Bart's sister and her husband are in town this weekend, so we've enjoyed spending some time with them, but since today is their anniversary, they opted to spend the evening together and left us to our own devices (can't blame them for doing so).
It meant, however, that we unexpectedly had a free Friday evening, and I was determined not to spend it at home, piddling away the time.
When RA was here earlier in the year, she and NPW had visited the Harvard Arboretum and both raved about how nice (and free!) it was.
The weather was beautiful yesterday and I suggested to Bart that we go out there after work. He said, "Can we bike?"
I said, "Only if you get the bikes out of the basement and I can stand around watching you try to fit them into the back of the CR-V."
We'd planned on taking a picnic dinner to eat there, but when Bart got home, we decided we'd just eat at the house to avoid dragging all our food with us, so it was later than we planned to leave.
Happily, the park is open until sunset and since it stays light until after 8 p.m. these days, we had plenty of time to ride through the whole park.
It was beautiful. We didn't take the camera, but I am sure we'll be back dozens of times both on foot and on bike.
A perfect Friday night, which ended with bowls of cereal and charades in the kitchen.
Yes, we play charades with two people.
