Weekend Recap

Friday: I made another new (to us) pizza for dinner (recipe tomorrow!). Super exciting. 

Saturday: We made the drive up to Sacramento so that E could see her dad for a few hours since he is deploying really soon. It’s a loooong drive, but it was worth it. We also visited a (military) friend of ours who was buried so recently they haven’t put his grave marker up yet. He was buried in the military section of the cemetery, near their Court of Honor. There’s something so sobering about being near a memorial like that, and we both got a little emotional. (I didn’t get any pictures from Saturday, but don't worry, I made up for it on Sunday.)

Sunday: was actually a really good day. I woke up way early, and carpooled up to the trail where the 10k was held with the two other girls I was running with. I was really nervous at the starting line, but I found a groove and actually finished at a faster pace than what I've been training at! It was exhilarating to  to cross that finish line. The only bummer was, J and E got lost on the way upt to meet me at the finish line and didn't get to see me cross. But we spent the rest of the day at the venue, which had a carousel, train rides, petting zoo, and all the fresh produce and locally made jams/salsa/wine you could want (the bountifulness of such things is probably my favorite part of being in California). It was a really cool place and we'll probably take her back out there sometime soon. Good wholesome family fun. :) And this may have been my first race, but I don't think it will be my last.

at the finish line!

what are you doing up there, peacock?

I'm the dork who took a picture of a watermill

enjoying the carousel :)

my dusty shoes and "bib" number (we didn't get real ones, which was also kind of a bummer).

What about you? Did you try anything new this weekend?
