Our Anniversary Ride

On Aug 24th Jason and I celebrated 8 years of marriage and 15 years of togetherness. That's a pretty long time I'd say!

In honor of our special day, he decided to take me out for a tandem bike ride (22 miles one way!!) to the beach. It was really fun! My butt hurt sooooo bad, but it was really cool to be able to talk to each other the whole way without having to crane our necks or shout like you normally do when trying to talk while riding. Also, he took me on a paved trail so there were no signals and no traffic so you could really just relax in the pace of the bike and enjoy the ride.

Starting out in Yorba Linda

Ain't that a cool trail?

Once we got to Newport, we stopped for lunch at the Crab Shack

On the way home my poor booty was soooo sore. I have no idea why. I've ridden a bike before of course, and I've gotten some soreness but nothing even close to this. I almost had to tell Jason that we needed to have my dad pick us up I just couldn't pedal anymore. So Jason told me to lift my feet and he started pedaling us both on the trail. He did that the WHOLE WAY HOME! He pedaled his wife's 140lb butt back home 22 miles. Can you believe that? Pretty amazing. Many people chided me along the way by saying "Hey! That's not fair!" or "You owe him dinner!" and we just laughed. I did appreciate him though for being so fit that he could do it!

Marrying him was the best decision I've ever made.
