Our weekend FLEW by! It was such a good one.
Saturday we slept in (hallelujah!) and then went with Casey, Connie, and Peyton (Hey Casey!) to the cardboard boat races up at Mines. Ryan participated in his undergrad so it's a blast from the past to go back and watch. Basically there are teams of students and their goal is to make a boat out of only cardboard and duct tape and float it (and ALL passengers) down Clear Creek. Gaahh!
We saw SEVEN people in one boat and it didn't sink! The water is FRIGID but it's fun to see what people come up with and be out enjoying the spring sunshine.
This is Ryan when he did it his Senior year (he's in the back)! You can't even see the boat because it sank. Ha. It was a submarine!
Then we had the Malones over for dinner which is always a fun time. We love time with them. And to finish our evening we met Lauren and Matt (you guys rock!) at a firework show at Mines. It was AWESOME!! Oh my, I have no words. it's the best fireworks show we've ever been to. They bust out literal sticks of dynamite, 20 foot green flames, and gorgeous regular fireworks.
We were reflecting this weekend and realized that it was this weekend 5 years ago that Ryan and I first met!! We were introduced at a rootbeer kegger (we were obviously crazy in college, ha ha) and then went to the fireworks. It's such a sweet memory to have. I love that we can remember seasons of our relationship from so long ago. I'm grateful to keep enjoying these traditions with my man :)
Oh and we got a chicken coop! Man, it WAS a busy weekend eh?
My friend Kate built a coop but decided she couldn't use it due to a move. So we took it off her hands. It will house 4 chickens which we'll be getting in just a few weeks here. We already have then named: Huevos, Chorizo, Bacon, and Sausage. Yum ;)
We'll only have hens and expect them to lay about 5 eggs a week each. There are just a few minor things we need to do with the coop (insulate it, bury chicken wire, etc) before we get the ladies. And then I'll post pictures of our new additions.
Ok that is all! It was a good weekend minus Sunday afternoon when this pretty much summed up my life:
TMI? Oh well. Hope you have a full, wonderful weekend yourself and we'll talk more this week.
