Blog Neglect and X Games!

So, it's been over a week since I have had a chance to post and blog surf. I feel like I have been missing in action and actually suffering withdrawals from not being able to stalk my favorite people! But today I have some time to sit here and as "Red" puts it, caress my fingers over my keyboard! Ahhh...it feels good!

Anyway, to fill in the gaps, yesterday hubby and I went to the X Games! It seems like when we knew that the kids were going to be leaving last summer that we talked about how we would be so free to do things and lately we have been sitting home every weekend. So I surprised DH and bought tickets and we went. We had a blast! The best part was just being together, but the day was beautiful, we saw some way cool motocross freestyle jump tricks...it's amazing that these guys can get their motorcycle so high in the air and do flips and actually let go of their bikes upside down and are able to land smoothly! It was incredible!



In the picture on the left, there is actually a motorcycle rider in the air and upside down but you have to look really hard to see him. Look for two little tires underneath the bleacher roof kinda to the left.

We also saw some skating events but were more interested in the motorcycles. Today when DH was teaching Sunday School, he mentioned where he was yesterday and his kids were SO jealous!! They thought he was so cool....!!
