It’s the weekend in O-Town!

6 Aug

Its the weekend and it is finally hot again! I was starting to think that summer suddenly ended and reverted back to spring but no, summer came back and hopefully for a long time.
I hope you all will join me on a community bike ride of Ogden. It is a kid friendly event so bring the whole family, we are meeting at Rancho market on 26th and Quincy at 10am Saturday morning! I love biking in Ogden and there is so much beautiful stuff to see. Historic houses, beautiful gardens, the river and mountains; we are all so blessed!
