You’ve Got Turkey Legs

It was another beautiful weekend to spend outside!

With temps in the 70s, we wandered downtown on Saturday to Riverfest, an annual street fair held in Wilmington by the Cape Fear River. Our #1 reason for attending: turkey legs.

Ryan and our friend, Shirin, had their hearts set on them. Dream come true!

We walked around for a while and got our fill of local vendors, fair food and people watching. Afterwards, we had a delicious dinner at one of our favorites, Sweet & Savory, and caught up on The Office and Parks & Rec from last week on Netflix.

It was a little more overcast and windy on Sunday, but still felt great to enjoy some time outdoors. After a quick lunch, we headed out to a community park about 15 minutes away in Castle Hayne to play frisbee and try this guy out:


The slackline. Why on earth would you want to put all your body weight on a two inch wide piece of fabric, you may ask? It takes your balance to the extreme! Our friends Dan and Charlie (who you may remember tried out the hydrofoil a few weeks ago), have been practicing the slackline for a couple weeks now. They certainly put Ryan and me to shame. But, we did attempt it so that counts for something, right?! Don’t mind that I had Ryan hold my hand the whole time. Winking smile


We also made time for our weekend movie date to see 50/50, a story about a guy in his twenties who is diagnosed with cancer. As the title suggests, his chances of survival are 50/50. Though it was a tear jerker, it was really good. I’m a fan of both Joseph-Gordon Levitt and Seth Rogen and they were perfect together.

I also experienced my first Beer Church at Cape Fear Wine & Beer in downtown Wilmington. Though we frequent this spot and the boys have been before, I’ve never had the pleasure of enjoying Beer Church on Sundays. It’s really nothing more than having a beer on a Sunday… except you get a free glass to go along with it! We’re now proud owners of two new pint glasses. Winking smile

We also met a new friend, Gus the Saint Bernard, while we were sitting outside. Holy macaroni! Weighing in at a solid 170 pounds, he made Stedman look like a Yorkie. Sheesh!
