Weekend in Reno

Here I am on my 'road trip' to Reno for the Northern California District Championships for my dad's cycling. I usually start offf excited--but then I settle in and like to ride like this...
then i lay down and took forever to get to my dads parents house outside Reno. They have a great house with tons of space to pee and even watch cows : )

On Saturday we met my dad at the road race and took the g-parents motorhome....ok, can i say that is the only way I want to travel now---

Isn't this the life!! That's my g-pa Joe. Don't we look alike? The road race didn't go so well for dad--but I had a blast!! S0, we went home and g-pa had a suprise!! He set up race course just for us

You wont see a picture of me sorry to legs wouldn't reach. But that's ok-- I needed to rest :)

My next photo I took for Balboa-- does this remind you of anything??

Sunday went much better, except my dad got caught in a crash and had to race against the Discovery Masters Team-- with like 7 guys-- and he had only 1 guy on his team at the race---but he still placed in the top 10--so we were proud of him..we know he wanted to win---maybe next year!!Here's the finish--we think he was 5th.

I leave you all with a pic from this weekend-- that apparently was funny to everyone but me---too small???too big???

What a brilliant trip.

That motorhome looks very nice.

I think you need to book it for your hols.


Maggie said...

OMG you do look like your gramp! hehehe
That motor home is sure the way to go! I could get comfy in one of those!

Love ya lots,

Peanut said...

I want a motor home. Think your gran and gramps will let me have theirs? I think you look pefect for that bed.

Bernard...what a family resemblance!!! Who knew??? That last picture is pretty darn funny I have to admit. That looked like a really fun time.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Hi, Bernard.
Glad you had great time there with your grandparents!
Tell your dad congrats of the top ten.
I'd like to know how you manage to get out of that bed??
Have a nice day

Oh, your G-pa Joe must get his good looks from you! And we think that last picture is just perfect, although our girl keeps giggling for some reason....

Wow, you dad looks really fit!
HOpefully he will do your even more proud next year!

Maybe you can train him to cycle faster!


Stanley said...


I don't see what's wrong with that last photo. You're sleeping... in a dog bed... what's the big dealio?

However, I was completely amazed at the family resemblance between you and g-pa Joe. It's uncanny.

Was that pretty lady running the bike course at g-pa Joe's house your mama? We never see mama pics.

Sorry your dad got caught in a wipe out. The fact he finished in the top 10 is pretty cool... considering.

Goober love,

I agree with you, the motorhome looks lovely. As does your perfectly sized bed.

Wow, your dad is pretty cool! So is your grandpa since he takes after you!


coco said...

you definitely take after your g-pa joe!! hahahaha!!!!!!! now we know where you get your great looks!

gosh i hope your daddy's careful out there on the road. but i'm sure his bike feels like just a part of himself, as much as he rides. what a fun sport - my mom used to ride lots but was too slow to race!!

and looks to me like the best is "just right" goldilocks (hee!)

*oops that was supposed to be "bed" not "best"
