Climb On!

I’m not exactly sure how to begin! Since I started this blog back in 2011, I never took more than a week or so off from blogging. And now here I am, dusting off the keyboard after two months away. Stuff has happened! It’s been so long I probably forgot some of the stuff! I started my first job out of law school (which is the last thing I posted about back in March), Jason and I moved out of our apartment and in with my parents (yes, you read that right), and I even ran that half marathon that I was updating you on earlier this year! We have lots to catch up on and I will definitely fill you guys in on everything, but I figure today I’ll start small. We had a great Memorial Day and I would love to share it with you.

I wanted to do something together as a family, and I’ve had it in my head for a while that I wanted to try indoor rock climbing. So I grabbed my dad, sister, and hubster and we went for it!

I wanted to be able to climb without needing help from employees, so we went with the lesson option where they show you how to climb and belay properly. The class was tough! But once we got all the info we needed we were free to climb anywhere in the facility for the rest of the day. The place we went is HUGE–there were so many walls to choose from!

In the lesson they taught us commands to use with each other, and I’m a big fan of “Climb on!”

Once we got going we all had a lot of fun! And it’s a great workout, it’s kind of like a more interesting version of a pull-up machine! Now that we know how to do things on our own I definitely want to go back just to climb on another day.

When we got home I got started on the grill! I got options for everyone and tried to have some healthier alternatives to traditional grilling food. On the menu was my Grilled Corn and Vidalia Onion Salad:

Twice Baked Potatoes (experimenting with Cabot’s Tomato Basil Cheddar–YUM):

Sausages and hot dogs from a local butcher for the carnivores (The Spotted Trotter if my ATLiens want to know):

And veggie burgers for David and me:

I hope you all had a wonderful and peaceful weekend too! I’ll be back soon (really. no, really.) with a recap of my first half marathon!!!
