Weekend Recap

What a busy weekend! Tim and I started the weekend with dinner at our favorite all you can eat sushi place. It was wonderful. My favorite there is a sweet potato roll, but the Godzilla roll is a close second.

Then, we got up super early Saturday and set out for Eagle River, Wisconsin. We decided to take Napoleon because then we wouldn't need a sitter, and our hotel was pet friendly. It was a very long drive, but we all survived.

After the wedding, we had dinner together at a local haunt with my favorite niece. Chloe is also my only niece.

Then, we went to a family member's house for the after party. They live right on the lake and we could see Michigan from the shore. We went on an awesome boat ride and enjoyed chatting until I was ready to collapse into our hotel room bed.
Hotel, motel, Eagle River Days Inn .... 
This morning, Tim had breakfast with his family while I set out on an adventure. I wanted to get in 65 miles on my bike to cap off my half Ironman training before I start tapering. Except I forgot my pedal shoes and only wore flip flops, so I had to wear Tim's sneakers for the duration. I biked through rain and scorching sun before I finally reached the town Tim and I decided in advance to meet at. I also had a few technical issues my bike - my rear brakes were sticking and I lost a bolt on my water bottle cage, so it will be going to the bike shop before my next tri next weekend.

I loaded my bike back in the car next to Napoleon so we could drive the remaining four hours home.

I'm always happy to travel, especially to see family, but it makes me appreciate home even more. With 65 miles under my belt and a car to clean up before work tomorrow, I've got another eventful evening ahead of me!

Way to go getting those miles in on the bike! So disciplined! Eagle River sounds awesome right now...my husband's parents have a place in Tomahawk, WI not too far from there! It's like a whole different country up there!
