Bike Ride with E

Soooooo ... Ethan asked me to go for a bike ride with him this evening.  I wasn't going to at first because I'd been up since 6:50am and had been gone all day (until around 6:30-ish).  I was tired, but I thought I should go with him.  Plus he got a new bike this year and I thought it would be fun to try it out with him.  So, the first time I ride bike, at all, this year, and we decide to go around the lake trail.  Which isn't all that bad, but it's 3 miles around.  Which also isn't so bad, but right as we got to the tail it started to rain, and then rain some more, and then it rained pretty good for a while.  E and I decided to tough it out and ride in the rain, which wasn't bad (okay, I realized just now that I've said that phrase or something like it three or four times now) but the wind after the short rain shower was a killer.  It blew very hard for a while.  So hard that I almost turned back.  But we didn't, we stuck it out. :) Go us!  And I snapped a few shots with my phone (yes, with my phone) to show you all what it was like.  Thankfully it only rained for a few minutes, and although it was windy most of the time, the ride was very nice once the clouds cleared up and the sun came out.
This is a picture of the rain, the shiny things in the air are the raindrops.
 I'd taken my contacts out before the ride ... now you all must suffer my glasses look.
Country speed-bump ... or just tractor mud tracks. :)

Great phone pictures!!! Wow. They look so good. And I think that was excellent perseverance on your part to A) Agree to go on a bike ride in the first place. B) Continue the ride even though it was a THREE MILE bike ride. and C) Endure the rain and wind! Go Ana! :) I'm sure Ethan appreciated it. I loved you guys' wet clothes! :)
