602 – Taco Fest


Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode, we:

Ate a lot of food
We attended Taco Fest with our friends Shelley and Adam. The event was made up of local restaurants serving tacos. Later in the week, we actually didn’t eat local, we ate salads (!) at BW3.

Chad spied on birds
Chad put together a bird house with an infrared camera in it. Now, a mama bird moved in and we have eggs!

Ruth started biking
Ruth got a new helmet from Nutcase Helmets and started riding every morning for 20+ minutes.

And then there was music
Ruth went to see the 30th Anniversary tour of The Posies live at Summerfest. Jon and Ken were rockin’ out for this show and were having a blast.

510 – Outdoor Quota


Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode, we:

Returned to The Hale House for date night
We were inspired by some new additions to the menu so we returned to The Hale House. The items we chose were unfortunately only meh. But we’re up for going back and trying some of the other new items.

Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur

Captured kittens
Kitten fest continued! We put a trap out for the four kittens under the deck and Tuesday night we got the first one. Luckily, we managed to catch the remaining three cats. They all went to MADACC and we know the first kitty has already been adopted.

Chose salads over sandwiches for lunches
We went to Blue Bat Kitchen and Tequilaria for lunch Friday. We had really delicious house margaritas. Ruth had a Korean Beef bowl and Chad tried the Cubano bowl. Earlier in the week, Chad chose a couple deconstructed sandwiches in salad form.

Chad goes bike riding

Were outdoors all day Saturday
It was 90 degrees outside and Ruth planted her flowers and got the lanai set up. Chad went bike riding with his Little Brother. They biked nearly 12 miles in the heat. Then, we went to see our nephew Grant play in a baseball tournament. All that time outside filled Chad’s “outdoor quota” for the year.
