Tour of California

So I really needed to get that picture of my belly off the front page news!  We had a fun weekend planned for Saturday.  The Tour of California was making the second to last stop, stage 7, in Pasadena this year.  We road the train to Pasadena, took a free shuttle to the Rose Bowl and had a great time eating and watching as the bike racers all came rushing by at about 30 miles an our.  We had a great view and it was very exciting to see all the familiar faces of the men we watch in the Tour de France each year.  

Myles was even really interested. When the racers would come by our spot everyone would clap, hoot, and ring their cow bells.  Myles would smile and clap his hands wildly.  It was very cute.  We were lucky to get a spot on the loop.  The end of stage 7 was 5 laps around the Rose Bowl. We were lucky enough to get a spot only 150 M away from the finish line. 

 Poor Myles missed his nap because of the timing of the race, but he made it through most of the race, only falling asleep in the last lap.

Very exciting...I wish we could have seen it. With our new DVR we've been taping each segment of the race and I watch it while riding my bike. Myles looks more and more like a little boy and less like a baby, so sad!

Wow, I didn't know you guys were such die hard biking fans. Lining up with millions of people on a crowded street is proof.
Myles is looking like a little boy. Time for a new baby...
