This is what the riders saw when they came around the corner and started to come down the hill ..mom and dad sat in front of the house with their cups of coffee and waved at all the riders. It was a very diverse group, some with big bikes, long bikes and little bikes, some with shoes, without shoes, with shirts, with prom dresses, with shorts....some young ..some old...diverse. It took them 7 hours to go by our house, there was that many riders.
We waited patiently inside of Alcatraz ....Mom didn't want us to get away from them and run out into the street....
See how big Baby Gussie has gotten.
Margaret photobombed my picture.
Mom put her baby geodes in her bird bath for the birds to perch on while they watched the riders zoom by our house. At the base of the bath is some new decorative grass she planted..it is small still.
This is part of our back yard by Alcatraz. Mom likes blue bottles.
On the last leg of the bike ride all the riders dipped the front wheel of their bike into the Mississippi River and then they partied till the sun came up. We just stayed home with Mom and Dad went to work.
Mean ole cat dietzman couldn't figure out what all the commotion was about and he hid out in the hosta bed.
Later that night we all played outside with Mom we had a great weekend. Maggie has an adventure story to tell you also later this week.
