home made pizza and a bike ride

my little sister came to visit this weekend. it's nice being closer to home so that we can visit a bit easier and more frequently. As wonderful as it was to be in a foreign country you do miss out on a lot of family stuff.

jess and ryan came over on saturday night for a homemade pizza night with joe and I. Since I moved up here Joe and I have been cooking a lot together. He's a really wonderful cook, an especially wonderful Italian cook being as that is his ancestral background. We recently discovered whole wheat pizza dough sold at Trader Joe's and so have been making our own pizzas. I showed Jess a picture of our previous pizzas and she mentioned that she would like to partake in pizza making--so her trip up here seemed like the perfect opportunity! Jess and Ryan made one pizza and Joe and I made another. They were delicious and it was fun to hang out and cook together!

sunday morning-afternoon joe and i did our first bike ride after having the bikes fixed up. we drove out to the golden gate and parked in a lot just north of the gate. we started off on a path out towards the marin headlands. we ended up at a place called rodeo beach where lots of people were sunbathing and surfing and just playing in the good weather. after some steep hill climbing we turned around and headed further north to the cute little town of sausalito. lots of beautiful views of the bay, the port in sausalito, the bay bridge, the golden gate and tons of cute bakeries, coffee shops and artsy shops along the way.
