Big Texas Toy Run and stuff

Disclaimer: Always make sure you hit publish after you write post from phone. I didnt realize it didnt post until last night. Happy Tuesday y'all! I have been wanting to blog everyday and yet I am just now getting to it since last week.  I'm doing this post from my iPhone on lunch hour so I feel a little rushed. Anyways, last weekend was our annual Big Toy run that Todd and I along with group of friends like to participate in.  We start out early in the morning to meet up , then we go have breakfast at yummy diner in Ft Worth before we head to the park where we get wait for ride to begin.  There is a band and food trucks and of course portable potty's to hold us over for a few hours.  This year was not the greatest turnout because of the weather but it goes on rain or shine.  It was rainy and cold all day and windshield temp was 31 degrees. I know it was colder in other parts of the country but stand outside yourself in the cold damp windy weather on a motorcycle for 6 hours. You'll be chilled to the bone. There was still hundreds and hundreds if bikes but I've seen it much more crowded. The ride starts at the same time in Dallas location and Ft Worth location and we meet in the middle in Grand Prairie at a stadium. We get police escort and the onramps get blocked during the ride on highway. People park their cars and bring chairs to wave at us and take pictures . It is so fun! 
Here are some pictures from that day. 

Have a fantastic day!

  2. I hope you weren't insulted that I said on your IG about how 39 really isn't that cold! I was just making a point how different the perspectve of "cold" is when you live in different parts of the country!
    I am in awe and how giving both you and Todd are. It always makes me heart so happy, and I'm very lucky we crossed paths in this huge blogger world. <3
