Simple Pleasures ~ A Family Bike Ride

We took off early last week, packed a light dinner, and headed into Chicago for a bike ride on the lakeshore; we rode for awhile, then stopped at a park to enjoy homemade chicken salad on croissants ~

This little guy fell asleep right away ~

This "big" little guy was very excited about finally figuring out how to get across the bars, so he did it several times in a row, until his arms hurt and he just couldn't bear to do it again :)

Then we rode some more, and found a secluded spot of lakeshore surrounded by large boulders - a perfect place to splash around and play some more...

Sometimes it's the simple things that are the best things, don't you think?
