Jake got me this bike for my birthday.

I know. Don't you love it? I mean, LOVE it? With cute little hearts instead of Os?

Amaya loves it almost as much as me. We've been biking every day and only almost biffed it 23 times. (It's very hard to hold a bag and bike with a baby on board. I guess there's a reason the xtracycle is too expensive.)

I told Jake I wanted a bike for my birthday after I rode around the waterfront in Portland this summer, with a couple of old high school friends. I remembered how much I liked biking.

I mean, wouldn't you just really love biking after going with these guys?

And here's Cody with his GF just in case this picture freaks you out.

(Sorry, Dan, she's just way cuter.)

Anywho, we went biking to Voodoo Doughnuts, which is Norwegian for "We are doughnut geniuses and you have to stand outside in a line if you want them." I got a mango doughnut with mango sparkly sour sprinkles on top and an oreo cookie doughnut with peanut butter drizzled over the whole thing. My friends only hassled me a little for buying two doughnuts (because look at these guys-- you know they only ordered one each) when I really wanted to buy 10. I hope I didn't confuse my sudden urge to bike with doughnut satisfaction. Sigh.

Here's Serious Cody, for the road.

I was at Portland State a couple years ago. I loved it there. Of course it was summer and the weather was perfect. My wife swears if we didn't love Hawaii so much we'd be in Portland.

I want a bike so bad. I also want a place to ride a bike. I want your bike and your place.
