Mothers Day, the actual day

Sunday AM I woke without an alarm! Bonus....read the news online and took Zen for a walk.  Geared up for a Mothers Day/Birthday ride for Cathleen.  Rolling from Peets and I was ready to go early so headed out on my own and enjoyed a nice NF latte while waiting for Cathleen, Amy, Andy and John.  Really a civilized way to start the day.


We had a sensational ride on a new route for all of us.  We all seem to do the same rides all the time so I shook it up a bit and off we went.  The sun was threatening to come out so we were optimistic and headed West,   The longer we rode, the more the clouds rolled in and temperature was dropping- the only downer of the ride.  We cut it short a bit but still rode a respectable 2:45 and ended back at Peets for more coffee and birthday celebration. Amy and Any could not stay and eat...they are in the thick of Ironman training so had to log more miles and tack on a run. The rest of us...no plans and happy about that.  Johan and Sandy joined us and we had an absolutely delightful Sunday morning. Good friends, a nice ride..hard to beat that! 



After the ride we enjoyed the day, helped my dad get his iPad dialed in and then the kids came home.  They had spent the afternoon with their Grandmother (on their dad's side) at a Padre Game.   We topped of the day with flowers, cards and sushi at Love Boat Sushi!

We had a splendid time laughing and eating.....lots of food, lemon sake (yuck) and a smashing day indeed!
