Mother’s Day Weekend

Another great weekend for the books.  With already great plans in mind & then to get spoiled because it was Mother’s Day just topped it off.  However, I am blessed in the fact that anytime that I spend with my favorite people makes it a good day.  Saturday started off cloudy, but by the time we made it on the water, the sky opened up and it was beautiful.  The kayaks made their maiden voyage & they were a hit.  I think float trip plans are in the making for later on this summer.

When we bought the lake house I certainly had reservations because I’ve never been much of a fan of water.  I can’t swim so I tend to stay away from the water and I am very cautious when I am around it.  However, I think having the lake house might be one of the best decisions we’ve ever made.  It’s a blessing to be able to come down every weekend and unwind from our busy schedules and just focus on family time.  The kayaks had me a little concerned but I took the leap, strapped on my life jacket, brought along our little companion and I loved it.  I’m finally coming around to the lake life.  My family are lake lovers and we’ve never gone much because of my reservations, but it’s been amazing.  Our oldest who works full-time and is always on the go has even been coming down to visit & I couldn’t be happier to see everyone loving it.  It’s nice to know that while we are working our tails off Monday Friday that we have something to look forward to every weekend now & that’s why we’re working.  Continue reading “Mother’s Day Weekend”

Saturday Road-trip

Elk with Watermark

This past Saturday we buckled in and headed for Fremont, Missouri to visit Peck Ranch Conservation Area in hopes of seeing some Elk & luckily we spotted one (just one), but it was a beautiful drive around the area and it got us out of the house.  The red dirt roads and pine trees in the area were a nice change of scenery considering everything else is in winter mode and brown.

Warm Winter Weekend

Despite not feeling well this weekend I could not resist getting outside and enjoying the 50+ degree temperatures over the weekend (This morning I woke up to 15 degrees..Brrr).  We managed to add about another 250 miles to the odometer as we wandered about.  We stopped at the Calhoun hub of the Katy Trail State Park and ventured down the trail to find an beautiful old bridge dated 1926.  The Katy Trail State Park consist of 240 miles on the old Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad corridor.  I’ve walked a few of the trailheads and it has some beautiful scenery that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to see.
