Last Thursday I had the sunniest bike ride all over town. It started with attending the Capital Ex parade in a new polkadot dress!
Leanne came too.
We found a nice spot on the bleachers and met up with Dexter (who had come separately via train).
Then it was time to enjoy marching bands!
Crazy super bikes.
Leanne and Nielsen cheer!
The sun did a number on us, so it was time to cool off with cold drinks and taco treats at Tres Carnales.
This little girl was rad.
My guacamole y totopos was the bomb.
Later, Leanne and I went to 124 Street to scope out Hellas Foods for a future cookbook adventure, and we stopped off to rest at the Duchess.
And we sampled their seasonal macaron flavours.
Then another sunny ride back to the Southside! It's fun to hug your friends as you say hello and goodbye, but there is a kind of beauty when you both come to an intersection on the way home and simply turn in opposite directions (east for Leanne, west for me) while waving and yelling, "See you later!"
It feels so retro, like when I used to ride home after school with my friends.
