Weekend Recap

This weekend was a pretty good one. Friday night, my husband and I had a very much needed date night to ourselves. We went out to eat and did just a little shopping. The next day he got up early with my dad (and when I say early, I mean like 3AM) and went duck hunting in the absolutely frigid cold. They came out successful though with 3 ducks. Yum. Can't wait to eat them. Duck is fabulous, especially wrapped in bacon!

We also celebrated Michael's sister's birthday a little early. Jennifer and Lola actually share the same birthday which is tomorrow! My little Lola will be turning one, I can't believe it! We went out to eat at the Bell Buckle Cafe where I had the most awesome smoked pork chop with turnip greens, green beans, vinegar slaw, and a lemonade. Yes, that's a lot of food and I ate every bite! We then came home to a funfetti cake and ice cream. Michael's mom even (accidentally) gave Lola a scoop.

(You can see the big white blob in her mouth) We think she liked it, but we could tell that her mouth felt funny from the cold! Thankfully we got it out before she ate most of it. I really didn't want any nasty surprises later! Yuck!

After that we headed out on the farm to try out the new camera we got each other for Christmas. I think I'm finally figuring out the settings, but I still need some practice on getting it to do exactly what I want.

My photos were mostly of cows considering everything looks pretty dead around here since winter is officially here. They turned out fairly well though I think. We had a lot of fun just walking around the farm even though we were walking in mud past our ankles! Even Lola had a great time. She made sure to step in every puddle and even eat a little cow poo along the way.
She actually got two baths that day. She hated every minute of the baths, but I think she thought it was worth it......and so did I.
