Weekend Update: 7/28/13

I can’t believe it is Sunday night already!! How does a week of vacation fly by so quickly?? We had a great vacation at the Lake with lots of time in the boat, skiing, tubing, beach time, eating, and just hanging out. It was much needed and perfect. I also loved seeing my friends from CO and watching our kids playing together – seriously heart melting. Here are a few pics from the week.  . .



Watching my Aunt Mavis making homemade doughnuts. . .


Dinner out one night in Eau Claire while Mom watched the kids. . .



Doughnuts from the Bloomer Bakery. . 




Thanks again Peggy, Brian, Destiny, Jordyn and Finn for visiting!! We miss you lots already. Smile 




Cinnamon bread.  .. drool. . .


Bedtime reading with Aunt Jenny.



On our way home, we stopped to have lunch with Grandma and Grandpa Thompson.


We got back to Mankato this afternoon. I was quick to start a load of laundry, change into running clothes and hit the road with Luke for a nice 5 mile run.


Now, we are enjoying smoothies on the couch.. .


simple dinner, lots of fruit –> getting back on track after too many days of eating desserts, margaritas and doughnuts! I loved every minute and bite of it, but it feels nice to get back to normal too. Although, not super excited to get back to the normalcy of work tomorrow. . .oh well, vacation has to end sometime. And I have BODYPUMP class tomorrow night –> something to look forward to! Smile 

Please also tell me your normal life includes a baby in the kitchen sink? No, just me? Winking smile


How was your weekend???

  1. My normal life includes a dog in the bathroom closet; does that count? 😉

  2. Your weekend looked great! We were out at the lake on Saturday and it was CHILLY but we had so much fun playing games and sitting around the fire so it wasn’t a bust at all. Today was beautiful.
    Luke is seriously the cutest thing ever. Oh my goodness I smile every time I see his sweet little face!

  3. Homemade donuts?? How awesome! I bet that those were super duper tasty!

      It was insane how many desserts and treats we had.. . isn’t that what vacation is all about, though!! 😉

  5. Gotta agree with Stephanie. Wowza! That cinnamon bread looks delicious, and you can’t go wrong with homemade donuts! Sounds like you had a great vacation.

  9. What a lovely vacation hun! I love stuff like this…good times with close friends and family, enjoying tasty food and lots of water/outdoor time. Much simpler than trying to do a big getaway (which are fun too don’t get me wrong) and much more relaxing both while you’re away and when you get home! And homemade donuts?? Super jealous! Those must be awesome!

      My Aunt Mavis makes super delicious doughnuts! I can’t believe this was my first time ever having them. I guess she made them for my Mom a lot when they were growing up.

  10. It looks like you had an amazing vacation! That cinnamon bread looks amazing! Is it homemade?
