For Veteran’s Day today we headed back to Lagoon Valley for more mountain biking! Casey did the tough hills while Penny and I stayed on flat ground 🙂

After our herpetology lab meeting last week we decided to drop hundreds of bouncy balls from the top floor of our building, down six flights of stairs, and see how many could get down into the basement. Our lab is awesome.
The one ball that made it to the bottom!
A picture of me hiking and herping with some friends is on the UC Davis Evolution and Ecology major’s website! Check it out HERE
You can also see me on Dr. Brad Shaffer’s website! He is the professor I have been doing all my turtle research under. People in the lab and ME!

What does Casey get when he doesn’t feel well? His comfort food: waffles and chocolate chip cookies 🙂
She likes helping with the laundry
All snuggled up in the corner
We went mountain biking today about 30 minutes away in Vacaville at a place called Lagoon Valley. It was so beautiful and a much easier ride than the last time we went riding! They had a frisbee golf course, a dog park, an archery range, a lake, picnic grounds, fields that went on forever, horse stables, and we even saw a family of deer!

This was Casey at the top…
…and this was me at the top
Tons of open space!
Nice picnic area
My first time riding with no hands!
Next time we have to go to the dog park!
We started off our weekend by going to the world’s largest corn maze, located just 10 minutes away from us. It is 45 acres of mind puzzling maze, but we managed to do it all in 1.5 hours! Here is the website: coolpatchpumpkins.com
Master of the map
We made it to the first station: Ducati Island!
We made it to the second marker: Starbuck’s Station
Casey’s smart phone compass came in handy
There were TONS of caterpillars burying in the ground
I got us lost
We made it to the final station!

The last part!
We made it out!
Here is our map. Red is the right path we took, blue is where we got off track. We did pretty good!
