that was the meet & greet.

on to the biking:

bitt was getting acquainted with my aunt's new bike.

[bitt's bike at home has no working gears and only one working brake, so this *new* bike was a really treat for her to ride]

boyf's bike; bitt's bike

3 of 5 riders; me - acting photographer

**

only Damian wore/had a helmet

**
i love this pic & this move: sharp-angled turn
**
**
spinnin' blurry wheels...zoom zoom!!
**
**
me doing the pose i call 'the little mermaid pose' first blogged about HERE
*
[i know what you're thinking...maybe...i didn't think it until the boyf said it, but the boyf compared me to Freddy Krueger with my hat, stripes, bike gloves. I swear, I hadn't thought of it, until he said it, and when he brought it up, I couldn't STOP seeing Freddy Krueger in my outfit. Sucks too, because I was stuck wearing it. Whatever.]
**
**
i wore my thrifted chain-strap purse.
love it.
**
**
my pretty bitt in blue
on my aunt debbie's bike,

*******************

I really loved getting out with the group.

so often, it's just tomas and i, or even just me.

recruiting bitt, finding a new bike-buddy in Damian, and getting some quality bike-time in with my little cousin, Sammy, singing and pedalling and laughing...I really couldn't have asked for a better Sunday afternoon.

so glad to have shared it with you all. thanks for reading.

stay tuned for:

the rest of the LAKE HOUSE loveliness

hope to see you back.

Happy Tuesday, June-Bugs!
