Sunday was Siclovia, a huge community fitness event in which a long segment of city street is cordoned off for cyclists, pedestrians, dancers, music, vendors. The projected attendance was 70,000! Like most of our fitness events we started with treats (chocolate and coconut creme doughnuts from Bakery Lorraine, some kind of Sriracha salad (for him) and sausage po'boy (for the hers) from The Monterey, deliciousssssss!)
It was a beautiful day -- about 80 degrees, so pleasant we were fooled and now have sunburns on our feet, hands, and necks. Luke is already rueful about this because he knows it means I will be even more SPF-zealous all summer long. (Are you wearing sunscreen? Do you need some sunscreen? Are C's feet covered??!!)

Best hair of the day.
Time for a funnel cake cupcake from WhipStitch Custom Cakes by a giant pig.

That evening Luke played the Block so we headed home in between events for a nap. I made rigatoni with meat sauce in the pressure cooker (review of the P.C. forthcoming) and when C awoke we drove out to catch the second set. And friends were there! Such a fun day.

It was a grand weekend and with a trip to St Louis and Fiesta events around the corner, springtime in SATX is going to be so fun!
