At the very last minute Alex and I decided, what the heck let’s go to WV on Friday night. We had been debating it for days and had 90% decided, okay, okay we’ll just go up Saturday to miss the traffic. After I got home from work we piddled our thumbs for about 20 minutes and wondered, “what in the world are we going to do tonight?” So in about 15 minutes flat we packed up our bags, rounded up the pup, and jumped in the truck.
We still got up here fairly late, but all in all we were happy we made the trip. After an hour of hanging, we headed to bed. The whole house was up early in time for a nice cup of coffee and a long sit on the porch to watch the foggy, brisk morning turn into a beautiful warm afternoon. We also had a yummy breakfast including a ginormous fruit salad and egg casserole.
After some digestion took place — off on our hike we went! We enjoyed the wildlife and had a good laugh watching the pups swim.
Our trek was long and mainly uphill — but was definitely worth it! At the top of the mountain we found a brave turtle (and the boys tried to torture it)
And then the dog tried to eat him…
Apparently I smelled because no one wanted to walk with me 😦
Except for the dog — he didn’t mind the smell
It’s not all fun and games though, we also did a some work (not me, but still)
Afternoon plans include:
- A trip in town to the local and ever-classy WalMart
- Making lots of Memorial Day Weekend snacks
- Having a super-sweet bonfire
- Afternoon drinks
- Making BEER-BUTT CHICKEN!
- Maybe even squeezing in a shower 🙂
See ya later!!
