Bikes and Butt Cramps (written by Emily)

Mom and Dad went on a bike ride with a few friends that went from our house in Columbia at 3:00 AM to Charleston at about 8:30 PM. Aunt Heather drove our van, & Billy, Brian, Matt, Andy, Mom, & Dad biked. Dad got butt cramps (or at least it hurt so bad he finally admitted it). Mom got huge bruises on her knees. I don't know about the rest of the crew. We kids stayed at home. Madison and Mackenzie Hendrix baby-sat us for hours and hours. But(t) that's all I really know. Call my mom for any further details!

Thanks for the update and how do you get bruises on your knees while riding a bike?

I was just wondering that same thing. Nice update Emily. Have mom upload some fun summer pictures and teach you how to post those for us to see. Love you.

I can understand how you'd have butt cramps after 136 miles.... but the bruises were probably from the incident Shiloh related to me that afternoon about how she went to stop and didn't manage to unclip from her pedals quickly enough and flipped over with bike landing on top of her.

Flipped is not really the right word embarrassingly enough "tipped" would be more appropriated since I was technically stopped and just kind of lost my balance while trying to get my foot out and just fell over. I wasn't even hurt, but I tend to be slightly anemic and I haven't been watching my iron intake like I should so I just bruise really easily. They look cool though.

Pictures would be fun! (hint, hint!)

Until we find our memory card, there probably won't be any pictures. And dad rode 152 miles, but mom just couldn't take it.
