naturally, a trip to fremont begs imitating the art that is scattered and tucked away throughout the streets. home to the fremont troll, the neighborhood also boasts sundry works of art, such as the large bronze statue of lenin below.
entertaining the traffic--lenin and mini-me
it was also carole's birthday, so we meandered over to zeek's pizza and stuffed ourselves full of their delicious pie. of course, no birthday would be complete without birthday confection, so back into fremont we went and visited 'simply desserts' for some cake by the slice. (i maintain 'simply desserts' is a misnomer, as their menu consisted entirely of various layer cakes and 2 types of cookie). misleading moniker aside, they do make fantastic cakes. fortunately, i still have some of the chocolate carmel layer cake to enjoy today for breakfast. thanks for having a birthday, carole!
