life! : )
We stopped on the Pig Trail to take a break and realized we had been gone almost three hours, so we decided to head back home. After all, I have bus duty at 7:30 a.m. and I need my beauty rest in order to return to school as an average 5th grade school teacher. : ) I hope everyone had a great weekend as well!
