Anyway, to get myself back on track, I figured I would do a little rewind of what happened this past "long" weekend, as I was M.I.A. on Friday!
Thursday morning, bright and early, I woke up around 4:30, in order to get a workout in before we headed back to my hometown for a little "Platte County Fair" action. Madden and I (Aaron left for Chicago on Thursday for work, so it was just the two of us) were on the road at 7:00 a.m. sharp, jamming out to our fave country music, with a little coffee in hand for me and a juice box for M...
|Someone looks a lil seepy ;)|
|No, I don't know who these kids are...I just had to show you what a sheep show looked like!|
|His first Dippin Dots experience...Love.|
|You can't go to the fair and not get a funnel cake.|
|Amazing BBQ nachos|
Checked out Madden's prize winning flowers...
|Grammy entered some flowers for him from her garden...proud Grammy and proud Madden :)|
Then called it a night after it was a "no-nap" day for little guy...up for 14 hours straight makes for an awesome time, let me tell ya!
|No, this obviously isn't Madden, but this pretty much sums it up!|
Friday morning was the perfect morning for a beautiful early country "back roads" run. I just love being able to hit the gravel and run with nothing around me but cornfields, hay bales and pastures for miles!
Then, we headed back to the fair where we watched a cattle show all day long...
|Can you picture me doing this about 15 years ago??|
Followed by my parents taking M back home with them for the night while I headed out with my little sister for a night of one-on-one time with her and a few too many drinks in the oh-so-classy beer garden...Let's just say, I ended the night by snarfing down THE BEST taco truck quesadilla I have ever had at around 2 a.m. Classy, right???
|Trust me. It was legit.|
|He was so proud of himself. Kept saying "I 'rook rike' Daddy!"|
Needless to say, Sunday morning we slept in until after 9:30, and M didn't wake until 10:30!! We hung out all day, before we headed over to a friend's house for dinner and drinks on their deck while the kiddos played in the backyard. A great ending to a chaotic last few days. But I am so ready to get back to normal around here...you know how I love me a good routine!
Until next time...
