Andrew was thrilled to start the day with a run;) He wasn’t, but he tells me he is always happy that we do it so I just take that as he really does want to go. 4.5 miles and it is so nice to have a run where you don’t have to be back for anything (except for eating). We took walking breaks, sitting breaks, hanging out breaks and finished when we wanted to finish. It’s crazy how busy life gets with kiddos and life. It has been so nice this weekend to just focus on each other and donuts.
PS why is it always that the one time sleeping in is possible, my body will not let me yet the days I need to get up early take all sorts of convincing?
One of my favorite parts about the San Jose area—> You can find running trails EVERYWHERE. When I lived out here there was one within .4 miles of where I lived and every hotel I have stayed in since then (which is A LOT) has one within a few minutes too. It’s so nice to just be able jump on a trail anywhere and not see a car for a while.
From our run we went straight to Stan’s in Santa Clara for their donuts (THANK YOU for your recommendations… you guys are ALWAYS right). There was a little bit of a line but so worth the wait.
Pure heaven. They didn’t have any of the glazed but I think we will stop by again today for some of those:) The chocolate bar and old fashioned were my favorites. We are in this area often so I’m just really thankful to you guys for this new thing to look forward to each time we come… oh and their sprinkle donuts look amazing so I’m going to have to bring Brooke!
We counted donuts as our breakfast and then this for our lunch:) Bill’s Cafe is somewhere we love to go to eat (Andrew and I went twice last time we were here together).
I had the veggie scramble with hash browns as the base. They have the most friendly servers at this place… we are always happy when we leave.
After we ate we went back to the hotel to watch General Conference—> this is on today too! We have missed some of it but we will rewatch it online. Two times a year our church does this on a Saturday and Sunday (instead of church). They have amazing talks and I’m always so inspired/comforted by them.
Our next stop—> Giants game!
Andrew has a goal to visit every Major League Baseball stadium (and get a hat at each one). We checked off another one yesterday!
The Giants lost but it was a fun game and eventually we found our car again after the game;)
We were ready for dinner by 5 (my favorite time to eat dinner)… I wanted pasta and Andrew wanted anything other than pasta so we found a restaurant that had both.
We went to a place called Jack’s and my rigatoni pasta was SO good. It was even better than my current love of Noodles & Co;)
After dinner we walked around a mall for a little while and then went back to the hotel because I was exhausted. We had a New Girl marathon (I am hooked on that show right now) which was exciting!
And this picture made me so happy—> My brother sent it to me last night! He met Jessica on his flight (she recognized him from the blog) and she has the Columbus half marathon coming up! GOOD LUCK JESSICA and I better hear about how it goes!
We pick up Brooke later today and then we head back home!
What are your Sunday plans?
What day of the week is usually your favorite day to run?
Been to any MLB stadiums… Andrew would love to hear which ones!
