Bikes, Blues & BBQ!!

Every year, Fayetteville hosts a bike rally called, Bikes, Blues & BBQ. It has grown to be the largest motorcycle rally in the United States benefiting local charities! This was our 3rd year in a row to go with our good friends, David and Jessica. As usual, we had a blast and Zayde enjoyed the sights and sounds.

I decided to ride on their bike with David, and Jessica rode in our car. I was very nervous and David didn't help out at all- he thought it was so funny when he gassed it, taking off at a stop light! (I thought it was funny, too. =) I kept squealing and pinching David's side when he scared me!)

The Hickman's



We had a pre-dinner at Jose's. Later on, David and Zack ate BBQ, while I had a funnel cake... Mmmm!



Zayde loves riding on tricycles and bikes, so this motorcycle was right up his ally- he loved it!



Zayde also loves riding on his daddy's shoulders...

(FYI: Zayde was NOT into smiling for pictures this night.)



Me and Jessica posing with a robot- they have some of the neatest sights there!
(Yes, Jessica is pregnant and looking beautiful! No, I am not pregnant, although I look like it in this picture for some reason.)



This bike matched Zayde's outfit!



Poor Baby, it was 11:00p.m. before we left. Zayde was so tired that he fell asleep in his daddy's arms. (It made for a sweet picture, though!)

It was good to see you guys there. Love the pictures, Zayde was hanging out with the big boys, ha!!!Every year it gets alittle more crazyness with the people that BB&Q bring out. But I enjoying looking at all the different bikes & eating good food. Feels like the Fall time of the year.

Looks like you guys had a blast! We went when I was pregnant with Dagan. But, I was so sick that I had no fun! ("Morning" sickness and porta pottys do not mix well!!) I would love to go back when I can enjoy everything.

It looks like you guys had a great time! We wanted to go up there, but David ended up working too much and we never got a chance! Your hair is getting so long, and you do NOT look pregnant--you look great! :)

I love town festivals and that looks like a fun one! I always used to think I wanted a bike until I realized I'm too vain to squash my hair with the helmet! Oh well! You and Jessica both look beautiful! And I'm always taken aback by how blue & beautiful your eyes are! Zayde definitely got your pretty baby blues!
