And then there's this one, I just want to kiss her!!!
And then there is this precious one that is my profile pic on facebook, but I can't get enough of it!
Anyway, I've been really excited for/impatient about the weather getting nice because of the new bike/bike gear we're getting! All of the Palmers are getting bikes so that we can get out and have fun and exercise all at the same time!! It's been quite the process trying to decide which bike to get and which trailer to get to lug our kids around in. It seems that each time one of us goes out and looks at a bike, it's better than the last one we were all excited about. And it keeps on going! But finally, I chose one today. I'm pretty pumped!!!! It rides really nicely!! Not that I'm a bike expert by any means, but I think I made a pretty good choice! I'm a little nervous about it. I haven't ridden a bike since I was a LOT younger...to give you an idea, the last bike I rode had pedal brakes. You know, when you turn your pedals to the reverse and that was how you braked. I've never actually ridden a bike that had handle brakes. So it was pretty long ago!!! I'm also nervous, because the proper fit of a bike doesn't allow me to touch the ground very well while sitting on the seat. So I have to master the coordination of braking and sliding forward off my seat to properly dismount my bike, all the while trying to maintain a vertical position. So many new things!!! But I'm really excited to have a new, fun way to work out!! And to spend time with my family. Immediate and extended!! Oh yeah, this is the bike that I finally went with. The Specialized Ariel Sport. It's pretty. :)
Tomorrow night Jaclyn starts swimming lessons with Claire! I'm so excited!! I tried her bathing suit on her today and I couldn't get over how cute she looked in it!! I LOVE having a girl!! I'm not sure if these lessons will be easier or harder than they were with Jacey. She can't fight me as much as Jacey can, but she also can't understand me as much as he can. We'll see!
Other than that I can't think of anything else that would be of any interest to anybody. I just bought a new spring coat. I'm pretty excited about that. :) Got some new summer clothes. Haven't had any of those for a few years. Last summer I had just had Jaclyn and wasn't interested in shopping. The year before that I was pregnant with Jaclyn and the year before that I was pregnant with Jacey. So it's been a long time coming and I just can't wait for it to warm up so I can actually wear what I bought. And ride my bike. I'm just grateful that I stay home with my kids and so if it snows out, I don't have to leave if I don't want to! :) Well I could also attribute that to the fact that I can't leave anyway as I don't have a vehicle. Anyway, now I'm just blabbering. :) Sorry to have bored you all!!!
