My Birthday Adventures & More....

Hello & Happy Saturday/Sunday!

A very late update this evening as I wrap up my busy but fun day!
Today (Saturday) was my 50th birthday. My hubby & I went out for a 16 mile bike ride this afternoon! It was fun except I got a bit of sun/wind burn on my face from the hefty winds we had from Tropical Storm Hermine. I didn't have any sunscreen on as I figured we would only do our usual 6-8 mile ride but since the weather was gorgeous.....we went way farther than we ever have before. We were 3 miles from the Maryland line today! What an accomplishment! 
I have to say that riding south your definitely riding uphill which those last 3-4 miles were no easy feat! My knees are reminding me now how tough it was but coming back...smooth sailing!! 

Here are some pictures...

My hot rod taking a break heading south...

Pit stop in Glen Rock, PA. 
Busy little town along the Rail Trail. 
Lots of different style eating places that smelled SO good!

Mile Marker 4....what a killer! It doesn't look it but your going uphill.

Last Mile Marker on this trip took us to Railroad, PA. 
3 miles left to the Maryland Line which did not happen today but hopefully sometime this Fall.
I had a really nice birthday as my hubby & 2 kids spoiled me with nice gifts. Even my doggies (Gigi & Bailee) gave me lots of moochies! Those are the best! It was a wonderful day!

So enough about my birthday adventure!

I managed to get some time in to create before and after our bike ride.
Here is what I created today!

Now these are gorgeous in pink, don't ya think?
