Weekend review 58: Hello June!

If someone asked you to describe Summer, just ask me what I did this weekend. Yoga by a lake, baseball, cabin and boating, finished with grilling out. That is Summer.

An old friend that I worked with over 10 years ago teaches yoga at a lake right by my apartment. I was able to get a couple of friends to join me as I attempted my first real yoga class. It was way better than I had anticipated and I'm planning on going to every class that I can this Summer. It was a fun experience to be outside and get our flow on. I learned I am not flexible at all.

The Milwaukee Brewers were in town so Mike and I went to the game expecting another big win from my beloved Twins. It was horrible! We lost and lost pretty bad too. The first pitch was a home run for the Brewers. Ugh, typical Twins. Once they start doing amazing things, they go back to their old ways.

Despite the loss, it was a gorgeous night for a baseball game. I even ran in to my cousin in law who was in town from Milwaukee! He was in Minneapolis for the series with a few buddies so we met up after the game for some drinks on a rooftop.

The next morning I packed a bag and headed up to the cabin. It was insanely windy which wasn't very fun since it limits what you can do. A couple neighbors came over for a few drinks and brought some kiddo's with who had some fun playing with the rocks on our shore.

One built rock statues and the other collected several bags of rocks and shells. I'm sure his parents will be real happy when they unpack his bag from the weekend.

Sunday, as usual, was a perfect day. I woke up to the smell of bacon and toast and Miley cuddling with me...wait, I take this all back. I was woken up at 6:30 AM by my mom who came in to my room 'Ali, put on your glasses and look in front of your car', Right as my mind flashed to a tree on top of my car, or a bear, she yells 'your car is fine, look outside!' There was a snapping turtle laying it's eggs right behind my car.

Once we let that excitement settle down, I went back to finish getting my beauty sleep, then I woke up to the smell of bacon and toast.  When we went outside, it was really starting to heat up and the sun was out. We convinced my dad to take a boat ride before going home, then we all just decided to spend the afternoon soaking up whatever sun we could get.

Mom and I worked on the shore some more, and dad worked on leveling out some of the dock that had settled in since we put it in.

This really was a perfect weekend and I can't wait for many more just like it!

  1. I've lost some flexibility myself. It's something we have to constantly work toward. I love yoga. :]
