This weekend we wrapped up our vacation and made our way back to Cville in a couple of steps. I don’t have much to report other than some sad cell phone photos!
From Bald Head we drove to Hillsborough where Mazen and I spent the night so we could have a chance to hang out with Larbs and Matt, who were visiting for a wedding.
We all headed to downtown Durham for dinner on Friday night.
We tried to go to Bull City Burger, but it was too crowded and loud, so instead we went to Tyler’s Taproom. I had fried pickles, a beer, a salad and fish and chips that hit the spot. (A lot of this was shared!)
Saturday morning we woke up and ate oatmeal!
After digesting, we went running on Hillsborough’s new trail along the Eno River. We covered about 3 miles or so and had a good time talking.
After quick showers, we walked back downtown for salads at Weaver Street Market. Mine was piled high with vegetables (I feel like I have a lot of veggie eating to do this week!) and I shared a kombucha with Larbs.
Mazen and I road-tripped back to Cville where we were greeted by our BFFs Sarah and Sylvia! The kiddos played in the yard while I frantically unpacked from our trip and made dinner while chatting with Sarah. We eventually pulled 2 huge sheet pans of sweet potato fries out of the oven – mixed in with some parsnip fries! – and had them along with No Bull Burgers.
Sunday morning I made us all apple pancakes!
The Sayas went home, and Maze and I went grocery shopping for the week and tidied up a bit.
And then we headed out into the country to see Sarah’s new house! They have renovated a house but have yet to move in. The house came with a killer pool that was just prepped for human swimming!
We splashed around and enjoyed burgers on the grill and simple salads.
The rest of the weekend was spent catching up on house work and prepping for the week ahead. Happy Summah!
PS. My camera is fine!!! The lens, however, is not. Thankfully I have a backup. Can’t wait to get back to some happy snapping. Although I have to say only using my phone for a week was pretty awesome : )
