Last weekend Mike and I were suppose to be in Butte, MT watching our friends compete in the Montana Lineman Rodeo with drinks in hand. Well somehow, which I'm still confused how OCD, control freak Cayla screwed the dates. The rodeo isn't until this upcoming weekend. Well we had planned on having my parents watch Wes so we could go and really enjoy it and not worry about the heat & nap times. My parents had already made plans for the 20th so yes we're missing out on the rodeo BUT we still took advantage of this weekend.
Now I'm not complaining because this was our decision to have me move home but this "part time single mom" gig was starting to take its toll. Wes spiked a fever of 104 suddenly and the sick bug stayed with him longer than I could mentally handle. By the time Thursday came around I was so ready to hand my sweet but whiney baby boy to mom and dad!
Mike and I got loaded up and headed up to Priest Lake Friday afternoon and started our wifey/husband trip! It was perfect and yes I'll use that word a few more times in this post :)
We stayed at Indian Creek at Priest Lake it wasn't exactly our cup of tea. We usually camp where we have no service, no camp neighbors and no "dogs on a leash" rule. After we set up our tent and kept getting dirty looks from Rem running around chasing squirrels we unloaded the 4 wheelers and got outta that camp!
wanna see a girl shine? put her in her natural elements
We found an old logging trail that took us up a mountain that over looked the lake. Random fact: I married a good old Idaho boy that had NEVER picked huckleberries before! whaaat? I don't know how I didn't know this fact and its probably better I didn't ;) anyways so on our ride I was on a mission to show Mike what huckleberry bushes look like even if the berries weren't ready yet. It worked out great and not only did we find bushes we found berries! big yummy ones! So my dear husband now can say he's picked berries before! We actually were able to pick over a quart of huckleberries. I'll be attempting to make a pie soon.
my boys picking berries!
When we headed back to camp it was a quick hot dog dinner and bed. We got up real early to start our big day! #16 on my 25 before I turn 25 list was to hike into "God's Waterslides" I had gone with my parents maybe 15 years ago!! When writing that list I knew I wanted to show Wesson the beautiful falls but after Saturday I'm so glad it was just us two. We rode 12 miles until we turned at Lion Creek and rode another 8 miles up on a pretty rocky path and than hiked 1 mile into see the beauty!
seriously how cute is this skirt!?
We showered and got dressed up to go get drinks downtown before heading over to a friends for a little BBQ. Of course we could have taken Wes to do these things but I wouldn't have been able to wear my cute dangle earrings though!
girls girls girls!
big ass fun group :)
Thanks again Mom & Dad for taking care of the little monster for the weekend. I forget how important it is to see your spouse as your husband again and not just as Wesson's daddy. I love falling in love with my husband again :)
love being married to my best friend :)
