Don had another day off. Praise!
We got up to some family-via-bike shenanigans. Very casual. Very fun.
Since Don was around I made him ride his old GT mountain bike and tow Dexter.
Don had to buy some pedals at redbike so we stopped in for a bit. I noticed this very pretty Steel Wool bike and commented on its awesomeness. I was then informed that it belonged to my friend, Euna.
Euna. Nice bike. Very nice!
Then lunch at Upper Crust.
I always forget about the ridiculous array of desserts available here. We didn't end up getting any (so sad) because we were full up on potato salad. It's sort of silly to be excited about potato salad but the Upper Crust one is very tasty.
We also ran into our neighbour on our way in. He was picking stuff up for their road trip out to their cabin. Love these happy run-ins. They remind me that people who live near me likewise frequent the lovely independent establishments in and around our 'hood.
Cake cake cake.
It's still summer.
Patio season in Edmonton is wonderful. A real celebration of the good weather we're starved for most of the time.
Dexter was incredibly good at lunch today. We had a little booth so he would lay down and sit up an drink his milk with his daddy. Ate his blueberries quietly. Only climbed up on the table a few times.
I could definitely get used to Don having more time off. It's leisurely and fun and it's really good to do normal things together. The consequence of being really busy people with wacky schedules is we don't get to see enough of each other. Afternoons spent doing normal, boring stuff is actually a treat. Family time? Yes, please.
It's also nice to have an extra set of dad-hands around too.
I can't believe July is almost done. WAH!
