Another weekend is gone!

Boy, where did the weekend go??! Yesterday was a crazy day! We went to the "Chicken Run ll Geocaching Event" at Barboursville Park hosted by buddies Mike Smith and Bobby Wintz. It was fun but at 1:00 in the afternoon, it felt like we were walking on the surface of the sun! They had hidden 5 caches around the park and of course, Dennis wanted to take the shortest route which meant going through fields of waist high weeds! Crown Vetch is now my new worst enemy. We got off to a bad start because some dude wanted to chat and tell us how much he enjoyed our caching adventures when we were trying to put in the coord's on our GPS's. He even wanted us to pose for a picture! So we got all confused and Dennis ended up putting in some wrong numbers, etc. and we had to stop and figure out that mess. It wasn't really a race though because you drew cards after you found all five caches and the best hand won. You also got bonus points if you were first to find, which we never were....sigh.....And the heat made everyone really weary. At least there was no obvious poison ivy but I did get some nice arm scratches which look pretty good today. Alot of people asked us when we were doing our fall event again and now we are thinking it's time to resurrect the "Wonder Run"! Everybody really loved our crazy, funny hides and we enjoyed hosting it. So maybe in October...........! We ended the event with a few meatballs, a bag of chips, one cookie and then headed to McD's for an ice cream cone. Nice dinner, huh!?
The start of the event and already we were sweating!
After the countdown to start, everyone took off to try to be the first to find on a cache.
Then when I got home, I started in to the mow routine and push mowed for an hour out front! Dennis came out after I was done and said "I didn't hear you out here!" to which I replied, "OH, there's PLENTY more grass to do!!" So he hopped on the mower and did the rest of it! ;-) We were pretty done at that point and just laid on the couch like dead bodies after that!
