Happy "sort of" Father's Day






This is Shawn's new toy that he enjoys riding to and from work on the back roads through Springville. It is a Kawasaki KLR 650 which is a "dual-sport" motorcycle that is popular for riding on highways and mountain trails. Shawn's plan is to ride into Mexico when he can convince his buddy Mike who has the same bike and got Shawn hooked on the KLR. (and convince Farrah :D ) Anyways...Rae has now gone on two short rides around the elementary school pretty much entirely in first gear with a little in second. She loves it and asks for it right when he gets home. Evan justs helps Dad park the bike and revs the throttle. His main father's day present was a big toolbox to keep everything in one place. Shawn has used it already and messes around with the bike looking at what "farkle" (motorcycle terminology) he can add. Already added a seat cover that meant he takes off the seat and straps it around and screw the seat back on as well as the plastic sides...haha

Not a fan of this post AT ALL! Those things make me SO nervous. Maybe he can have his dream come true about Mexico once he retires? Do you think he will forget about it by then?? HAHA. I am still in shock that he is a "motorcycle guy", all too weird to me. He is just a well rounded guy...fisherman, hunter, volleyball player/coach, horse back rider, surfer, you name it he does it! Miss you guys too much! I especially miss Ev's little voice. Maybe you should post a video of him for us?!
