Weekend Update: Days 310 &311

Well Cassi and I had an awesome jam packed weekend. I love that she doesn't work on Saturday or Sunday it makes the busy week worth it! We woke up Saturday morning and walked up to the 14 Carrot Cafe and had breakfast.

For Breakfast: My favorite pesto benedict. Poached eggs atop english muffins roasted bell peppers, spinach, and a slice of ham, covered in fresh pesto sauce. Served with fruit and some potatoes. It was fantastic.

Cassi and I walked home and cleaned the apartment up, did a load of laundry and got ready to go over to Claudia and C.A.'s house. We got there around 2 and sat out on her dock in the hot sun and chatted for a couple hours, we also scored Cassi on a series of backflips she did off the dock. Very impressive. Then we helped Claudia make a dinner she had planned for us and Nancy and her husband Pete drove over on their boat and joined us for dinner on the patio. It was a really nice dinner and Nancy brought dessert!

For Dinner: Steak on the grill, beautiful white sweet corn cooked on the grill and a tuscan salad with arugula, tomatoes, basil, and olives. It was all so good.

For Dessert: Nancy made a lemon tart and also brought mangoes that she served with just a lime wedge and it was really good!

As the evening winding down I played guitar and sang for a while and did my best to provide entertainment for the evening. It was a really fun day!

As for Sunday: another busy day!

For Breakfast: A bowl of cheerios and coffee.

Cassi had a soccer game and then Mom met us at the end of the game and we went to seward park on lake Washington so Cassi and Mom could practice swimming for the triathlon. I went with them and laid on the grass and waited for them. It made me a little sad that I couldn't be out there with them training for the triathlon. But it was fun to hang out and catch some rays. After their swim session we went and grabbed some lunch at Columbia City Ale House. We stumbled upon it while we were making our way back to our apartment and it was absolutely fantastic!

For Lunch: Blackened Salmon sandwich with tomato, lettuce, and a spicy dijon-ish mustard. It was the best sandwich I have ever had. All three of us loved what we ordered and already made tentative plans to go back there for happy hour, and bring dad, he would love this place.

Cassi and I got ready at home quick and went to Aunt Andi's house for dinner. We played with the kids and chatted with Andi and had a great dinner out on the patio.

For Dinner: I had corn on the cob, sugar snap peas, red potatoes and I had one spare rib. I have never had beef ribs, it was nice to try something new!

We finally made it back to our house after a long day of activities, we went straight home and to bed!
