Ridin' with Roarke!

Roarke and I's new past time is bike riding! When we lived in town I would take him and Remi for a 2 or 3 mile walk every morning. When we moved I was kind of at a loss because I knew that stroller walks were probably not a possibility. I started looking for bike seats for sale online and boom! I found one for way cheap! Very dirty, but in good shape. We cleaned it up, bought R-man a new helmet, and hooked it up! Just like that we were off and taking adventures together every morning!

R-man hates his new helmet!

Ready for our maiden voyage!

You would think Roarke would smile just a little... of course not!

"Watch the road Momma!"

So far Roarke and I have loved exploring all the country roads that surround us! I love the fact that during an hour long bike ride we usually only see 1 car! We especially like stopping to look at chickens, horses, and cows! Love my little bike riding partner!

Jay County Fair

It's the season of fairs and what kind of Mom would I be if I didn't take R-man to my very own hometown fair! We ate fair food, saw the animals and rode rides! Love my times with this sweet fella!

French fries at the Lion Burger stand!

Momma loves her animals and I hope R-man does too one day!

It was all fun and games before the ride started...

We were a little unsure once it started! But we did okay :)

They say why kids are so great is because you get to see the world again through their eyes. How true this is. I love experiencing the world with Roarke! Wouldn't trade these days with him for anything!

Water Table!

Roarke's B and Ips came to stay with us a few weeks ago. With them they brought all sorts of goodies: Dan's old train set, PJ's, clothes, and a new water table! I had been thinking about different options for some water fun during the hot days of the summer. I think the water table was probably the perfect one since it gives R-man several play options and he can practice his walking while playing! We have had so much fun watching him enjoy it!

Oh my... this little boy is so fun!

Hancock County Library

I'm always looking for things to do on days that are too hot or too rainy to be outside. So one day we decided to venture out to the Hancock County Library. I love the library and always have since I was a little girl and I hope that Roarke does too as he grows up. When we got there I was shocked with how nice it was! It had beautiful sculptures and fish tanks build into the walls! There were special room designed for just the little kids, teens, and adults. I fell in love with it immediately and I look forward to going their again and again when the weather just doesn't allow us to be outside enjoying the weather. 

First we hit up Baby Story Time.

I always like going to things like this because it allows Roarke to get around other kids and experience things with different people besides just me.

Then we went to read some books in the children's section!

And spent some time making new friends!

I even had some fun building block towers for Roarke to knock down seconds later.

Once we got in the car it was only a matter of seconds before the R-man was knocked out in the back seat! Gotta love places that do that to your kids!

Running stats for the week of July 18th - July 24th... I didn't do very good on my workouts this week! Mainly because of how hot the weather was. It was pretty much too hot to do much of anything outside. I was even hesitate about having R-man out in the shade. Our air conditioner struggled to keep up trying to cool stuff down. However! I would take this weather over winter any old day! You just can't beat the summer time!
