New Form of Transportation!

Ok... so my dad has been staying with us on and off for the last couple of weeks... and he's been awesome while he's been here. Steve and I haven't washed a single dish for probably two months, yet we always have clean dishes! And today he cleaned out our microwave.. a task that neither of us EVER felt up to. Anyway... He did the coolest thing today. Yesterday, we were all talking about rising gas prices and how expensive it is to drive all over the place all the time, especially when we only have one car right now. We started talking about how we really need to buy a bike and just ride to work, since Steve works so close and it would save a ton of money.. Mind you, this is all just small talk.. Well, My dad came home with a little surprise today!

YAY FOR MY DAD!!!!! He went to DI this morning and bought a bike for freakin 8 bucks! So what we are going to do, is Steve is going to wake up like, what... 15 minutes earlier than he normally would, and bike to work (75% is downhill). I go ahead and take the car to work, and when Steve is ready to come home from work, I can go pick him up (since on the way back it's 75% uphill, in the heat of midday). I'm SO excited about this... and I was like... Hey.. I can ride the bike to work! I'd love to do that! I've always wanted to ride a bike around town.... but Steve just laughed at me and said I wasn't allowed to since I was pregnant... :P Anyway... I was really excited about this, but I think it caught Steve offguard... he had this "someone just sucked all the oxygen out of the air" look on his face... I think he'll like it once he gets used to it though. And if not, then it was only 8 bucks, and I'll ride it when I'm no longer "with child".

Anyway, once Steve got used to the bike, my dad and I rode it around for a little bit..
