Memorial Day Tail Tale

May 31, 2014 § Leave a comment

It’s the 1 week anniversary of Memorial Day 2014. What better reason to finally post the pics? Just for fun, here’s a Memorial Day Tail Tale to go along with the photos.

For the second annual time, we decided to take a Memorial Day bike trip (18 miles round trip) to Isles Bun and Coffee. Our goal: to eat Puppy Dog Tails (a.k.a. long, chewy, frosting slathered baked goods) for lunch.

18 miles is no small thing when you’ve got a 4.95-year-old on the Afterburner (a.k.a. a third wheel attached to the back of B’s bike) and Lew who’s 2 strapped into a bike seat behind me. These kids are tolerant. But.

  • Hiram can only pedal so long at a time (although for the record, he ultimately pedaled all 18 miles).
  • And Eldyn. Well, he’s 2. And strapped into a bike seat behind me.

All this means is that our 18 miles were broken into segments divided by parks. The Rabbit.


The park with the pulleys.


The old-school wooden park at Lake Calhoun.


And finally, the Lake Harriet Park.


During this craziness, Hiram lost his tooth. Where you ask? Well. We’re not sure. But we do know it was somewhere between Lake Calhoun


and his third bite of puppy dog tail.


He didn’t notice himself until we were already halfway home. Luckily, all this documentation was enough for the tooth fairy. She found his tooth, appraised it, and gave him two golden dollars. Hiram is thrilled that all his brushing and flossing has finally paid off.
