This afternoon, we took advantage of the nice day and rode our bike to the playground. It was naturally packed so we headed along to our first and last visit to Souped Up Cafe. I say our last visit because they’re closing down soon rather than pay more rent. It was too hot for soup, but their sandwiches sounded amazing, too (Ham and Swiss: Cob-smoked ham, caramelized onions, Swiss, garlic butter, and stone-ground mustard). But for a panini which was supposedly already made and just had to be smushed/cooked upon order, we still had to wait 20 minutes. We finally made it back to the lake and one of us lounged in the grass while the other ran around finding rocks.
This is the first picture of my pretty new bike. Sweet, eh? It’s a Bianchi Milano Citta and it’s an early push present for baby passenger number two, due mid-July. It is soooo nice having eight gears after riding around with just one. It was hard to choose which city bike since there are so many out there these days. I was tempted by the Gary Fisher city bike, too, because there’s a little hole in my heart from having sold my Hoo Koo E Koo before the move.
