we Moto!!

One of our favorite summer time activities is taking out the dirt bikes! Yes, motorcycles. Last year when we were dating Brad taught me how to ride them and I actually really like it! I still get scared every time we go. What keeps me going is something that my mission president said to me. He said that every day he tries to do something to get him out of his comfort zone. I think that as adults this is especially hard. But I believe that it is important. Every time we go, I am scared, I tip the bike, I fall, and always bring home new bruises...but I come home feeling empowered and really like I can tackle anything! So here's to growing and learning! Sorry for the tangent. But really, we have a great time, get dirty, and get some good QT with each other and the great outdoors.
Here is cute Brad. The day after I met him (March 30, 2007), he purchased his motorcycle. He loves it. Then a couple of months later he decided to purchase another one, an "extra" one. You know for like anyone who doesn't have one, or like if someone needs it...this "extra" one is mine :) When we pulled up to look at the bike I knew it would be purchased because it is blue, and it matches Brad's. Duh...you need matching motorcycles!





Yes, this is me...the pink jersey gave it away...even though how tough this picture looks is what should give it away. Brad has really taught me everything thing I know!

Our friends that we ride with gave us jerseys for our wedding. Brad- Blue, and Aisha-Pink!

Too fun. So I have to tell you because every time I remember we don't call. Without fail every sunday when we go to church, there is someone who comes up to us, asks who we are then says "do you know?" or "you look like Brad Johnson". Matt Krebs is one of them, he is now married and has a newborn and I think the other ones name is Branden Corver or something like that. Anyhow tell Brad all these people say Hi and want to see you guys.
