Steve and I have been throwing around the idea of getting matching scooters. Fun huh!?! Well I've never rode before so... um ya I need to think about this a little longer. Anyway in the meantime we'll get one big enough to hold both of us two up and if I decide in the future to join him, we'll add mine at that time.

For fun we went to the scooter store to sit on a few and this is what we came up with....

This two tone green one is our favorite!
It's the Genuine Buddy International 150cc

The Blue and Orange are the
Genuine Buddy 125cc

This white one is a Lance Cali Classic 125cc

Choices, choices! They're all so cute it's hard to choose just one but since we'll eventually be in an RV we definitely need to control how many end up in the fleet, LOL!!! My only hesitation is that right now we have one car so if Steve does decided to get the scooter he's going to need to commit to riding in the heat of summer. Otherwise, it's in our best interest to get a second car instead. I'll keep you posted...

Bike Carrier for the Boys!

We picked up a bike stroller for the boys so we can finally take them along with us and hopefully get out a little more. Plan on taking it for a spin tonight as soon as the sun hits the horizon. Still pretty hot during the day even though we've had cooler temps the last few days. I get so tired of saying I want to do this or I want to do that but never seem to follow through with the plans. Really looking forward to riding again and engaging in life. Been sitting home way too much dreaming about when the day comes but it seems the days just keep passing me by.

I'll get a few more pics up this evening once we get back.

The boys were trying it out in the living room. LOL!!! Carl (the white one) is more daring so I'm sure he'll enjoy it the most but E.B. hopefully will be happy just tagging along.

Maiden Voyage! The boys had a wonderful time. E.B. (little black one) who is usually the most terrified just laid down, stretched out and relaxed. Carl had to sit up the whole time wondering where we were going. Heading out again in a few minutes. Will get better pics later instead of with my cell phone.

Rival 11" Electric Skillet

So I decided to get myself an electric skillet last night. Grew up with one but never felt the need to get one once I got married 23 yrs ago. With the hot summer months on us and tired of having to turn the a/c colder every time I use the stove/oven, I thought I would give the rival a try. Of course this is with the intent of taking it along with us in the RV. While surfing the net for info & reviews I came across this youtube video and thought I'd give the recipe a try.

Ingredients: 1 pkg dry onion soup mix, 1/2 can whole berry cranberry sauce, 8oz. french salad dressing. Mix together, add chicken and bake at 350.

Hope it tastes good!

Conclusion: Fantastic! Not only was the chicken great but the Rival did it's job. For $20 it has even heat, easy clean up and very light weight. Love it!
