Happy President’s Day! I hope everyone enjoyed their 3-day weekend as much as I did 🙂 Here are some of my highlights.
Valentine’s Day! Abe had to work from 1-10 PM but he still managed to surprise me when I got home from work – he decorated the room! Our traditional V-day gift is a list of things we like about each other, presented in different ways. One year was on a box of chocolates, another in a Funyun bag and this year, on balloons! Excuse the mess of the room!!Scooby wanted the balloons soooooooo baaaaad
I had a riding lesson in the morning and Abe came to watch before he had to go back to work. He took some very nice pictures of me and Preston 🙂 Scooby too, of course…
Since we couldn’t “celebrate” Valentine’s Day on Friday, we decided to do a brunch Sunday morning (before Abe had to go to work again). The restaurant we had originally planned to go to said they no longer served brunch when I called to make reservations, so we went to an old favorite – Putah Creek Cafe 🙂 Abe got the Chicken Fried Steak (splurge!!) and I got a bacon, avocado and cheese omelet! Better believe that kept us full all day.. phew! But we definitely saved room for… COOKIES! GI-normous and amazing.
I woke up early and ran out to the barn to ride Preston. I didn’t bring Scooby and no one happened to be out at 8:30 am, so it was just me and the Preston pie = the best.
I came home, ate some breakfast and then Abe, Scooby and I were off for a hike! We went to American River Canyon Overlook Park in Auburn, CA and it was beautiful! We also tried for a couple timer “family photos” which didn’t come out so well… Oh well! haha
We stopped for some lunch on the way home at Little Belgium Deli. We got a Rueben and The Gobbler (turkey with cranberry sauce!) and split them.And then got caught in horrendous traffic on the way home. Everyone was coming home from the snow!! But we had a beautiful sunset to guide us 🙂
That’s it! There’s our weekend, and what a great one it was 😀
What did you do for the 3-day weekend??
