We are just back from a quick trip down to the Sacramento area to visit with family, and spend time with my mom for Mother's day.
Originally I planned to go down on Friday evening, so we could meet up early Saturday to go kayaking with my sister, but that didn't happen! I realized on Friday as I was wrapping up work, that we would not be able to pack the car and get out at a reasonable time (it's a 2 hour drive), so I let my family know we were going to shoot for a Saturday morning arrival.
We got down to my sisters around 9am, good time on the road, and decided kayaking was not the best idea. It was quite windy, and we were looking for a pleasant outing, not a sufferfest! So we made plan B, which was go for a bike ride!
. Larry and I had brought our bikes down, and my sister had her bike and her husbands bike, so we got them ready, put them in the truck and headed out. It was me, Larry, my sister and her son. We had a nice ride around the lake, got to see a bald eagle nest, and lots of other bikes, lots of kayakers, and had a pleasant ride, probably over 11 miles worth.
That evening we went to pizza courtesy of my dad, and got to see my other nephew, his wife, my BIL and his brother came as well as my brother. We got outdoor seating, so that was nice, and had some delicious pizza and fun conversation. It had been over a year since I've been down to visit!
This morning Larry and I headed to my mom's apartment, Larry made his famous omelets and we enjoyed visit with my mom before heading back home.
All in all a nice weekend out of town!
