Needless to say Mattie is getting bigger, running and now climbing on everything. She loves the pool and splashing in puddles. No talking yet, just babbling and pointing, but you can tell she is learning.
Summer wrapped up with the annual trip to Spearfish, SD for the Dakota Five-O. Evie ended up 4th on the Single Speed and I was 10th. Our first weekend away since Mattie was born and it sure was nice to sleep in past 5:30 am 🙂
A couple fall races on the calendar along with organizing the MBAA Enduro races in October and getting things setup for the 2022 MBAA XC season.
Hoping to remodel our master bath this fall depending on availability of materials. I suspect lots more bike rides with Mattie as well. She’s just tall enough to touch her feet on the Strider and loves her Shotgun bike seat!
Mattie is 15 months, I can’t really say she’s growing like a weed, but she climbs on more things every day!
Last week Evie and I raced MTB National’s. I got 5th in the Singlespeed race and Evie won her Cat 1 DH race (national champ!).
So far this summer we’ve done a little camping in Spearfish (Mattie doesn’t quite have the tent thing figured out yet) we’ve spent the rest of our time in Colorado with a trip home coming up later this month.
The snow is gone, spring has sprung, and it already feels like we are heading into summer. One year ago we were underway with COVID stay at home orders. Mattie was born at a good time to provide some much needed entertainment.
Now that she is 1 year’s old her favorite past times are: being chased, eating dirt from the flower pots, waving at planes, unrolling the TP in the bathroom, flushing the toilet, playing in Lucy’s bed and pretty much anything outdoors.
The MBAA season is already coming to a close with 2 final races left next month at which point we will look at heading out of town for the summer.
Here are some pictures from the latest happenings.
