3 Random Things

Here are 3 things that are exciting or strange and that are so much so that they have earned a place in yet another memorable 3 Random Things post.

1. The wild fires are going crazy on pretty much on all sides of us so the weather report is always saying hot and smokey. But still a lovely scene to wake up to.

I’ll have to do a post about pancakes one day…

2. I LOVE PANCAKES! These are S’mores pancakes. I just added s’more ingredients to the pancake batter.

how cute?

3. This is our only tomato from our ten bushes… only red tomato…

Date #3

It was Peter’s turn.  (We each plan one expensive and one inexpensive date each month.)

IT was amazing! We were going to hike up, but we were running late and out of sunlight so we drove to the top. I was glad we did since as soon as we got out of the car we heard many coyotes!!

Then we had some chicken noodle soup and watched the lovely skyline. Although the smoke did prevent us from seeing as far as usual.

I love date night. I love Peter.


Adventures in Kayaking… Date #2

wearing a wet suit- a 1st time for me!

Peter and I are doing two expensive and two inexpensive dates (one for every week!) This week was are expensive date. WE planned this one together. Actually, we wanted to do this kayaking class for our vacation (when we hiked badger Mt. and went back packing). So we went to a kayaking class. 7 hours! But it was totally worth it! I LOVED IT! and just in case you can’t tell from the pictures… Peter, hot guy in the wet suit, also enjoyed it.

Sorry no pictures of the actual adventure *sad face*

Goodness there were so many thing sI could tell you because it was an incredible day! It was super awesome. Ah.. but alas for the lack of  space, time, and focus i’ll just tell you my favorite part:  practicing rescuing Peter and also learning to rescue myself ; )

SO adventurous!

on the way there


1 Listen to your guides. Seriously, the trip wouldn’t have been half as fun without our super awesome teachers. They were hilarious and totally ripping on Peter in a fun loving way.

2 Drink water and wear sunscreen. Necessities.

3 Relax and Laugh! Whether you fall in on purpose or not (lol- PETER) or can’t paddle straight (cough, cough… me) its so much more fun when you can laugh and laugh a lot.

Peter the “man” HE was the life of our kayak posse
