We had a great time!

Just got home a few hours ago from our club ride up north in Baldwin Michigan. Here we all are Saturday morning right before we took off for one of our rides. In case you can't find me I am in the front far left (red and black jacket and green scarf).
This is the little strip motel we stayed at. Nothing fancy but clean and comfortable.
These are all our sleds parked at a restaurant where we stopped for lunch. On Friday's ride we had 23 sleds and on Saturday we had 28 sleds.
Here's a picture of Craig and I along the trail. It was absolutely beautiful out there. My pictures do not do it justice but some areas are breathtaking. So many times I wanted to stop and take pictures of the scenery but when you have almost 30 sleds together it's kind of hard to stop just because I want a picture.
On my sled. OK, so it's really Craig's new sled but he's so wonderful to me that I got to ride the good sled all weekend. He's so good to me!!
Some of us women on the ride (me far right).
One of our stops along the trail.
This picture was taken when we stopped for lunch yesterday. It's an awful picture of Craig and I but I love it because of our rosy cheeks and red noses. You can just see from the looks on our faces that we are having fun.
I was a bit nervous to go on the club ride. Unlike Craig who is an experienced snowmobiler, I am an inexperienced rider. I only got on a sled for the first time 2 years ago and I have never rode over 30 miles in one day before. With that being said........ I rode 115 miles on Friday and 110 on Saturday for a weekend total of 225 miles. I was really proud of myself!!!

That looks like so much fun! You two really do look like you're having a great time.

I have to wonder with Jen if you can walk though. ;)

Looks like fun. Only problem I would have is Mrs74WIXYgrad would be a no show in the snow.

BTW, I have an award for you.

Well done Jessica! I loved this post so much. We hardly ever get such good snow nowadays, we used to but it is very disappointing now.

I would love to try the sleds.....it just looked the bestest fun.

Also, may I say, it is lovely to see photos of you and Craig, I feel I know you more now I have seen you.

Your camera must be a good one, because I can even see a few snow flakes falling in the photos.

Thank you for showing us. Sorry, I can never write a "short" comment!

love and light, Jeannie in Scotland where it is trying to snow.....
