Weekend Update: 8/3/14

Hey! Happy Monday. ..

We went to the Lake this weekend. . . it was a quick trip because we didn’t get there until late Friday night, but still lots of fun!

Here’s the recap. . .

I started my Friday morning SUPER early for a 5am run with some ladies from the YMCA. 8.5 miles before breakfast = awesome.


And it’s official, my husband is a spark addict. ..


Smoothie date at Caribou.


We spent the rest of the day getting ready to go, running errands, napping and finally watching The Bachelorette finale.. . btw – what???? craziness.

And because I am crazy, after running 8.5 miles in the morning, I headed out to teach the Friday night BODYPUMP class at the YMCA before we hit the road. My secret weapon was O2 gold. Seriously, that stuff is amazing.


We got to the Lake late on Friday night and woke up to beautiful weather on Saturday. Spark was enjoyed while soaking in the view.


And then we headed out to the local county fair.

Petting the cows and bunnies were the highlights. . .


4 mile run with my favorite running partner.


Then, the parade. Luke loved it. Candy + trucks + people = great entertainment


Back to the fair for a bit.

Mom and I rode the Ferris wheel.


And then it was back to the Lake for dinner and then we hit the road for the 3 hour drive back home.


We got back pretty late, so it wasย quick toย bed and then off to work again this morning.

But I am already looking forward to going back again in 2 weeks!

And because it was pretty marvelous, I am linking up with Katie for Marvelous in my Monday!

How was your weekend??

      They are just the perfect age for it right now – too little for the expensive rides, but big enough to like the animals and other stuff!

  3. Way to go! Sweaty workouts make relaxing later on even that much more rewarding.

    Sounds like a fun weekend. Why is it getting up at 5am for a run is so much easier than getting up at that time for work? Haha

  7. Wow. Just reading that all made me tired! But it sounded so fun! ๐Ÿ™‚
