It was a whirlwind weekend! Although we spent Friday – Sunday morning in a very relaxing lodge owned by hubby’s work. We went hiking Saturday at Ha-Ha Tonka State park. It was a beautiful day for that and gave us some much needed exercise! 🙂
Sunday we arrived home at noon. Quickly began preparing for Jeremy’s Farewell party. We grilled 24 brats, 18 hamburgers, 10 pounds of chicken leg quarters, 5 pounds of pork steaks, and a package of hotdogs, 2 – 3 pound containers of potato salad, and 3 large cans of baked beans. For dessert we had watermelon, 48 mini cupcakes and 2 dozen cookies. There were 50 people who showed up to wish Jeremy and Cheyenne well in their military ventures!
I don’t have pictures of the party yet but I do have some other things to share! 🙂
I have a friend who has talked a lot about hiking with her husband. While my husband was on an 80 mile bicycle ride last Saturday and Sunday I decided to see if Linda would be interested in going for a hike some time. Wow did she ever. “How about tomorrow” was her response. So I jumped on the opportunity.
Sunday morning at 10:00 in the morning we hit our first trail. This was an experience to say the least. Little did I know she is directionally challenged! We made one wrong turn and ended up on what began as a 1.5 mile hike ending in a 6.5 mile hike! We were off the trail by 1:30. It was a beautiful day and I had plenty of water. But I went home and found an app for my phone that would track me. I also went to trails.com and subscribed so that I can load maps of trails all over the United States.
I will be taking more pictures with my phone in the future!
