A Rainy Sunday Parkways

It was a little rainy, but today Portland Sunday Parkways came to our neighborhood, so we braved the elements, strapped the little guy into his seat, and set off on a family bike ride. Paul promptly ate a bug but gamely soldiered on.

Sunday Parkways is fun- the city closes off major streets so you can ride your bike traffic free. The route goes by different parks where there's music, Zumba classes (we didn't partake) and food stands (we did partake). Great people watching.

Anthony fell asleep within minutes of us setting out, which he always seems to do on the bike lately. He spent the first part of the ride nodding off or being cranky.

Refusing to have a good time.

A stop for ice cream made it all worthwhile, though.

Next Sunday Parkways is July 28th in North Portland.

We're Having a Garage Sale!

We're not busy enough around here so we decided to have a garage sale. It's going to be pretty cool so if you're around these parts this Saturday be sure to come on by. The theme is "When Worlds Collide". We need to clear out 1) a ton of baby/toddler gear and clothes and 2) two tons of Sci Fi collectibles, action figures, and comics so Paul can make room for more. (You do know he's a bit of an action figure enthusiast, don't you?). There's been a lot of unpacking and organizing in preparation for the big day, which means lots of fun boxes to  play with.

Mint in Box!
