My weekend was full of things like sunshine, wine, exercise, friends, delicious meals, beer, and cute kids, but the most important event (by far) was the 2nd birthday of my favorite little guy, Jude Freitag:
Cari and JJ had a few of us over for grilled tacos, wine, and birthday boy kisses. Jude was mostly just concerned with his brand new wagon, but I did get to sneak in a few snuggles.
"try," he commands, as he attempts to feed me his ice cream
On Sunday, Matt and I had his son Jasper, and we met up with the Freitags once again at one of my favorite breweries, Pyramid, for lunch. I balanced my salad out with some cheesy pizza twists, you know, just to keep things even. After lunch, we headed to a neighborhood park so Jasper could play while we took in some sunshine. Here's my handsome man atop the monkey bars:
I took advantage of the weather and went for a run before we returned Jasper, and then rewarded myself with a delicious (Pinterest-inspired) meal: garlic & basil linguine with corn and arugula in a creamy sauce. I improvised the whole way through it and it turned out great! For my mouth, although maybe not so much for my hips . . .
And now I'm off to spend the day sick in bed with aches and chills and prayers that this does not evolve into a stomach virus.
I love you, Jude! Happiest birthday :)
