Memorial Day Weekend

Hey Guys!!

Sorry for the lack of posting. My weekend seemed to get filled up pretty quickly but it was very relaxing at the same time. Saturday we regraded the side of our yard:

We (aka my Dad) also built us some window wells. Doesn't it look nice?? Let me tell you though after shoveling dirt for ~6 hours I was SORE! It does feel nice to get that out of the way though!

I fueled up with bacon from my family store. I love heavily smoked bacon. I did end up skipping my long run on Saturday because we started on our yard at 8am. I definitely felt like eating first was a better choice than running 12 miles haha. 

Sunday I had a quick run in the morning and then we headed out to Frederick Meijer Gardens in GR. Picture overload in 3....2.....1:

Brett and I like to mimic statues....

I think I won that one....

Purple Allium

Pretty solid effort on my part...

Does anybody know what this pretty pink flower is?

I'm the bunny!

Am I round enough?

Look at that cut on my thumb, stupid yardwork!

We also found a maze and held our own immunity challenge. I won :) Watch out Survivor, I'm coming!

After the gardens we hit up a sushi place, it was only ok which was a bummer because it had excellent reviews.

On Monday we went over to Brett's sisters place and had a cookout. I made these strawberries:

I also wore a ridiculous hat to protect my skin from the sun. Us pale kids can't spend 3 full days in the sun haha, two is my limit. 

We had a great time just relaxing and cooking out.  

How was your weekend?
