Easter Weekend

We had lots of plans for Easter weekend and some weather that caused for some creative training.
Friday we pulled off another 4 hour plus trainer ride, not because we were concerned about the rain and the wind, but more the tremendous flying debris caused by the two. The streets were covered. And there was no chance in cycling over the floating bridges, as with just driving them you were bound to end up in the ocean. Johnna and Ryan opened up their home for the fun computrainer ride...not to mentioned opened all their windows to keep it cool (or better yet filter out the sweet smell we were creating).
Somewhere along the way I decided to play "wifey" and make some cupcakes for the holiday. Now this was a two day process because who really has two hours to bake in one day with all this training.

Next we were off to Vio Tribanali with mom and her boyfriend, Chris. We ate three pizzas and then some....and I was somehow still searching for more!
Post eat-fest we swung by our friend Elizabeth's 30th birthday party:
Sunday was great...we started our workouts a little later (a full 15 min) but it made for a nice little extra snooze time. Had a gorgeousand somewhat speedy (for me at least) run on Alki with more friends before the weather decided to strike again. Luckily we did not have to ride (as Mr. Mark did). Apparently there were headwinds in every direction and all rides were taking twice as long (well, maybe a little bit of an exaggeration, but that is what I was told :))
Then we were off to Easter dinner. The boys were stoked to try on their tuxes for the wedding, and were feeling handsome! (Yes, it is cheaper to buy kids tuxes than to rent them!)

By 8:30 pm Sunday I was in bed, whether it was a food coma, a sugar crash, or just plain tired, it was some well needed rest.

Until next weekend- have fun, train on and maybe even find a little time to bake!
