Weekend with Momma

Mom came down to KC this weekend to hang out and to run the Trolley Run with me.  Friday when Mom got to town, we ran a few miles on the trails near my home.  It was so pretty! We saw several deer, a muskrat, a few ducks and geese, tons of songbirds, and a grounhog!  We also saw some runners and bikers. 😛  It was a gorgeous evening for a run.

Saturday, we did lots of shopping and picked up our race packets for the Trolley Run.  We walked around the Overland Park downtown farmers market for a bit too, which was really cool. We also went to Pop Up Yoga which was at the downtown KC Library.

It was supposed to be on the rooftop, but it was raining on and off all morning, and started raining about 20 minutes before yoga was to begin! We moved right inside from the outdoor patio, and the doors were open, so a nice fresh breeze was moving through the room during yoga.

This was my second Pop Up Yoga class, and Mom’s first.  It was a really nice, slow, gentle class, and the rain outside was just a perfect backdrop.  I wrote a bit about Pop Up Yoga last time I went, when we did some pop up yoga on the Nelson Atkins Museum lawn.

After yoga, Mom and I did a bit more shopping and wandering around downtown KC, and ate an early dinner at Cinzetti’s, an Italian buffet! Who knew you could go to an Italian Buffet?!

These adorable little frog yoga figurines were at a greenhouse/ nursery that we stopped at.  So cute.  I wanted to buy them all!

Sunday, after the race, we hung around the house for a while, and then went to the mall with Amy and her little boy.  Mom even found an adorable Nebraska jersey for her kitty, Gordon! She bought it at Build-a-Bear Workshop! 

 We had an early dinner at Ted’s Cafe Escondido, which just recently opened up in Overland Park on 135th and Metcalf.  SO GOOD! I had eaten at Ted’s Cafe once before, in OKC, but it had been many years.  It was as good, or maybe even better than I remember!! Warm fresh tortillas, fresh salsa, homemade cheese dip, yum yum!  And after dinner, complimentary sopaipillas!

I did NOT want to get up and come to work today, especially because Mom was still at home with Jasper. It was a fantastic and fun filled weekend.  I had a lot of fun with Momma, racing, running, shopping, eating, and being!
