Weekend in Review: The Good, The Bad and The Lovely!
Posted Jun 17 2013 6:30am
It was an awesome and incredibly busy weekend over here! Summer was in full effect with lots of summer like activities!
I got an 11 1/2 mile run in on Saturday with a 7:45 pace and I was beating myself up Saturday morning because it felt so much slower! I wanted to do 12 but I was just spent! This Sunday I am doing the Chicago Women’s 1/2 Marathon! I think I just over did it this week with running and Tabata Bootcamp! Must rest up for Sunday!
After a hospital visit to see my friend and her new baby girl we hit up a festival! I love festival hopping! So much fun!!
The Hubs and Sara are enjoying deep fried Oreos! Doesn’t get much better then that! Between the treat and the arm art, Sara was in HEAVEN!!
Sunday morning for Father’s Day we were up and out early to head the 60 miles to a Strawberry Festival for picking and fun! We had a blast!!
This was clearly the good and lovely part of our day!
The bad came on the way home! It took us just over an hour to get there Sunday morning! Coming back home was well over 3 hours! It was BEYOND brutal!! Thankfully Sara slept for the first hour but then last couple were just BAD! Traffic was horrible!! The city of Chicago on a beautiful Sunday and everyone was in their cars! Not sure what the deal was but when we finally got home after 3pm we were beyond thrilled!!!
I grilled dinner for my parents and we enjoyed a great dinner outside!
Some Sunday eats included a WHOLE lot of amazing strawberries, some very berry pie after dinner (which I ate too much of!!) and a couple of incredibly tasty beers which went down like water after our 3 hour ride home!
Despite the bad ride home on Sunday it was a great weekend and great Father’s Day!
Today is Sara’s first day of camp and we are in FULL summer mode over here!!
How did you celebrate Father’s Day?
