Admittedly, there are certain destinations that I don't like biking to. And I also tend to stay away from cycling with Dexter if we're farther away from home and we are guaranteed to be out past his bedtime. So the other night, we carpooled! Picked up two of our dinner companions on the way to Chinatown for a fundraiser dinner for Edmonton's Chinese Garden.
At a red light I stared longingly out the car window at the fine lady above, on what looked like her Devinci Paris. She and I are helmet and saddle sisters too!
Then I looked out the other window and saw another cycling dude who was eager to be photographed.
I haven't been to a Chinese banquet in a while, so I was eager for all 11ish courses. The key is to pace yourself.
We were lucky enough to be treated to lion dance!
Dexter was very fun and charming, even though he kept wanting to go hang out with the seafood in the aquarium.
The many courses of food were paraded out, one by one.
And Dexter helped his dad deliver greetings.
If I'm going to drive the car on an evening out, I'd rather it be filled with 5 people instead of 2. The bike would have been a better post-meal constitutional, but with an expiring Dexter at the end of the evening, it was nice to just whiz home and put the dude to bed.
I promised him we will bike tomorrow!
