Kate swam one event for her weekend swim meet on Friday evening. That night we had dinner at our house with Matt's medical school roommate Todd and his family. I haven't seen Todd since they graduated almost 20 years ago and have never met his wife and three boys. We made it an easy dinner with Il Vicino pizzas and salads. Kids had a great time running all over, and we loved checking out their RV.
Saturday morning Matt went to work, Kate & I went to her swim meet, and Jack slept in.
That afternoon we went to see The BFG. Loved it, but we already love the BFG in our house. It was Kate's favorite book when she first started reading, and I have fond memories of all the giggling over whizz popping! We had a family dinner that evening - grilled BBQ chicken, strawberry & avocado salad, roasted potatoes, and grilled yellow squash.
Sunday morning was much like Saturday morning... Matt went to work, Kate & I went to her swim meet, and Jack slept in!
Sunday late afternoon we headed up into the mountains with friends for a dinner picnic and tubing on the river. So much fun! The water was refreshingly perfect, the food was great (fried chicken cutlets, smoked salmon & veggie pasta salad, watermelon, and Texas cowboy cookies), and there was even small forest fire nearby which caused much excitement as the fire trucks raced past.
