We had a very uneventful weekend~didn't have any plans but it still was a nice and relaxing 3 day weekend. Saturday started out like any other Saturday. We dropped Baby Girl off at dance and we were supposed to go jogging but hubby decided to buy me a bicycle. He already has one, so he's been dying to get me one so we can go riding together. So, we went to Walmart and I picked one out.
Then we came back home to pick up the bike rack & hubby's bike then headed down to the waterfront to ride. I must say that I was a bit terrified to get back on, although I didn't tell hubby yet. We parked, and he got my bike off the rack first and I told him I was going to ride around the parking lot to get some practice. It's been 24 years since I've been on a bike so I was definitely rusty. I started to pedal and every time I tried to put my other leg up on the pedal, I felt like I was going to fall....OMG!! Will I be able to do this. I circled around a few more times and then hubby was ready to go - so I followed. I was still a bit shaky and when I got close to people I was worse - the first time. I finally started to feel comfortable and just tried to pass people as far away from them as I could, passing too close still scared me. I also had to keep both hands on the bike - I tried to check something on my phone that was in its holder in the center of the handle bars, but I just couldn't let go, LOL. So we went as far as we could go and then turned around to head back to the car. Once we got back, I felt good - tired but I felt good! It wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, it was all in my head!
We headed back home to drop off the bike and pick up baby girl. Then, our son had baseball practice and we wanted to go to Liberty State Park to see if we saw any military ships on the Hudson. They were docked around NYC due to Fleet Week, and I really wanted to get some pictures of them. My son had no interest, so while he went to practice, we went to the park.
We didn't see any ships but I still took some pictures:
