Architects of Air

After the Color Run The Hubby and I called up his folks and met at Tavern on The Square for lunch.  I was very surprised with how good the food was and how reasonable the prices were.  My Buddy Andy was in the kitchen and I should have known it would be great.

The Hubby and I had loaded up our bikes to go for a ride, but we were too full so we drove home instead.  We shared a bottle of Spumanti, and waited a little while then headed out for the Murphy's Law Ride.

We had gotten our bikes all ready to go before we loaded them and went to Tavern.  We put everything together, packed our bags, and hopped on the bikes only to discover my front tire had gone flat. Oh No! The tube had to be replaced.  We got back on our bikes and discovered his front tire had gone flat as well. Fortunately it didn't need a tube replacement.

We decide we are going to try bar hopping on bike.

All aired up we hopped back on, packed tools in case, and started to go. Neighbor #1 shouts and stops us for a moment. We hop back on and neighbor #2 shouts and stops us before we can go. Conversations completed, we set out on our way.

We managed to catch Architects of Air at the Riverfront Park on our ride.  Pretty neat Luminarium built by one guy. He now employs a staff. They tour around the world and inflate this strange bounce house style artwork.
“What motivates me to design is the fact that I continue to be struck by the beauty 
of light and colour found in the luminaria. These structures nurture an awareness
 of a pure phenomenon that gently cuts through everyday conditioned 
perceptions and awakens a sense of wonder in people”
- Alan Parkinson




The experience is surreal.

After AoA we continued our ride up to the Turner Dodge House at the end of the river trail. We were having loads of fun until the Hubby's chain broke!  Thankfully everything was back down hill from there. We walked our bikes to the big down hill and coasted to Sir Pizza.  We called his father to come pick us up.  We didn't get to go bar hopping, but we did at least have the chance to grab a beer while we awaited our rescue.
