Family Run Date + Lunch

Hi guys!  We had a low key weekend over here - I didn't take many photos because we didn't do too much of note, which felt nice after last weekend's busy travel!  The main highlight was a fun family run date yesterday.  (I swear Riese had more fun than it looks in this photo!)
