As you all probably know, my little brother has been living with us this summer while he attended the Northwest Lineman's Collage (where they teach them about electrical work on power poles and stuff) which is about 5 miles from our house. This past weekend was his graduation so my parents and my sister Vera came and visited for the weekend.
First of all though...Last week Neal asked Bauer if he would carry him upstairs, Deker decided he wanted to help. Here is how it looked:
Keagan and Aunt Vera ready for their ride.

Keagan has really outgrown his bike, but we were going to wait until Christmas to get a new one, but a neighbor of ours who has older boys called us earlier in the week and gave us this bike. Keagan took a few days to figure out how to ride it since it is bigger than he was used to, but he finally got the hang of this on Sunday. Neal got on it play with Keagan. Keagan saw him and said "Neal stop you are making my tires go flat".
I had read earlier in the week that the city of Boise was hosting a Celebratory ride and birthday celebration with Gold Medalist Kristin Armstrong (she is from Boise and won the gold medal in 2008 & 2012 in the Time Trial). Being the cyclists that a bunch of my family has become, we decided to go and participate. She lead a short 1.5 mile ride from the Boise Depot to the Idaho Capitol where the celebration was held. They had cake to celebrate her birthday and she signed posters that they gave out with a picture of her on the medal stand with her son.
Here is Kristin talking to us for a minute before we started the ride. She also talked at the celebration. One thing that she said was something to the effect of when she was on the medal stand she wanted to show her son that dreams are possible and she also wanted to show all the moms that you can have dreams and goals and it is all about having a balance. That was something that I really needed to hear.
