Our weekend started off with Dave planning Friday night date night. I love it when he plans the date! We went to Chuy's for mexican food- never heard of it? Amazing! Then we went to the climbing gym and it was super fun! I usually don't dig the gym for date nights because we go all the time but I made some serious progress and I am stoked! We finished the night with delicious icecream from Sweet Dreams- they make all of their ice cream there and it is AMAZING!
Saturday we went on a 15ish mile bike ride along a beautiful bike path we found. It was gorgeous! The entire path is lined with trees so it is like you are in a tunnel of trees. I saw a pine tree and for a minute I thought I was in those Utah mountains that I love.
This was taken on Dave's old phone... doesn't it look like it is from the 80's? haha maybe it is just me.
After our bike ride, Dave wanted to go hit a buckle of golf balls at the University course. He is just starting to love golf. He is amazingly good at it!
When I came home and checked the mail, I had received giveaway number 2! Wahoo! It was a fabulous handmade key chain of a photo of Dave and I at our wedding. And a $10 starbucks card... hot chocolate here I come!
Thank you Jen, I love it!
