This weekend ended up being a full one. We got together with friends at Chef Geoff’s on Friday night. Saturday morning we put in a little run, then did our Safeway grocery shopping, and took our car to the YW camp fundraiser car wash. I think the girls were happy to see our clean, small, child-free car after a long line of minivans.
We had pizza for lunch, then headed to Great Falls Park with the Evanses.
The weather was ideal: seventy degrees and no humidity. We watched a kayaker go through the falls and hiked to the loch ruins. The park was busy but not insane like it was when I visited in November.
I enjoyed getting away for a bit and am definitely looking forward to summer. I need to find me some reasonable-length shorts.
We did our Trader Joe’s shopping (their cereal bars and produce are just so much better than Safeway’s) and watched two West Wing episodes before bed.
On Sunday, we had fruit smoothies and hashbrowns for breakfast while reading the paper. Jason had early meetings, so I walked to church again. When it’s not hot, I don’t mind the walk at all, though my hair does get a little frizzy. Primary was interesting; I think the lesson was called “Emma Smith Compiles Hymns Of The Restoration”, which doesn’t make for the same thrilling storytelling as most Book of Mormon stories. Jason saved the lesson. Unfortunately, he didn’t come with me to sharing time where the kids had a lot of energy.
After church, we had dinner at the Carter’s house. They made ham and
funeral holiday potatoes (hashbrown casserole, in Kentucky parlance) and green beans. We brought strawberry shortcakes. We played Ticket to Ride after dinner, which is a game I always forget that I like a lot (despite my last-place finish).
We went home and video chatted with our families and made Monday lunches. Sometimes the weekends go too fast.
