That was the good…now for the bad…
And that basically outlines the entire trip aside from the lounging at the pool! 🙂
So yesterday I rode a real bike for the first time in like 8 years…and I got a flat tire about 5 miles into the ride. BOO!
Luckily we were down at the beach and a very short walk from the place where we were going to go paddle boarding in the harbor. Ryan, his mom and I all went. It was a ton of fun! AND Ryan’s mom stood up like two seconds into our trip! I have wonderful pictures that I’ll have to post later once I get them developed. I bought a waterproof disposable camera (haven’t used one of those in FOREVER)…it was probably a very good thing I bought one of those considering my luck with the flat tire!
After our bike ride and hour of paddle boarding, I came back and baked for Ryan’s birthday. I made Red Velvet cupcakes and Carrot Cake cupcakes. They looked BEAUTIFUL if I do say so myself! I have pictures of them also which I’ll upload later. My baked goods will keep Ryan and I from ever becoming too thin. And after a long month of dieting and a very active day, the baked goods were well deserved! 😉
And this morning, because Ryan and I are both still on East Coast time, we were up way before anyone else. So we went for another bike ride. (I’m super obsessed now with bike riding!!!) We went for a wonderful 12 mile ride around the Back Bay.
So now, tired after the bike ride with a slightly sore butt, we are planning to go to this DELICIOUS (and very unhealthy) breakfast place called Side Street Cafe. The cinnamon rolls are to die for and, I feel, very well deserved after the ride! 🙂
