Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Biking through the park and mooing with ice cream.

Last Tuesday sister and I met our Aunt at one of my favorite parks. (Click on photos to see more detail.)  We brought our bikes and before lunch we rode the 8 mile trail around the big lake.  Did I mention there are hills here?

We just came up this hill!

It was a beautiful day, sunny with a little breeze to keep the flies at bay.

We also hiked a little bit in the nature area; we saw some sandhill cranes, swans, ducks, and blue herons with young ones still in the nest.

We took lots of pictures.

We had a lot of fun goofing off, enjoying the sunshine, the park, and each other…

…and we found out it’s not always easy to keep up with an 80 year old!

Friday night sister and husband and I went to the local dairy for ice cream.  It’s the best ice cream around.  I had udder butter (peanut butter and chocolate) and my sister had moocachino (coffee flavored).

We got to pet a really cute calf.

I’m convinced you can’t have exceptional ice cream without the cow scent to accompany it.  Darn that was good.

All in all a very good week.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. You sure showed your sister a good time when she visited last weekend! Hope I can walk let alone ride a bike when I am 80!

  2. Did Katie know you were out playing without her? Kudos to your aunt – I’m not sure I could do the hills part of your bike ride and I’m not 80. Yet.

  7. I think you have to get ice cream (Moomers?) after physical exertion. I’m pretty sure it’s a rule.
    And thank goodness for breezes when it comes to those awful flies!
