Post-weekend catchup

The weekend was really good, much quieter than the past couple of weekends! We started out with a run on Saturday morning in the hot, humid air. We just ran around the neighbourhood (did 6.5 miles) and held a pretty good pace. Followed that up with home cooked crepe style pancakes with fresh cherries and bananas... yum! Saturday afternoon we went and bought a few bits and pieces for the house and then we cooked a very yummy 3-course meal on Saturday night. We made roasted tomato soup, followed by scallops, then chocolate fudge with fresh Richter raspberries for dessert. It was delicious! We just pottered around most of the evening, cooking, chatting, building our new bookcase, talking to Mum & Dad. Sunday morning we got up early and met the Rogue group for a bike ride. Rode 360 from the Arboretum, up Bee Caves to 71 and back. Total distance was 32 miles and kept a fairly solid pace. Had breakfast at Uno's afterwards - the usual ham, egg and cheese panini that we used to have after our Saturday morning swim sessions last year. We're not normally up that way anymore so it was fun to pop in there for breakfast! Later that day we met up with Gordon's work colleagues at Emma Long Park for a late afternoon picnic. It was lovely and cool and breezy underneath the Pecan trees, and we had some tasty BBQ from County Line and sat around relaxing. It was a really fun weekend.
