Weekend Highlights

Sunday, August 18, 2013

After taking a few trips in June and July, the weekends seem to get shorter and shorter because the prospective days off get fewer and further between. But we don't like to spend our weekends complaining about our lack of time, we go gangbusters and try to get every last drop out of them that we can.

Yesterday found us on the Wisconsin waterways. Hubster got done with work early and asked if we wanted to go for a little boat ride. Well, sure. If only I'd known that little boat ride would be six hours long, I would've packed more sunscreen, snacks and drinks. But I digress. Despite the sunburn, it was an amazing trip in my dad's little fishing boat.

Saturday boat ride

This was what our view looked like almost all day. Just beautiful trees over the water with amazing streams of light coming out of the clouds.

Actually, my view looked mostly like this. Ha! This knucklehead is a baby of a pit bull. Every time we hit choppy waters, he whined and tried to hide. But these calm waters made for a happy pooch.

Anyone know what these birds are? We found an island that had these white-looking trees just littered with these birds. It was a bit "Birds" creepy but cool at the same time.

Fox River Turtles

We saw turtles sunbathing on almost every open log.

I love spending my days with these guys.

Only in Wisconsin.

And.......I saved the best for last. Look at this majestic bird Hubster spotted out on the power lines on our way back. Such a rare treat:

Yesterday was completely unplanned, but I enjoyed every minute of it, even the time Hubster jumped a wave and got all of us soaked. Peanut started to cry until he saw how hard we were laughing. Crisis averted. Memories made. What a good day!
