I love Saturdays. They are the best. Especially when they are spent with good friends. Karl spent the morning with Zac at the Provo Bike Collective, fixing his up is FX, trying to build it into a fixed gear. Krysta and I hung out and did laundry, it was a great morning.
We had decided earlier that week we would bike out to Springville for Zac’s sister’s Birthday.
I have been having some pelvic aches, which my doctor said is totally normal, all be it painful, which is exacerbated by physical activity. So, I decided to sit this ride out at the last minute, and Krysta decided to keep me company. So I brought along our new camera to take some pics of the day.
The weather was unseasonably warm. It mean, it is only February 4th.
It was 40 degrees. And when you are riding 10 miles, it is really warm.
Krysta and I stopped to wiat for them to catch up, and we met these sweet horses. She said it made her miss home. Her parents keep horses, among many other animals like chickens, and last time we visited there was a cow.
Did I mention miss Karen was there too. She loves to ride with her dad.
I mean, that’s love.
Here is the birthday girl:
Miss Cassidy Whitmore!
So we met up a the Art City Trolly Car Restaurant. The food was great and we had a really nice time. All of our riders were a little tired.
After a delicious lunch, where Zac knew one of the big wigs at the place, who gave us a free piece of cheese cake, we headed out to see what else Springville had to offer.
They just got a brand new library, so we checked it out.
It was a really great place. The kid area was super cool. Karen and I sat down and read a book.
There was some interactive art on the wall, Karl had really good time there.
After the library closed less than a half hour after we arrived, we decided to go and visit the Springville Museum of Art.
I had been there once before on a field trip with Heritage.
It really is a great museum. Half of it was closed, they were setting up a new exhibit, but there was still lots to see.
Karl was pointing out here that the frame was also painted.
Karen and I found this great corridor of portraits, which was one of my favorite areas of the place.
There was also a large exhibit of Sovit art, which made me miss Albania, which we all of course loved.
Very powerful stuff.
I love the style of this one.
Defiantly worth a revisit.
We were loosing light, so we started heading home.
We stopped to take a few final pictures.
You know, I don’t care what people say about Utah Valley, it is a beautiful place.
There they are!
We came home, hung out, watch the first Twilight movie, laugh our heads off, and went to bed. It was a really great day.
I love having good friends that you can just be with, be who you are, and enjoy things.
