We finally got a beautiful sunny day after a week straight of rainy weather. I soaked it up.
I started my Saturday (again) with a 4:30 wake up and a 5:15 start to my bike ride with Suzanne. There are about 1 million things I love about my friend Suzanne. Three of those things are that she shows up at 5:15 on a Saturday morning as bright and cheerful as the summer sun itself; on our bike ride, she shouts things like: "your legs look so long and strong from back here!"; we spent at least 20 minutes of our ride swapping green smoothie and protein shake recipes. You just can't beat her.

|By 8:30 I was showered and ready for a day with my kiddos. We packed up and had a spontaneous trip and picnic lunch at Echo Lake. The kids played happily in the water while I stretched and rested on the beach. On our way home at 1:30, I drank a much-needed large, strong coffee since I'd had such an early start. |
The kids played checkers on the iPad and I sang along to the new Brandi Carlile.
|Totally unrelated, but these are some beautiful peonies on my table.|
Happy summer weekend to everyone!
