Out to Eat in the Summer of Covid-19

Meadow requested Black Sheep Pizza for dinner. Her favorite. We ordered for pickup and headed over there on our bikes.
The location closest to us had been closed ever since coronavirus.
We ate over nearby MCAD.
We were stoked to be eating our favorite pizza again.
We like to eat out but honestly I don't really miss going to a restaurant. I don't feel like I need to have someone serve me. We've been enjoying getting the food for takeout and having picnics instead.
It's not bad at all. I do still miss bars and breweries.
The kids chased butterflies.
We decided to get a treat at the Michoacana store in uptown.

Chelsea had left some presents for the kids. Meadow got fairy dust for the fire, a mystery Barbie and mermaid embroidery kit.

Papa, I can't see. I'm trying to drive the boat.
Dude loves his sandbox.
Ruth joined Blake for the weekend.
We spent another day outside. I'm also loving this swimsuit. Less sunscreen and no more burnt shoulders. I also hope it means less moles removed.
We took a swimming break for margaritas and chips…
