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!
Lunch at Gutierrez on Friday. Delicious. Set the tone for an amazing weekend.
Snoballs happened. Multiple times.
Quick walk around the block with Shay puppy on Friday evening.
Dinner with Grandma and Granddad. Dad grilled steaks and mom made cheesy potatoes. Delicious. Gordon got some lovin’ from Granddad.
Saturday morning, 5k race time! Read my recap here!
Snoballs to celebrate the race. And snoballs are a must have for parade-watching, which we did.
Top-down cruising in the Bug. Summer, we are living you!
Q burger for Amy. She’s a Hays girl now.
Pool time on the 4th of July? Yes please!
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!
Ava joined us at the pool for a while. Girls rule the afternoon!
Three slugs on a rug. Or so my mom said, to which Amy died laughing. Prime fireworks watching seats, front row center.
Hays fireworks show is always a good one.
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.
Amy’s all over this western Kansas prairie running business. She’s got this, ya’ll.
Twinning in our CERVs aviators. Loved our time in Hays together.
My best girl and me. Love this one to pieces.
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.
And one more snoball to take on the road. Catch you next time, Hays.
Did you have a good 4th? Any celebrating?
