Sunday, April 9th, 2017.  We spent an amazing weekend at the Windy Gap Young Life camp in Weaverville, NC.  We  jumped off telephone poles, rode giant swings, played basketball, volleyball and octaball.  We rode water slides, went swimming, played pool, participated in fun camp games, sang songs, attended club meetings and completely exhausted ourselves. 

Friday, April 7th, 2017. I rode my bike to the top of Pilot Mountain during my lunch break, which is something that would have seemed crazy not so long ago.

Later that evening we piled into the van, along with Jackson's friends Simon and Harrison, for the trek to the Windy Gap Young Life camp in Weaverville, NC for their Family Weekend.

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017.  We celebrated our niece Izzy's 16th birthday with family at Chili's.

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017. A beautiful night for a group ride. Tonight's ride was to Ararat, VA along The Hollow, Trucker Road and Pedigo Ridge. 

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017. Ben scored another hat trick in his team's friendly in Lambsburg. More photos  here.
 
After the game I rode my bike to the top of Pipers Gap, then up the parkway to Orchard Gap, where I descended and rode back into Mt Airy.  This was my biggest ride to date.
Sunday, April 2nd, 2017. Mount Airy had their first food truck festival and it was awesome!
Saturday, April 1st, 2017.  I spent an awesome day kayaking Whitetop Laurel with good friends Vince and Kevin, then spent my evening driving Ben and his friend Luis around Winston-Salem while Amy celebrated her birthday with friends at the winery on Main Street.
