We have a very “take the baby with us” approach to parenting. There are very few events or outings that we do not bring Evelyn along for. Date night is one and for the time being, bike rides are another. We have a trailer but Evelyn is not quite old enough for it yet. So today, we enjoyed outdoor time apart. Doc and I hit the bike trails with some of our good friends! We live right by the river trails in Tulsa, so no car required! We biked to our rendezvous point at 71st and Riverside and then trekked North in the beautiful autumn air with our friends, the Jechs and Ashley! We biked a little over 5 miles to The River’s Edge. It is a fun little restaurant set up on North Riverside where you can get a bucket of beer and some nachos along with tasty sandwiches.We met up with Ashley’s better half Jeff later for dinner.
We decided on a wife swap for the above photo.
While we cycled our way back, Little Bird was at my parent’s house. Her grandma and grandpa took her and her aunts out for a day of fall fun! They went out to Carmichael’s Pumpkin Patch in Bixby, OK. If you live in the Tulsa area and haven’t headed out to Carmichael’s, you have been missing out every October! Rest assured, we will be going as a family next weekend. Evelyn played in the pumpkin patch and toddled from giant pumpkin to giant pumpkin. Next weekend I will post all about the patch and what there is to do there!
After we picked Evelyn up, we met back up with the Jechs and Ashley (and her husband Jeff who joined us later) for dinner at Hideaway Pizza. We watched the sun set from the patio together and enjoyed each other’s company! This was exactly what we needed to unwind and wrap up a beautiful weekend.
