The Highlights Reel

Oh boy, did we have an action packed weekend!  And we were blessed with a gorgeous one!

Jodus’ mother came up from Arizona to visit her favorite dog daughter-in-law oldest son. And it just so happened to be the same exact weekend that she came up last year! And we had to follow in the same footsteps as last year, by hitting up the county fair!

We wandered around visiting the animals, watching the police K-9 show, and eating copious amounts of deep fried food.

{Deep fried PBJ is not as bomb as it sounds.}

And then losing our shit on a few rides.

Saturday, we celebrated my MIL’s birthday (that was last month) by taking her to enjoy Bainbridge Island for the day.

We started with a hike through Gazzum Lake down to Close Beach. It was short (3.4 mi round trip) but steep and the view was the opposing view from the neighborhood we walk in in Bremerton!

Lunch, we dined at Hitchcock – the same restaurant we went to on our anniversary.

We all split 3 personal pizzas and they were divine – the bacon & egg one was my favorite! The crusts were thin, wood-fired perfection.

We followed up lunch with wine tasting! Bainbridge Island has 8 wineries and we visited 3 tasting rooms that represented 5 of the wineries.

We had a really good time but weren’t very impressed with any of the wines, really. Oh well, you win some you lose some.

Sunday, after I pounded out an 8 mile run with a friend, we were treated to lunch at The Boat Shed.

Food coma ensued.

We sent her off on the ferry to visit her brother and she heads home tomorrow. It was a short visit but it’s always good to see her! And Pippin loves it too.
