Labor Day

Q and I had an enjoyable time together yesterday. Plan A was to head towards the mountains, but there was a huge fire (as many of you have heard), so we decided to go to Boulder instead. After grabbing some Starbuck's and a light lunch, we were on our way.

We have become avid putt-putt golfers lately--it is always tough competition between the two of us. Both of the courses at Gateway Park are fun and challenging. We each won a game--yahoo!:)

We then went to the popular Pearl Street in Boulder to walk around and visit some shops. We even got some sweet treats at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.

On the way back to town, Q said, "You know what we didn't do this summer?--the boats at Waneka Lake." I thought that Labor Day was the last day and since it was close to 6 p.m., I knew that we'd have to wait until next year. Q wanted to go fishing there and we wanted to have our picnic there as well, and I was content with that. But--when we arrived, we noticed a boat out on the lake, so we went to the boat house and asked if they were still letting people go out there. It turns out that they're open for a few more weekends. Their paddle boats are awesome. Some are shaped like a swan, duck, pink flamingo, dragon, and this pirate ship that Q and I got to ride:

My dear husband gave up his wanting to go fishing out on the canoe to satisfy my desire to ride in one of the paddle boats. Awww...he's sweet and I love him dearly. Thanks, Q!

He looks like a mighty fine captain of our pirate ship, don't you think?

After our ride, Q set out his fishing poles and started cooking our steak. I pulled out some fancy new yarn and knitted some time away.

Q didn't catch anything, but we did have some anticipation going for a while as we watched one of the lines pulling for a bit. We think that the crawfish chewed the meat off...oh well, maybe next time, right?

How was your Labor Day? I'd love to hear what you did with your friends and family.:)

Looks like you have a great weekend. I went up to the camp to visit everyone. It was a bit bittersweet. I miss it tremendously, but know that God has moved me where I need to be.
