Summertime Weekends

Happy Sunday! I hope you are finding time to relax and enjoy the company of those around you. I had an excellent weekend visiting my mom in Wisconsin. After my first week back at work, I loved having time to relax and sleep in.

Yesterday, we woke up early and headed to the farmer’s market. Summer mornings are a great time for iced coffee, so we swung through McDonalds drive through quickly and I grabbed an unsweetened iced coffee. Perfect (caffeinated) start to the day!

ImageOf course a Wisconsin farmer’s market wouldn’t be complete without a cheese curd stand. We opted out of these but chuckled at the sight. 🙂

We ended up with an excellent organic raspberry spread and rhubarb. We tried the raspberry spread on english muffins today and they were outstanding. Last night I turned the rhubarb into rhubarb crisp and brought it my grandparent’s house. Great finds!

ImageAfter the farmer’s market, we decided to take a walk on the city’s bike trail. We mapped out a 4 mile route and took off! The weather was partly cloudy, but we enjoyed the conversation and sights along the way.


This morning, my mom, grandparents and myself went to 8:30am church together. The rest of today will be spent mostly driving back to Iowa for another week of work!

Have a relaxing rest of your day!
