Sea to Sea Cycling tour

Last Sunday I had the priviledge to be part of the praise team for an outside Sunday service for the 150 0r so Sea to Sea Cyclists who are traversing our country this summer. This group is sponsored by the Chrisitian Reformed Church and are riding from the Oregon coast all the way across the country to New Jersey for the entire summer to bring awareness to issues of poverty and hunger. It is called "Sea to Sea, ending the Cycle of Humger" The service was held outside at Englewood High School and was very inspiring.

Barb and I had a chance to talk to several of the riders afterward. Many of them are blogging during the trip ,so I am including the link: Sea to Sea. If you go to the link, you can also see the acutal progress of the riders as they ride each day. Pretty cool.

I am soooo jealoous to be riding. Some day.

Enjoying Colorado Summers

We were able to take a break in the middle of July for a week up in Beaver Creek...6 days to enjoy the green mountain sides and beautiful flowers, several great hikes, and a couple of bike rides. Also time to sit by the pool and enjoy music and food. Our first attempt to share this with all of you and hope we can figure out how to do a blog!

Welcome to the Blogosphere!

Hello to the world! This is Cara, Bruce & Barb's daughter. I have created a blog for them in order to "encourage" them to share their lives. We have enjoyed being more connected to our family all over the country, so I think that my parents should blog too. They aren't convinced they have enough "cool" pictures, stories, info. to share. I'm convinced they do, so here we go! I'll give them a tutorial soon, so they can post on their own!
