Don and I went to a civic union retirement dinner this evening. It was the first really beautiful spring weather we've had! Warm, sunny, and NOT windy. I've been riding the Amsterdam lately in this 8th month of pregnancy because it's lighter than the Pashley and an easier ride. Note that I didn't say "better" ride because the two bikes are very different. I love my Pashley. She requires more muscle, but I like that because she also performs better as an all around every day bike, and she is sturdy and tough.
The Amsterdam is very easy going. The fact that she's lighter just makes pedaling around easy with all my other extra weight. They are both good bikes.
My mom has been very sweet throughout the pregnancy and has continually gotten me maternity clothes so that I might look pretty. She bought me this cute spring dress a few weeks ago and I really like it. The sandals, of course, are those aforementioned new ones. Don doesn't like them. He reserves disdain for wedges.
Here is handsome Don on his Batavus Favoriet! Nothing says style like Hugo Boss and a Batavus.
