Bike Riding to the Beach

We went biking this past weekend to the beach.
Matt, Sarah, Dad and myself rode it 27 point something miles out to the ocean in just under 2 point something hours (and didn't we feel accomplished :)

It was a fun ride, very long and at one point (the end) I felt like taking a little snooze, biking is hard work ya know! :)

Once we got to the beach we took a celebratory rest and enjoyed the water, well kinda, it was soooooo cold I could barely stick my feet in it...

Getting back home was not as fun as getting to the beach, the sis, and I decided we wanted to take the train home and dad (grumbling all the way, hahaha, he wanted to ride back) was forced to accompany us.
The train took so long that Matthew got home before us and he was on bike!

So far this has been the longest bike ride I've ever done and it felt pretty good, next time I'm going to try and make it both ways like Mr. San Diego (aka Matt).

I'm looking forward to our next family bike ride when we break our record of over 25 miles and next time I'll bring my camera so I can take lots of pictures...

Till then, have a good night!


p.s. I think we should get this poster to put up in our house now that we're all starting to become serious bike fanatics :)

How It's made

I was researching some ice cream recipes and waffle cone recipes -- as I plan on getting a waffle cone maker to go along side my baby ice cream maker ^_^ -- when I came across these two videos on Youtube which I thought were interesting...
They describe how ice cream and waffle cones are made on an industrial level. It is quite fascinating to see everything they use to make these popular summer goodies look pretty and edible.

If you don't think about how unhealthy and gross the ice cream is after all those additives have gone in, the process is something to truly marvel at...

yum, yum, this picture is delicious!

The waffle cone maker I want to get looks something like this...isn't it cute!!!

Anyway so here is video number 2: How ice cream cones are made...

I'm very glad I got my ice cream maker, not only is the ice cream I make healthier and tastier than store bought ice cream it doesn't leave you with a heavy bloated feeling which probably comes from all those funky preservatives and artificial sweeteners...

I know I'll be just as happy too when I get my waffle cone maker and can start making healthy, tasty, delicious waffle cones, hint-hint, wink-wink :)

Anyway hope you enjoyed these videos!
