Monday Mentionings: July 6

SO much happened over the weekend! I’m going to share a bunch of pictures and try to explain a bit.  I was off work Friday, for Independence Day, and I took my best friend Amy to Hays for the long holiday weekend.  We crammed as much Western Kansas down Amy’s throat as we could in 3 days!

First stop, HAYS sign!

Dinner with Grandma and Granddad.  Dad grilled steaks and mom made cheesy potatoes.  Delicious.  Gordon got some lovin’ from Granddad.

Amy is all about the slides, ever since that first time at Black Bob Bay a couple weeks ago, we can’t keep her off them!

Three slugs on a rug.  Or so my mom said, to which Amy died laughing.  Prime fireworks watching seats, front row center.

Ready for a run on Sunday morning.  It was already steamy at 9:00am.  Took Shay for a couple miles then dropped her off to cool down.

We drove down by Big Creek to finish our run, and happened across some buffaloes.

Best parents ever, and Amy’s now officially part of the family.  Thanks, Mom and Dad for a super fun filled 4th of July weekend.
