As Seen From My Bike: Follow the Creek to Pizza

Bobby and I like to bike to whatever restaurant laziness in cooking has led us to patronize for dinner. That way we feel a bit  less lazy, and we feel like we've earned our dinner.

 On this particular night, the destination was my favorite pizza place, since we had recently gone to his. Bobby and I are a divided household- it's sad, we're unequally yoked in this regard. I hope we can work through it.

With all the rain we've had, the "creek" has turned into a sizable river. These kiddos were cooling off after a long day of playing frisbee golf (we live right next to an enormous park with an 18 hole course that backs up to our apartment).
 We live at the intersection of 3 bike trails. This is like living at the interchange of 3 highways.  Perfect.
No, I'm never going to get tired of making fun of pretentious hipsters and their scrunched faces/ mustache obsession. LEARN TO SMILE AND GET A REAL MUSTACHE, HIPSTERS.
My favorite calzone- ricotta cheese, cream cheese, jalapenos, pineapples. Minus the sausage it usually comes with, add some garlic olive oil on top, enjoy the bliss.
I approve of this investment.
 After we were full of grease, cheese, and soda, we headed back home. Here you can see our tax dollars at work. Hello you beautifully maintained biking trail.

We made a bank run on the way back. The leftovers are strapped to Bobby's bike trunk with a bungee cord, and he's in the drive through lane. This scene makes me smile.

All of these pictures were taken with my late LG phone. R.I.P, old phone. Sorry technology has marched on without you.


  1. Oh this looks like so much fun!! I want to get a bike for my husband and myself, and a baby seat on the back and go for bike rides :) (Especially if they end in Pizza!)

  2. You definitely should! It's so rewarding, and I always end up in a better mood after a bike ride. It reminds me of being a kid again, and that's a nice reminder :)
