I’m not sure how it’s Friday already! I was in Hays last weekend for the long holiday weekend. I was lucky enough to take my 2 best friends with me for the weekend. I meant to have this post on Monday, or Tuesday at the latest, but the week has gotten away from me!
So Friday after work, we packed up and headed to Hays!
One of my favorite sights, the Hays exit!
We had to stop at the Hays sign.
Our attempt at a squatting picture, hah!
Saturday morning was the Wild West 5k! It was rainy and actually cool (for July). Michelle busted out a huge PR, and Amy was only seconds away from her PR. I survived it, dealing with some knee/calf pain, and Mom did great!
I don’t even know. This just kind of happened, and we are all lucky enough that Amy got it on my phone.
Mom, me, Amy, and Michelle after the 5k.
Next up, SNOBALLS!!!
After snoballs, we went to the Q for lunch. Mmmmmmm that Q burger really hit the spot.
Saturday night, we hung out at home and had pizza for dinner. Then Sunday morning, Mom, Amy, and I headed out for 5 miles. We ran by this little farm that has horses, and Mom packed some carrots for us to feed to them. Amy was terrified at first, but made friends fast.
They were so pretty.
Post 5 mile run fun.
Later Sunday afternoon, Mom, Dad, and I took Amy to Sternberg. She had fun, even though she’s not a huge museum person. We had fun walking through the museum and seeing the exhibits.
After the museum we went down to Frontier Park to check out the stepping stones and swinging bridge.
Sunday night, we had Grandma and Granddad over, and had tacos and nachos. Granddad had a little twitter lesson, too.
After dinner we had s’mores, and listened to hundreds of dollars of fireworks being blown up by neighbors.
Monday morning, we went for a short little run, and it was warm, but drizzly.
After our run, the sun came out and it warmed up. We drove around in the bug, got another snoball, and hit up Taco Shop for lunch!
Then Monday afternoon, it was time to get back to KC. We got some snoballs for the road, and headed back home!
It was such a fun weekend, and the time flew by, as it always does. I’m so glad I could make this trip with Michelle and Amy! Can’t wait til my next trip home.
