Friday was not the relaxing evening that it usually is. Since we had a fairly busy weekend planned, I had to get a jump start on all my chores so laundry, cleaning and running errands was what my night consisted of. I was exhausted when I went to bed at 11pm.
Saturday I had a bit of a sleep in. When Audrey went down for her morning nap, I squeezed in a sweaty Jillian Michael's workout.
It was a gorgeous day, so we headed to the Zoo with hubby's parents in the afternoon. Audrey enjoyed running around and checking out all the animals. Getting the Zoo pass is the best decision ever!
I want one!
Remnants of lunch were beneath him- yuck!

weather as the rest of us were!
That evening the grandparents babysat while hubby and I went to our friends' house for dinner. It was a nice adult evening. We had uninterrupted conversation and we didn't have to rush home after dinner to put Audrey to bed. After dinner, we went out for drinks at lounge as I had mentioned earlier that since having a baby, I miss going out to pubs and lounges. It took awhile for us to find a place that didn't have a long line up and when we finally did, the service was awful. Made me realize that I am actually not missing out on anything! The late-night-scene really isn't my thing anymore!
Sunday morning we went for our group run. Yay- we finally made one! I ran with Amanda part of the way, whom I haven't seen in ages. It was great to catch up with her and talk about our upcoming trip to Vancouver for the SeaWheeze Half Marathon in August.
Finally we had some decent weather but I'm not used to it so I wasn't quite prepared on this run. I didn't bring enough water (only 2 bottles instead of 4) and I probably could have worn shorts and/or a tank top instead of capris and a t-shirt. I was warm! My face was a nice shade of red when I was done. I ran 10K- the first 5K were great since I was running with Amanda, but I lost steam in the last 5K and had to walk more than I would have liked. I also didn't eat much breakfast before the run, and I was dehydrated. It wasn't an awful run but not the kind of run that you want to have 3 weeks before a race.
The rest of the day was spent cleaning, grocery shopping, more laundry (no, it never ends), attempting numerous times to get Audrey to nap and trying to get ready for the week.
The neighbors' little girl came over to "play" with Audrey for a bit- that was pretty cute!

The in-laws came over for dinner- BBQ ribs! Yum! Love BBQ season!
The weather is looking pretty good this week so I'm pretty happy about that!
