So many photos! Where to start? How about pizza.Anthony’s aunt (or “auntie,” as they would say here) and uncle have a flaming pizza oven and threw a big old party for the family on Saturday night. I smiled extra big because there was even a pizza with anchovies Other amazing cooking appliances that we’ve enjoyed over the weekend: the pasta machine! We spent an afternoon making the perfect noodles with Anthony’s parents:Plus fresh pesto with basil from my mother-in-law’s garden. Yum.I was in charge of the roasted veggies! I don’t know what temperature I cooked them at since we are in Celsius land, but somehow it all worked 😉 (Side note: tomorrow my mother-in-law and I are going to attempt to sew a table runner together and I’ll have to measure it all up in metrics — yikes!)Table set and a Christmas tree still sparkling in the background. Plus an amazing cheese grater wheel on the table. I need one of those! We have an old school grater and I’ve sacrificed way too much of my fingers to it.On the fitness front, we’ve been staying busy! Yesterday we went on a “bush walk” atop Mt.Nebo. The Australian forest was full of critters — the cicadas were so loud at some points that you even had to cover your ears! And then THIS:My mom- and dad-in-law are both entomologists so they know all about the plants and animals. Personal tour guides!
Here’s the view from the top:On the running front, Anthony and I have been lacing up every day so far — though I can’t say we’re too speedy! Even when we get out before 7 a.m., the humidity wins. We’ve tacked on some boot camp-style workouts the past few days with our nephew, too.Fun fact: Anthony used to be a personal trainer. He doesn’t mess around when it comes to proper fitness technique.And we don’t mess around when it comes to vacation. Off to enjoy another warm summer night!
