Mollie. Redhead. 30-something stay at home mom of two. Happily back in the 716 after 9 years in the 512
The past few years I’ve been tooling around on a $90 walmart single gear beach cruiser bike. Once I started riding with Grady attached to the back of it, it was miserable. It felt like I was riding with 2 flat tires and he had a sail on the back.
I was so desperate that we picked up my 18 year old mountain bike from my parents house, and planned on rehabbing it, just so I could have multiple gears.
When we picked the kids up from the in-laws yesterday, my MIL gave me one of her old super fancy Trek hybrids. OMG. It was such a change that it actually felt like I was being propelled. I wiped out once because I forgot I had my feet in the toe clips, but other than that, it was awesome.
We just need to remember to start packing lunch though. I could have gone forever, except I got super hangry.
I’m a day late on the Father’s Day stuff, I know, but we didn’t find out until tonight that my dad won Coach of the Year for WNY. Not just for girls basketball, which is what he coaches, but for ALL high school sports in WNY. He was one of 5 coaches nominated, and he truly never thought he would get it. So he didn’t have a speech prepared. He rambled for a while, and managed to get out what he wanted to say, and at the end, threw in a “God Bless America”, and it was hysterical.He has put his heart and soul into coaching for the past 24 years; this was a long time coming. And what makes it even more special was that it was the inaugural ceremony.
How cute is he? You practically have to treat him like a toddler to get him to smile for pictures, I think my sister was actually talking to him like he was a baby. Otherwise, he just looks like Chandler. That’s his dad to his left. It’s even harder to get him to smile.
The keynote speaker was former Buffalo Bill and Football Hall of Fame nominee, Andre Reed.
After the ceremony, dad was too cool for pictures, so we took a sibling selfie.
