Weekend with the Family

I wasn't sure I was going to make it to the weekend, but I did. After a long week at work, family time is just want I needed.

I got into my parents pretty late on Friday night and then was up at the butt-crack-of-dawn to drive about another hour and a half to Penn State Mont Alto where the little one is. Exhausted as I was, I was determined to attend Cory's 5K walk/run. Thank God the walking part was an option ;D

After the run (cough cough walk) Mia, Matt (her boyfriend) and myself headed out. We toured around the area a bit and then we headed to the Pet Shop. This pet shop allowed you to take out the puppies and play with them. We choice an adorable English Bulldog. HA adorable? The store employees nicknames this dog "Frank the Tank". Not a good start to this puppy play date. The girl brought him over and immediately Frank started legit eating Mia. Forget her clothes and shoes, the skin must have tasted better. We felt bad but we made them put Frank back in his cage! The poor thing is going to have a hard time finding a home. It is too bad, he was adorable.

On the lunch - the best part of the day!
La Mattinas is honestly one of my favorite places. While appearance wise this place may not look like much. It is a family run -authentic Italian restaurant. The family's entire heart goes into each dish and you can taste the love and quaility with each dish. I enjoy the gluten free pasta and marina sauce with a side salad. The past, which is imported from Italy (or so I believe) was cooked al'dente. Yum!
