New Bike Parts and Ice Cream

Because I try to be a good dad, I arranged the meeting at Graeter's ice cream:

So my $20 skewers ended up costing me $35, but we had a good night out... after Graeter's we made a detour down to the Emerald Fields playground:

It was a lovely, cool night, and we had a nice drive home with the windows open and the stereo blasting out some Black Keys. Possibly, I took an extra lap around a roundabout on the way home.

The skewers worked out well, too:

  2. Hope you have a great fun with your family there as i seen in your pictures. I also love these type of fun things when going in market for purchasing anything.
