What a gorgeous fall weekend! Saturday started rainy and cloudy, but it did stop. I made a fall inspired breakfast:
John went to play a poker tournament Saturday and he placed 6 out of 23. Not in the money, but I think he did pretty well. He doesn’t like tournaments and just prefers the cash games.
I did a lot of errands and checked out a craft show.
I bought a bowl from a woman who totally underpriced her handmade ceramics.
New bowl? $5! Like I really need another bowl…
Sunday turned out the best weather wise and we did a double dip ride. First was to Panera Bread and bagels! We have a My Panera card, which is the PB rewards card, and had a free bagel on it. Score!
It was humid this morning and I was pretty sweaty.
Over breakfast, we talked about where we wanted to bike to. We thought cupcakes, but that would have been a 42+ mile ride on top of a 16 mile breakfast ride – and we weren’t sure about 60 miles on the day. Instead, we decided to keep it more local and hit one of the ice cream shops.
After lunch, it was time to ride again.
We headed out the long way on the roads and then hit the path.
I love this part of the path. This is the beginning of the hill stretch for a couple of miles.
With all this rain and warm weather, the mosquitoes were swarming. I started getting bitten as soon as I stopped. Ick.
We actually did not go on the hill today. This was the turn around spot on our way to Martha’s!
In the background is Great Escape. It’s right across the street from Martha’s. Still open until the end of October.
Martha’s only does soft serve ice cream, but they do it well.
I decided on a sundae. It is called the Scholarship sundae for some weird reason. It is your flavor of ice cream topped with raspberry sauce, hot fudge and cookie crumbs. I had raspberry creme twist as my flavor.
This is the small 😯 It looks smaller in this picture, too. Oh – and I *never* eat cherries. The one fruit I really don’t ever eat.
We enjoyed listening to the screams as we ate our ice cream
I didn’t think I was going to be able to finish this sundae, but then I forget how much I actually can eat without getting full LOL. Not to mention it was really, really good. I am not afraid of food! I was totally carbed up for the ride home.

I could have done 60 miles today, but I think I would have been a bit tired. Plus, there was football to watch!
I picked against the Broncos (which breaks my heart), but I still supported them by wearing my jersey. Guess it paid off because I won the football picks for the week. Go Team Lori!! Woo Hoo!
