Summer Fun

After a busy two weeks at work, it was great to have a fun-filled weekend!

It all started on Friday afternoon when Ben flew back into town from a 2-week business trip. We met up and enjoyed a long, leisurely lunch by the creek at Novo. It was a nice warm day in SLO and the light breeze made it perfect to be outside, but a little too warm to convince me to order their famous salmon bisque (I had the yummy BLTA instead).

Then on Saturday, we had a lazy day around the house followed by errands and a date! We enjoyed Firestones for dinner, stocked up on snacks from 7-11, and headed over to the Sunset Drive-In to enjoy The Bourne Ultimatum and The Simpsons Movie. We both really liked Bourne and I enjoyed the fact that the Simpsons was free (oh the joy of a double-feature).

Even though we had a late night on Saturday, it was an early morning for us on Sunday to drive 2 hours north to Carmel to meet up with Ben's family. It was a wonderful afternoon on the beach complete with perfect warm weather, great company, and a delicious picnic. The only downside of the day (actually the whole weekend) was the really bad sunburn I got on both lower legs (opps, forgot the sunscreen there) - the fun summer sacrifice!
