wish i could go back in time and ride it again.

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]

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.
...and there goes Sammy, on the last leg of our bike excursion.
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!
