Camping

Christina and I had a girls camping trip this weekend.20150802_111807We had started to camp near the river but there were a lot of people there so we drove to Hidden Valley Lake instead.

Hidden Valley Lake.  It is beautiful.20150801_165121I had to take a pic because of the backpack.  She had her iron skillet in that thing!  Hahaha!

My fire pit prep.  Not bad if I do say so myself.

I have no clue why, but I didn’t get any pictures of the supper I made for us.  Well, here’s what we had anyway:  Chili Cheese Fries (everyone laughed that we had an appetizer!), Hamburger Steak Hobo Meal with onions, green pepper and carrots, new potatoes, corn on the cob.  For dessert we did s’mores, because what is camping without s’mores?  Anyway, it was all good and we were so full afterward.

Our fire.  The Husband was teasing us saying he wasn’t sure we’d be able to handle a fire.  Haha

We did have someone admire our fire…weird.  Haha

Christina bought these packets called Funky Flames that colored the flames of our campfire.  It was blue and green at times.  I couldn’t get a great picture though.  In this one you can see it a little bit.

This is me in my new sleeping bag!  LOL  It was a little chilly…

For breakfast Christina fixed bacon, eggs and fried biscuits.  It was delicious!

I had never had fried biscuits before and I can tell you this won’t be the last ones I have either!

Our traditional selfie.  I look a fright!  haha

We always have such a great time together.  It was non stop, ridiculous laughter and I wouldn’t trade a minute of it!  She’s my Soul Sister.

Quite a random update.

I have a lot of little things to talk about but nothing big so I have no clue how to title this post…

Anyway….

I was cleaning out the display cases and he decided he needed to get in there.  He’s clearly not afraid of being in them anymore!

My mom was getting home late Friday so I went by to let her dogs out for a few minutes and put them back in.  While I was chasing her wild child of a dog Oreo around Rylan decided to hang out with Bailey in her kennel!  haha

Saturday was blah.  We rested.  It was rough.  I’m not really a sit and rest kind of person.  I apparently needed it though because I was supposed to go to Zumba that morning and I slept in.

Shock.

I know.

I had a headache too.  Sometimes your body just needs that I guess.

On Sunday I was in a cooking mood.  I’ve been looking for a good chili recipe.

I found this one from The Pioneer Woman.  At first I wasn’t too crazy about it but I made a few tweaks to it and I really like it.  20150712_163308

I also made some monkey bread.  It’s not that great for you but everyone needs a treat every now and then.

20150712_162421My little man eating his supper.  He’s such a big boy.  He won’t sit in his high chair anymore.  I guess he’s too “cool” for that now.  He does great in a regular chair though so that’s where he sits.

Rylan had to go for his well child checkup Monday.  He’s 34.5″ and 25lbs!  20150713_125205

 

He had to have a finger stick and his last Hep A shot.  He HATED the band aid on his finger.  The prick wasn’t bad but when she put the band aid on he was not a happy camper.  I’m guessing this is when it probably started throbbing too.

When it came time for his shot he started telling the nurse “Peese, Peese, Non’t”.  Poor little feller.  :(  He’s so smart and so cute.

As for a workout update:

I’ve wanted to try Yoga for years now and it has just not worked out for me.  I finally gave it a whirl last Monday though and I love it!  You really do use muscles you haven’t used in a long time, if ever.

My arms and my abs really got a good workout.  I felt it for the rest of the week…no joke!

I went again last night and it was wonderful!

I burned 383 calories in an hour and was completely challenged.  I now get what all the fuss is about.  I’m going to add a Yoga class into my routine once a week for sure.  I wish I could do it 7 days a week honestly.

I’d take pictures but in such a calm environment with so much concentration (and lets face it…weird positions) I don’t really feel like it’s appropriate.  I know I wouldn’t want someone taking pictures of me trying to do any of it.
