Bike Riding, Family, Friends, & Cantaloupe Juice

This weekend has been filled with family, good friends, bike riding to and from 
everywhere we went, and cantaloupe juice. Quite the mix, but they all go great together!

*Friday with Casey & Evelyn at Latte Da for hot chocolate, then a trip to
the park, and end at Goodie's market for candy at 10am. Who said
Auntie can't spoil the kids?

*Mike and Al signed papers...they are official home owners! We're so
excited for their big move and beautiful home.

*Tried out Lapellah and spent hours chatting with Ty's parents.
Great food, a bit on the slower side for the service.

*Biked all weekend so far (well except our drive to Battle Ground...
sorry, but that's a bit too far for me after all the other riding!)

*Spent nearly 4 hours with our friends Nick, Pennie, and their son Turner after
having a giant paleo brunch...banana pancakes, cubed sweet potatoes, fruit,
peppered bacon, scrambled eggs, and cantaloupe juice.
We are so blessed to have them in our lives!

*More bike riding to meet my parents in DT Vancouver, then spent hours
with them over some beer and sweet potato and beet chips. Nothing
beats having your parents come over to lay out on the couches
like it's their own home and chill!

*And now you're thinking, lady seriously get to the point on the juice here.
Well we made 3 different cantaloupe juices to test out and had Nick
and Pennie try them. We each had a love for different ones, so
let's just say they all passed the taste test!

 It's only been half a weekend and we can say 
that we've been able to share all that time with people we love!

Cantaloupe Carrot Ginger Juice
1/2 cantaloupe
2 carrots
1 good sized chunk of ginger

Cantaloupe Romaine Lettuce
1/2 cantaloupe
2 large romaine lettuce leaves

Cantaloupe Orange Cinnamon
1/2 cantaloupe
1 orange, peeled
dash cinnamon

PS-we made each of these with our Blendtec. They sell them at Costco every so often and they are
so worth their value. When you juice with this blender you get all the fruit versus a regular juicer
that sheds all but the juice. The thing even makes soups, ice cream, batters, flours, etc.

Cheers to all of those we love spending our time with...and our new love for cantaloupe juice too!
