Isn't it Lovely?

We ventured into the city today to go to Running Away Multisport and pick up some gear (can't wait to get my Nike Trainer system set up). Since we were in the area, we decided to check out the old Bucktown/Wicker Park neighborhood. When I first met Brian, this was the neighborhood he worked in. We spent a lot of time there, and while it certainly has changed, it's still got a good vibe and is a fun place to visit. We mainly window shopped, but did go in the Kidrobot Pirate Shop, and ended at Lovely Bake Shop to pick up some cupcakes and a mini peanut butter creme pie. It's only a few blocks from our old house, which would have been very dangerous. It was crowded, mostly with people on laptops. Not kids. Ours were the only ones, and honestly, it was a pretty mellow quiet place. Maybe it was just because it was raining, and we were there around naptime. But, look how great it is?
