Busy Saturday

Last Saturday was a very busy one for Neil and I! We started the day off by running a race in Salt Lake. We ran in a charity race for Operation 61, which is an organization that works to stop human trafficking. The race was basically running laps around Liberty Park. Neil ran the 5k, while I ran the 10k with my friend Sly. The weather was a little cold, but felt pretty good once we started running! After the race, we jumped right in the car and drove to Orem to watch some State Cup soccer. Sly and I are coaching a girls team starting in June, so we wanted to see them in action before tryouts. After watching the girls dominate the team they played (I think they won 8-0 or something like that), we stopped by In-N-Out Burger in Orem and ate some of the calories we burned that morning! After driving back home, Neil and I cleaned ourselves up and I got some yummy dessert ready (for the recipe for Chocolate Cheesecake, click here). We got back in the car and drove to Dave & Carly's house, where we met all of Neil's siblings so we could go out to dinner at the Mandarin. Dinner was delicious as usual and it was so fun to be able to hang out with the family! We ended the night by having a quick planning meeting for those of us who are going to Canada this summer, and Neil also received a pretty cool present from Dave & Carly. He was OVERJOYED to receive a soft-serve ice cream maker- we made sure to stop by the store on the way home to get all the ingredients so he could make his ice cream. What a fun and unbelievably busy day!
