we had the day off work yesterday for memorial day. the weather was absolutely beautiful, so we packed up a picnic lunch and our mountain bikes and headed to a local park. it was really nice to eat on a picnic bench next to the lake while enjoying the gorgeous warm weather. after we ate, we took a bike ride around the lake. the trail that went around the lake turned out to be not really conducive to biking at all, and we ending up having to walk our bikes most of the way around the lake. it was the first time we took our bikes out for the season and we were really looking forward to biking, so we went to another nearby bike trail for some real biking.
when we came home, we cooked hamburgers on the grill for dinner and we had some apple pie with vanilla ice cream for dessert. we finished off the night with a leisurely evening bike ride around our neighborhood and then a game of scrabble on our back porch. it was a great way to spend memorial day!
