Had a lovely ride to the northern regions on Friday. I always forget about going North of the SLC. Friday night Richie and Renee cheffed up a TG part deux. 3 words: Cornish Game Hens (or is that 2 words?). It was great to see those kids and the dins was delish.
After opting out of racing cross in poopy air on Saturday am (downward dog instead), the hubs and I met up with the Yohnson-Gammons and the newest addition to their family: La Nocciolina (aka Hazel). On her almost-2-month-birthday, we did a lovely walk up the summer road at Alta.
La Nocciolina staying rested before the hike...
If we could only teach her how to say "bring out the laser" while bringing her pinky to her lower lip.
Papa Yohnson-Gammon assisting with the lambykins one-sie hiking outfit.
Mama Francescone carried her little one in her bjaby bjorn. The pair borrowed the hubs' down vest for some additional protection from the elements.
Stupid camera phone.
It was super beautiful out there. The skiing didn't look appealing but it was AWESOME to be up in the Wasatch. Definitely got me genuflecting to the Norse gods of flakes for more snow in the montagne.
We hit up Lone Star for some football sized burritos post-walk. Got some more hang time with Famiglia Yohnson-Gammon while La Nocciolina snoozed. It was a great day and the bambina was a superchamp/supercutey.
Because I'm REALLY TRYING to ride my bicycle again, I headed to 24 hours of fatness Saturday evening to ride indoors. I thought it would be empty but I walked in and just thought to myself "look at all these losers working out on a Saturday night." Then I walked by a mirror.
Wait a second...
Came home and the hubs and I watched the movie "Up" thanks to Erin's recommendation. It was cute. We then continued our The Office marathon since we can watch it thanks to Netflix on-demand. Why did we have to learn about that?
That show rules. The "whether Hillary Swank is hot" debate? Classic.
This morning the air quality didn't seem too bad so the hubs and I got out for a Giro di Draper. today. It was definitely pretty brrrrr around 4:30--but luckily we were able to obtain warmth and chais at the Beans and Brews in Holladay. It was close though.
Hope everyone's digestive systems are back on track. I say, bring on the Christmas cookies.
