{Weekend Wrap-Up} Summer Bucket List

We had one of those weekends that I wish I could have recorded on video so I could watch it over and over again. It was a sweet time together as a family. We simply don’t have enough of these weekends! That is soon to change.


On Saturday morning we took our time getting ready and loaded up the car with our bikes and a borrowed bike trailer for RJ! We have been meaning to take RJ for a bike ride for a little while now, but we wanted to wait till she was stable enough and could fit into a helmet.


This girl loved the bike ride! She was all about it. I loved seeing her big smile while we covered the road. We rode around town and then stopped at the Olive Avenue Market for a little brunch. Their brunch is to die for! I enjoyed the breakfast tacos (RJ helped me) and hubby got the biscuits and gravy!


Can you believe RJ turned 9 months on Saturday?! Crazy right?! She is seriously the biggest JOY in our lives! We just can’t get enough of her sweet smiles.


We came home, spruced up, kissed baby girl goodbye, and headed out for a fun date night! These nights mean the world to us and we know how blessed we are to have such great friends take care of RJ for us while we spend some quality time together.


We finally checked out the Salted Pig in Riverside. Now don’t get me wrong, I love salads and clean eats, but be advised that is not what we enjoyed at The Salted Pig! When we first arrived, we took a seat at a bar and enjoyed some drinks and appetizers.


We decided to order some of the Filthy Fries and a flight of their most popular draft beers. The Filthy Fries were thin and covered in beer cheese, roasted garlic, and some kind of amazing seasoning!


We were called for our table, but we decided to stay seated at the bar because we liked our bartender and the ambiance was a lot of fun. The fries were pretty filling, so we decided to just split one of their famous M.S.G Burgers,  mushroom, sage, and gouda.

All I have to say is this may be the best burger I have ever ever ever had in my life!


It was such a great dining experience, we can’t wait to go back. After dinner, we swung by the theater next door to see what was going on. There was a Doors cover band playing so we stuck around and listened to a few songs just for kicks.


Then we reverted back to our college dating days and headed to a local theme park that has batting cages. I mean don’t all the best date nights end with a little friendly competition?!




The next morning I rose pretty early for an all day TRX Suspension Training. I have been looking forward to this for weeks!


I have never been to a TRX class, but have always wanted to go. I also have always wanted to learn how to us the TRX trainer so I can use it in my personal training sessions. I loved everything about the course and I really can’t wait to incorporate it into my own training. Say hello to the newest set of TRX trainers!


Seriously, it was one of the best weekends ever! It gave us a glance of what the summer has in store for us. I am really looking forward to this summer with our little family so much so that I created a summer bucket list!!! I know we may not be able to do everything on the list, but it was fun to create a list of fun things to do over our first summer with RJ!


Summer is my favorite season of the year and I know with a blink of an eye it will be Christmas! I am going to savor every memory of our first summer together as the three of us; it’s gonna be epic!

Question: What would be on your summer bucket list?
