Last week we took Boomer and Bella to the beach. It was hotter than heck here so we went there to cool off.
The 4th of July is not one of Boomer's favorite holidays. The illegal fireworks started two days prior to the 4th but the 4th was horrible for him. I had to give him tranquilizers because he just shakes and pants so bad, it's no fun at all. This year I tried something different (at Keith's request), I put cotton balls in his ears. It seemed to help a little bit.
Knowing that I had 4.5 days off of work coming up, I set up lots of fun things to do with friends. Tuesday started with a Fremont Freewheelers group ride through the Fremont hills. This ride is always full of fun people that are fast and love to climb hills. I'm neither but I enjoy their company anyway. I rode to the start so the ride was a total of 35 miles for me.
Wednesday I went to Livermore to ride with Kathryn, a friend from my Cinderella training group. We toured the wineries without stopping to taste any wine. For one, I don't drink and two, it was 8:30 in the morning. It was COLD and windy. But the ride was fun, we completed 21 miles.
After riding, Sara and I went to a movie. We saw Larry Crowne with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. It was a very good "feel good" movie and I highly recommend it.
This morning I had plans to ride Calaveras with Soraya and another princess from our training. Much to my surprise, two other gals showed up too. Here they are at the false summit.

Here is Karen as she crested the top of the wall. All smiles.
