Monday Mentionings: October 3

Hello, happy October, and happy Monday!

I was in Hays over the weekend, and took Chris along with me, so I only have a few photos from the weekend to share!  We made it into Hays Friday evening, and very early Saturday morning, Chris and I ran 10 miles around Hays.  Mom joined us about halfway through, and it was such a beautiful morning for a long run.

Just after our run, we went to Cervs to get snoballs and then watched the FHSU parade.  Chris had his first snoball.  He’s hooked now too, just like me.

After the parade and lunch (at Lomato’s), we drove around Hays a bit showing Chris the sights, and then got another snoball.  Dad even got one!

Later on Saturday, after dinner with Grandma and Granddad (at Gutierrez), we had dessert and hung out with Grandma and Granddad, and Steve, Leann, and Ava.  Ava was shy at first around Chris, but certainly got over her shyness Saturday night.  She and Chris played for quite a long time.

Sunday morning, Mom and I ran, while Dad biked along with us, then we all went out to the Q for lunch.

First of all, I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! I have SO many photos to share with you this week! I’m going to just do a quick sentence per picture, to get through them all!

My week started out with a Bestie date with Belle at Red Robin, including lots of bottomless fries!
