Hope everyone’s spring/summer is starting off great! It’s super hot here in Florida right now, it’s weird because it was kind of chilly for a really long time, which is not normal in Saint Aug, but this last week was a scorcher! Today it was 95, but “felt like” 102 🙂

So last column I mentioned I was headed out to Babes in the Dirt 5 in California. It’s crazy how many girls who attended, actually it was a sold out event! We all met up and rode all day in the desert together, partied at night. Husquvarna provided bikes for the girls to ride that didn’t have bikes. I also took everyone around on a little path so they could learn and get used to the bikes. It was actually nice weather which usually doesn’t happen because its normally always super windy. There was a food truck there that you could buy food from if you didn’t bring your own and everyone was having a good time. My friend Brittany came with me to help interpret and when we were done, before we flew back home, we went down to LA and walked around and had an amazing dinner.

This past weekend my family hung out at my parents house for Memorial Day. My grandma and her husband came here and we just stayed home and went out to downtown St. Augustine. Funny thing, I have lived here for so long but I have never been to the Saturday morning Farmers market that is at our amphitheater. We all went there on Saturday and it was a lot of fun with lots of cool things for sale and a band (not that I could hear it or anything hahaha)

On Memorial Day my dad got all of our “toy’s” ready and we all rode around on pit bikes, go karts and mini bikes. My dad even jumped on one of my bikes (I was a little worried about him!) We were having so much fun tearing up the yard and hitting parts of my old track. Of course I’m flying around on my little mini bike and a bee or a wasp comes from out of no where and stings me! My mom was laughing and said that could only happen to me 🙂

So I’m actually going to be staying home for most of this summer (possibly a class in Canada) and I’m going to have classes in the Fall instead of the summer time. I’m pretty excited that I won’t have to travel so much this summer just hang out here, ride and sit at the pool!

Enjoy the sun….
