Friday was an actual day of rest for me! Our soccer team had a bye weekend so I had the opportunity to get one full day of not working out! Niko and I decided to go check out one of the new parks in the area with a few friends instead. We headed there right after dropping Devan off and stayed for several hours. The weather was chilly but the kids didn't seem to notice and we had a great time.

I was happy to see that they went for a more traditional style of park instead of the more new age ones that have been popping up lately. I honestly hadn't seen an actual SLIDE at a newly remodeled park for a long time! The wood they used was really nice and there is also a spray park area that will be fun in the summertime. I enjoyed watching the boys play- they sure are different than girls! The three of them are all in the same preschool class and are "best friends" according to Niko.

Today I was supposed to do some cross training. However...I worked 8 hours, went immediately to Devan's soccer game in Gig Harbor then went on a date night with my hubby for Valentine's day. A big thank you to my mom for coming over to watch the kiddos (and Devan's game) so we could have some adult time! So for my cross training we went to this cool little bar called the 1022 where I had some alcoholic beverages along with some fantastic cheese and bread. Then ate some more cheese and bread. Discussed how we could live on cheese, bread and fruit forever because we love it so much. Then headed to The Melting Pot and had dark chocolate fondu and discovered my new favorite drink in the whole world- a strawberry drop. Yum.
Tomorrow I need to do the spin bike for about 3 hours to burn off all of those calories but it was SO worth every bite. By the way...I don't have time to do spin bike for 3 hours tomorrow so I hope 15 minutes plus a 75 minute yoga session will do the trick. Happy Valentine's Day!!!
Happy Birthday to my friend Betsy (2/14)
A few of my favorite things about her:
1. She has a great smile and is one of the nicest people I know.
2. Her daughter is Devan's best friend and they always invite Devan to go with them to do fun things
3. She is not afraid to speak her mind and does so because she cares
4. She is a great defender at soccer even though she gets hit by the ball more than I do (which is nearly impossible btw!)
5. She is always there to help out when needed and can always be counted on
