Some highlights of the weekend, on Friday I got to go shopping and relax while Hubby and the kiddos were in Sacramento watching some of the March Madness basketball games.  I even caught up on a lot of my fav TV shows. On Saturday, we welcomed back the Aggie basketball team on their great season and their first appearance into the NCAA tournament. 
Below the boys are with Chima Moneke, one of the key players of the post season games. The boys had fun getting autographs of some of the players and my 6 year old was happy to see his friend back since his friend's dad is an assistant coach.
Sunday started with my 14 mile long run. So great to run 11 of the 14 miles with a friend. I loved that we wore the same ProCompression socks without even planning it. :)
After the run, took the boys to the park to play some soccer with the neighborhood kids. 
Later in the afternoon, Hubby, P and his friend went back to Sacramento for more March madness basketball games while I hung out with C at home.
We enjoyed company of some friends and these yummy home made dumplings while watching the games on TV.
That pretty much sums up my week! Linking this post up with HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddlin for their Weekly Wrap. 
Have a great week!
