The End of the Long Weekend

On Friday afternoon we arrived in Saskatoon.  From Friday afternoon until Monday afternoon, we basically spent every waking minute with my mom.  We went back to our hotel at night to sleep, and ordered in to the room.  We're pretty wiped, and are looking forward to relaxing a bit in our backyard this week.

Last night we were back in Regina, and Christopher's parents had us over for dinner.   We started with snacks in the backyard, while catching up.  A beautiful leg of lamb was cooking on the BBQ while we visited.

We moved inside for dinner.  With the lamb, we had gravy, potatoes, Caesar salad, and corn on the cob.

Everything was soooooo good!  Both of Christopher's parents are really great cooks.

To top it all off, we had berry pie for dessert.

It was a wonderful way to end off our long weekend.

Was it a long weekend for you?  How did you spend the weekend?

Aw I'm glad you got to spend a lot of time visiting your mom but I can see why you're tired. I had a friend in town this weekend and had an amazing time touring her around but was definitely exhausted at the end of each day. What an amazing meal you had to end your long weekend, looks so yummy!

I am glad you got to spend a lot of time with your mom. I hope she is doing better and that they know what caused her symptoms! I am glad that you guys came back to a delicious meal prepared by Christopher's parents! I am sure you were ready for some home cooked food after a weekend away! The food all looks amazing!

We didn't have a long weekend here but it was a great weekend. I spent a lot of time outdoors as the weather was gorgeous.
