Weekend Adventures

This weekend we kind of layed low. Friday night, we decided to drive down to Kansas. We have lived in McCook, which is only 12 miles from the Kansas border, for 2 years now and this was the first time I had been down to the Kansas border. We went to the closest town after the border and had some dinner and then drove back home. Saturday we went and walked around down town where Crazy Days was going on. They had a big obstacle course and giant bouncer that Carson had a blast going in. We grabbed what are called jiffy burgers (ground hamburger topped with potatoe salad on a homemade bun), a local favorite here and went up to the park for lunch. After lunch we let the boys play for a while then went home for naps. After naps we headed down to one of the parks that they stock with fish and went fishing. We were there for about an hour and were ready to leave when the fish started to bite. Christian caught 3 and Carson caught 2 the last 20 minutes we were there. Carson was so excited to actually catch a fish. The first one he reeled in he called it a "monster" fish because he thought it was SO big...but from the pictures you can tell they were just little guys! It was such an enjoyable weekend. I always love spending time with my boys. Even if we don't do anything overly exciting, I'm so glad to just be with them! They sure do brighten my day!

There's something about town celebrations that just makes summer so exciting! Your boys are growing so fast (just like mine...) and are ABSOLUTELY adorable (oddly enough, just like mine...!)

Isn't Kansas great?! (my home state) I love how every town in the midwest has their own celebration days- how fun! My parents just moved to North Platte, so hopefully we'll be seeing you!!
