Bike Rides, Donuts, & Puppy Parties





This weekend was a blast, and the weather was incredible. Saturday Jen and I went thrifting where I got an awesome green shirt and the most cutest purse. In the afternoon Maureen, Jen, Adam, Kevin and I took a bike ride on the Paint Creek Trail which runs from Rochester to Lake Orion and it's around 20 miles total there and back. We took our time on the way up to lake orion and stopped by the cidar alond the trail for a quick glass of refreshing cidar and yummy cinnamon apple cidar donuts. Oh gosh they were sooo good.






We made it up to L.O. around 6 and realizing that sunset was at 7 we booked it back 10 miles to Rochester. Luckily we got back in less then an hour, just in time to lay on some grass and watch the sun disappear behind the trees.








On our way back I took some fun pictures mainly trying to catch all the deer we passed. We came across 8 deer, at one point I had to stop because there were deer on either side of me and I wasn't about to ride through their group. We waited for them all to cross the path and were back on our speedy way.







I wish this trail was closer, it's about a half an hour car ride away, it was so beautiful and it smelled so great. Fresh smell of autumn. :)






Saturday night I met up with some old friends that were visiting the D. We had all gone to college together and Mike & Morgan moved back to Pittsburgh last year. I miss them and it was so fun seeing them again, and some other acquaintances. And now Tripp has a new friend named Ira. He's a Jack Russell/Corgi mix too, but as you can see with Kevin cuddling him he looks more Jack Russell then Corgi... But the puppies got along great and I'm sure they are going to be buddies. (Oh and see my amazing new bag and shirt... I love them!)







Sunday Kevin and I rode down to Ferndale for breakfast with the gang before Mike & Morgan headed back.

I didn't pick my computer up once this weekend. Awesome. Aaaand I rode over 50 miles since Wednesday. I have my feature ready for next week, I cleaned my house... I think I deserve some oxfords. :)

I like all the photos that convey the speed of the bike ride. And for some reason, I am craving a donut now. :)
