Chad's Day Off

 The second Chad got home from work I told him I had to hurry and catch the sunset, and rushed out the door to the Youth Farm near our house.  The pics were underwhelming, but better than nothing.
 Jet should be purple from eating too many grapes.   
 Family bike ride.  (Yeah, I need a new chain...yipes...but such interesting colors.) Of course during the trip, Chad was trying to figure out how we could carry the dogs in another bike trailer.  "Chad, they're fine at home." 
 PS, this isn't the Carrie Bradshaw Bun.  This is one really ugly messy bun, that looks more like a pincushion on my head.  I don't dress up for my bike.  Sorry bike, nothing personal.  I like to think you are attracted to the more natural, adventurous type.
 Chad picked some blackberries for us.  Thanks Hun.
We came across a beehive.  Chad took this picture because I wasn't brave enough to let bees land on me while taking the picture.  Once again, thanks Hun!
 Picnic at the park.  Jet's first willow tree experience.
 My first BMX excursion, and definitely not the last.  Loved it!  If you have done even A LITTLE mountain biking and liked it, this is for you.  It's unsupervised and unfenced, so you can go for free whenever you want.    

That night, we celebrated Chad's birthday early and went to the Electric Station.  We splurged.  Chad said that all he wanted for his birthday was the best Prime Rib he could get.  Um...okay.  Such a guy.

The Crab and Artichoke Dip was the best thing I've ever eaten.  So creamy, yet still light tasting.  Not too salty or overly seasoned, but still so full of flavor.  Not too crabby.  That's always a plus!

 I liked the bathroom stall.  I thought I would share it with you.  I used that very toilet.  Yes, really.  It was the middle stall, in case you want to visit it.

I'm still cracking up over the toilet-- can't remember what else I was going to say. Ok, went back and re-read. I love the beehive picture. That is awesome! Maybe Jett didn't turn purple but I wouldn't have wanted to be the one to change the diaper that ensued from too many grapes. ;) And I am missing blackberries while I am in Utah! I hope there are still some there when I get home.


Oh my gosh those pics are so good! You are doing such an amazing job on teh pics! I have never been to the electric station! I always wanted to try it. That's fun you guys were able to go out. I love the pic of you and jet on the bench. it is so sweet.
