Here is what happened in July...
Every weekend we rode between a 20 to 40 mile bike trip. Exploring the local trails and bike friendly roads. Occasionally Rafiki enjoyed doggy camp at Lifetime Pet where everybody loves him!
We helped a co-worker, Dale, move to a new home much closer to Garmin. Afterwards we explored some local neighborhoods and made our way to Jimmy John's.
Discovered Ben and Jerry's on a trip to REI to test out a NuVinci for a possible trike; we rode the Tomahawk Bike Trail approx 15 miles one way. Katie pulled Rafiki home from REI and when we climbed the largest hill on the trail, a lady had to stop and ask John how he made it up the hill on his trike. Katie was nearly passed out on the bench and we both laughed at this lady's comment.
Our Olympus camera fell off the counter and chipped a corner. Allowing us the opportunity to learn what it feels like to be on consumer end of customer repair. All of our photos this month were taken with our new phone.
Katie rode to Gardner to meet with Linda and Virgil from Untied Methodist Church at Celebration park because Linda was doing the Relay for Life and was hoping to see John and Katie. Katie really enjoyed her time spent with Linda and Virgil. She walked roughly two and half miles with Linda before completing the 20 mile round trip home for the night.
John turned 28 years old on July 11th. Katie made a chocolate chocolate chip cake with chocolate icing. It was very chocolaty and delicious. Thank you everyone who sent John cards. He appreciated your thoughts.
We went camping on a beautiful cool week. Katie went on her own to The Clinton State Park a few nights before John was able to come meet her for a long fun weekend. Katie got to experience taking her Ridley off onto some mountain bike trails and loved it.
Katie got a Purple Catrike Pocket from Utah Trikes. It has a CVT rear wheel known as a NuVinci, which John just had to try. Awesome! Katie has named her trike Mercedes. As you can tell from her knees in a few pictures the trike came a little to late.
We hung out with Mark and Elizabeth, our neighbors, a couple of times. One of our adventures with them was to see a local band known as Teacher'z Pet in Missouri. They taught us about a local pizza place known as Minsky's. We are now addicted and have tried all of their pizzas!
Katie started a job working for our friend, Lauren, at her law office in Olathe. It is a nice gig because it is three days a week for two hours at a time. It is even close enough that Katie did not complain about having to push her Ridley, Prince, home due to a flat tire. :-)
