Holiday weekends = Bad Blogger

So, I was a bad blogger this weekend. But we had so much stuff going on and I was soooo tired that I just couldn’t.  But here I am with all the fun.


It was our one year anniversary, so we spent the morning alone and it was really nice.  We did the farmers market and the parade and then home to wait for the kids.  I cooked up some yummy tartlettes for our picnic:

And we packed up and headed out to city beach.

All day we fought the clouds. It tried to rain on us a few times, but it was worth it. We fought that to get this:

We had a great day just spending time as a family:

A good time was had by all. And after what seemed like an eternity (actually 4.5 hours) we got what we came for:

It was a great night:


I woke up on sunday way too early and had to go to work. But I saw my little friend on the way up the mountain.

He was on the passenger side of the car just chillin, eatin some bfast.

Then he realized that I was there and wanted to come say hi. I am not ready for that part of our relationship…. so I sped off taking this last picture as I did:

Work was work. No pics from that… but I can show you one that I took last summer:

This is the view into the village at Schweitzer from the front door of the lodge.

When I got home Bill and Erik were watching UFC, so I sat down to relax and I never got back up. The fireworks didn’t happen for us since the sky decided to open up. Dinner was a fun experiment:  Saute walla walla onion, mushrooms, garlic scapes, turkey bacon, fresh basil. Add 3 ice cubes of tomato sauce, 2 tbsp heavy cream and 3 fresh terragon leaves and serve over pasta with parm. So good!

Don’t you love the pattern on my apron?

When the rain stopped for a moment, we went outside an lit off some of the fireworks we bought for the kids. Hey… we’re kids too. 🙂 It was fun, but we decided to save the really big ones for this weekend when the real kids can oooh and aaaah.

We sat on the couch the rest of the night and snuggled and ate ice cream that I never should have bought.


This was the last day of Bill’s 5 day weekend. I love having him home with me, but I have a routine of how I do things each day, so its nice to have him at work too.

We went for our run and I am still having so much trouble breathing. I think this may be exercise induced asthma. I am going to talk to my doctor about this and see if I can get an inhaler to help with it.

We had breakfast and watched last week’s So you think you can dance. Mmmm breakfast!

I spent the rest of the day doing nothing until I had to go to work. Again… work was work. I did have  a lady and her two daughters come down to the lobby at about 10pm and tell me that there was a bear in the pool. Truthfully he was in the pool area… he wanted the garbage. Sooo, that was a bit of excitement. Ooooo!

Anyway, that was my weekend. Nothing else going on around here. The house is a mess after all that doing nothing, so I am going to clean today.

Have a great one.
