Weekend Update: 8/18/13

Happy Sunday night. . . I think. . . How is it Sunday again? And tomorrow is Monday, seriously? Oh well, we had a great weekend over here again. . .

We headed to the water park on Friday with Brynn and Sarah. It was on my summer to-do list! Luke loved the turtle water slide. Smile 


Someone was super tuckered out after all the playing. . .


Then, a 3 hour drive up to the Lake. . .

And a Friday night Fish Fry. + my family. Perfection.



12 mile run on Saturday. Nice weather. A little hot when there wasn’t any shade – which was most of mile 7. Thankfully, Scott and Dad met up with me at mile 8 and ran the last 4 and brought me water.


I refueled with Texas Chocolate Cake –> one of my favs.


And then beach time.


And boat time.


And more cake for Mom’s birthday.


And this morning, we had super easy omelets for breakfast <—have you ever had these? They are the easiest thing ever and so delicious.

Followed by some digesting.


Then, a nice 3 mile run.

Drive back to the cities.

Lunch with Grandma and Grandpa Thompson.


Play time with friends. And drive back to Mankato. Thanks for the cookies Jennie! Smile 


Dinner, laundry and some couch time at home.

And now I am off to join Abby in bed. Smile 

Hope you had a great weekend too. What were you up to??

  1. I want to come spend weekends with you guys 😉 They always look so full of family time, activity, and rest/relaxation! I’m glad you had so much fun at the water park and lake! How awesome is that that your dad and Scott met up with you for the last bit of your run. I have a 20 miler on Saturday morning super early that my mum said she’d come bike with me, which I am pretty excited for. That should make it go a little faster 😛

      Having someone meet you for a run or bike along is the best! It makes the miles go by so my faster. 🙂 Good luck on your 20 miler!!

  2. That fish fry photo SO reminds me of my dad—flashing the fish right in front of the camera. He’s always doing something goofy to make us laugh.
    Great job on the 12 miles! Goodness girl you are killing it!
    You’re entire weekend looked just fabulous. Happy Monday! xoxo

      My Dad is always like that too! You should have seen the 5 other pics that I took and the crazy stuff that he was doing. Too funny!!

    Your super easy omelets look wonderful! I am curious about the method…Is it okay to boil food in plastic baggies (for health reasons)? We hear so much about using/not using plastic containers and plactic wrap in microwave ovens, and I wondered if the boiling water would have any affect on the food inside the plastic. I would love to have you share your thoughts on this. Thanks!

      I use thicker plastic bags and while I can’t comment on if they have any affect on the food, the bag is intact after we are done using it and doesn’t appear to be changed at all. But that’s just my personal opinion.

  4. My weekend consisted of Ragnar Friday to Saturday and then Sunday I helped my husbands brother and sister in law move. I was so sore from Ragnar, it’s pretty comical to watch me waddle down steps.

    Your cabin looks amazing!! Great Lake and beach.

  7. Looks like a great weekend! I haven’t had fried fish in forever, so that looked amazing! I got in a nice run this weekend too, though it was no 12 miles!

      It was a super nice weekend! And I was really happy to get 12 miles done too. Always nice to cross another long run off the list. 🙂
