Birthday Bike Ride... I'm 28 years old and one day. Yesterday was pretty awesome. Saturday night we went to the annual Fair Dinner Auction. We carpooled with friends and by the time we got dropped off at the car, it was after midnight. So my birthday started with a midnight serenade by friends. Then I woke up Sunday morning to breakfast in bed! After that, Mattie decided it was time for our bike ride. It was really the only thing I wanted to do all day.

We got out our bikes and had to hit up the gas station for air. We saw a college guy there hitchhiking. He asked us for a ride and said he was heading to Vail to sky with a friend. I watched him while Matt filled up the tires and he finally got a ride. It was very intriguing to me. Anyways, off topic, here's Mattie airing up the tires and yelling at me to stop taking pictures-go figure! LOL
Then we headed to Creve Coeur Lake which is 3.7 miles around the lake. I wanted to go around 2-3 times. I had on workout capris, a long sleeve shirt, a tshirt and a sweatshirt and I was so COLD!!! My legs that were showing and my hands were BRIGHT red. I was a baby and we only did one loop. Brr!!! I do want to go back though because it was a great trail.
My Mattie and I beside the lake.
After our bike ride, we headed home to get cleaned up. On the ride home, I got a little worried because my mom hadn't called me yet. She's usually ALWAYS the first person to call me. So I broke down and called her. All was well but apparently I told her last year not to call me so early! LOL
Then we went to Big River Running where I picked out my birthday gift (a water belt and I'm super excited about it). Then to dinner at Highway 61 which I'll post about tomorrow. I got so much love on my blogs and FB, it was just a pretty great day!!! So far, so good with 28!

I'm so glad you had a great birthday. YAY!

I'm super jealous of your bike ride, though. I really need to start saving up for a bike!

Aww I miss CCL - I used to go there a lot when I lived closer. Guess I gotta settle for Grant's Trail now :) Glad you had a good bday!

Happy belated birthday and I am glad you got that bike ride in--even with the heavy sweatshirt.
