Good morning! Summer has been riding her bike a lot with me lately and she is up to 5 miles for her longest distance. She loves getting outside with me. We call it R&R, Run & Ride. Evan gets jealous and wants to do the same, but not nearly as fast on his tricycle. So we have to do loops when he joins or mom goes with him. I suspect he will be riding a bike very soon.
Dawn was out of town recently and I took the kids to a Columbus Crew game. They loved it, but were ready to go by the time it was over. Thankfully we got to witness the first win in the new stadium.
Last weekend my mom's side of the family to get together to remember my Grandpa Giles. He passed away in December, but we held off for a big get-together with COVID. Summer spotted a photo of herself as a baby, in the collages, with her great grandparents Giles and Judy holding her. Our memories of Giles and Judy will always be held dear.
I did get some time on the trail before the get-together. Davou Park has some amazing trails. Mainly for mountain bikes, but I ran so early that I only saw one biker.
Nice view of Downtown Cincinnati from the park as well.
I have been growing a couple watermelon plants and trying to see how heavy I can make it. A little fun competition between myself and another meteorologist in Columbus.
The watermelon has been loving the heat, but we could use some rain. The dry mornings have been great to get out and go for a run with Evan while Summer has been going to vacation bible school.
Good Thursday morning! Grab the rain gear for today! We will see scattered showers and storms on and off through the day today with an approaching cold front. A few storms may get gusty as well today. Highs in the upper 80s and high humidity. We will see the storms moving south by this evening with a few spotty showers tonight and Friday morning in from the north. Cooler tomorrow with highs in the upper 70s and a mix of sun & clouds. Saturday looks beautiful with highs around 80, partly cloudy skies, and low humidity. Sunday another cold front will bring a few isolated showers or maybe a storm. Most of the day is looking dry. We see cool and dry air move back in for early next week with highs in the upper 70s on Monday and then warming into the lower 80s by midweek. Have a good one!
