After no fish at the first lake, a potty break in the bushes, a run into the nearest town (wish I would have known this step before I went into the bushes) for quick sandwich and chips and onto the next lake, our "few hours" was used up.
But that's when......
....the fun started happening.
We found "the spot." So then.....after many fish and many laughs, we headed home many hours later both sun burnt and happy.
Happy Labor Day!!
PS. I even put my own worms on this time!!!!! (I wore my gloves of course.)
As I am making my lists for this weekend's run, I am remembering one of my favorite runs from this year: Walt Disney World's Princess Half Marathon.
It was my best friend's first half marathon and let me tell you, she rocked it!
She has been running different runs this whole year and will soon be leaving to tackle her 2nd half marathon in Disney Land. I had so much fun getting to run with her and watch her accomplish all of her finishes so far with more to come. She is an inspiration!
This weekend, I will be teaming up with my sister-in-law to tackle the Go Far Women half marathon relay. Sounds like it will be a hot one, so will plan for lots of water during the run and lots of margaritas after the run!
Stay tuned for the results.
Whatever weekend plans you may have: GO FAR and ROCK IT!! :)
I am trying to get back into the swing of things and blog a bit more for my few, family followers, but I am just having too much fun "Horsing Around" apparently!
Charlie and I have been having a fun Summer, even though it has been a fast and furious one.
A while back, we were invited to the local horse track. Boy, have we been missing out!!! I had so much fun and with the $2 entrance fee and $2 bets, I even let Charlie buy something from the concession stand! :P Hope he doesn't get used to that!!
It was a cool, rainy day, which in turn made it even more fun to watch the mud fly. You could always find who the winner was......the clean man.
We would walk down to the corrals before each race to scout out who the guys wanted to bet on (betting is too stressful for me). The horses were beautiful and muscular. Then back to the grandstand to cheer them on.
We may have only picked one winner correctly, but overall the day was champion!!
My husband loves this pie and for some reason he is getting spoiled this week.
I can't question why I'm spoiling him because he fully deserves all of it and more. He is my rock when I want to quit, my sunshine when skies are gray and most of all the love of my life. I look forward to many more pies.
We are unable to be there in person to help my Dad celebrate his milestone birthday, but.....that is no reason to still not help him celebrate, right?! So in honor of his birthday, monkey bread for breakfast and who knows whats for lunch and supper.......
Sending all of our love and birthday wishes from North Dakota to South Dakota through the snow!!
