Weekend Review 21

These posts are starting to repeat themselves. Friday Kari and I headed up to the cabin. I was able to leave a bit early so we got up just after 5:00 and headed to Jed's for dinner. We started with fried pickles and I proceeded on the fried food train and got chicken strips, mozz sticks and cheese curds. I have a serious weakness for fried food. Especially fried cheese.

After dinner we took advantage of the perfect weather and took a sunset boat cruise around the lake.

Saturday we were all up and moving before 7:00 am. That's our fam though. I laced up my tennies and hit the pavement for a three mile run. I figured if I was going to eat fried pickles, chicken and two kinds of cheese, I needed to get in a run.

We had a lovely breakfast and mimosas on the deck where Kari had me do the Pure Barre workout warm up. There's a lot of similarities between Pure Barre and PiYo. It didn't take long after breakfast for us to throw on our suits and hit the Island Oasis for some quality floating/sun time.

We spent the weekend celebrating Dads birthday and in honor of that, mom and dad decided to take advantage of the amazing weather and not do any work around the cabin on Saturday. We took a boat cruise and had a lunch time pit stop at the sand bar where Kari and I continued to show off our PiYo and barre skills. All morning we were watching the clouds part and go around the lake but we got caught in a brief downpour while playing at the sand bar. It was so much fun! The rain was warm and refreshing. Not a single boat packed up and left. Everyone stayed in the water tossing footballs, floating and just having a grand ol time!

It was one of the first times all Summer that we were able to enjoy a couple hours out there, playing in the water and just relaxing with warm temps and just the slightest breeze. There were no friends or family to entertain, to one we had to get back to the cabin for. I would describe Saturday as simply perfect.

For dinner I grilled up some delicious filet mignon and we had mashed potatoes and corn on the cob, followed by a fire at the neighbors. There was a chance they would be coming back to have a fire, but no such luck so we just enjoyed their fire pit, hoping it would feel like they were there.

Sunday was dad's official birthday and we spent it at one of his favorite restaurants, Chino Latino. Their Sunday happy hour is the best. I suggest the spicy edemame and the poblano fundito to start. And a drink with a plastic animal of some sort.

Just as we were wrapping up, they surprised dad with a fun little dessert.

Happy Birthday Dad!
