Yesterday was easily one of my favorite days of summer so far. It started with a glorious 10K road race followed by a very relaxing afternoon, which involved lounging by the pool, lots laughter, and plenty of good eatin’.
There were also really adorable smoochy-face dogs to entertain me!
After the race, Mal and I headed back to Elizabeth‘s parents’ house to hang out by the pool and grill out. We brought Murphy with us so he could play with their dog, Clark, who you might remember from this post and video.
Murphy and Clark are like two peas in a pod. There’s a hardcore doggie bromance growing between them.
Nick and Elizabeth cooked up a delicious lunch for us, complete with cheeseburgers, grilled chicken and shrimp, pasta salad (regular and gluten-free), and an amazing heirloom tomato salad that I am now obsessed with.
The tomato salad is just chopped heirloom tomatoes with olive oil, gorgonzola cheese crumbles, and a little salt and pepper. It was so simple, yet soooo delicious. I can’t wait to recreate it at home.
I filled my plate with a cheeseburger, grilled shrimp, pasta salad, and lots of tomato salad.
After lunch, the dogs eventually tired out and went inside to the AC to cool off. (Check out Clark’s lip again the glass! LOL!)
Murphy was so pooped!
What a day! I was actually pretty tired myself and went to bed at 8:30 PM! Good times!
