Good Dirty Fun

4 Jun

This Saturday Christian, JoLynne, Rachel and I all ran in the Dirty Dash: an obstacle course through the mud. We had to take the shortcut version of the course (3.5 miles instead of 5.5) in order to be back in time to take the kids through the Piglet Plunge. My back was more than a bit worse for the wear the next day, but it was well worth the beating to get to slip and slide through the mud.

I hope we get to see Harrison Ford

I was recently invited to spend Memorial weekend in Driggs, ID with my oldest friend Rachel. Rachel now lives with my old roommates, who were also going on the trip, along with a bunch of their friends. The weather was cold and wet and sometimes blizzard-y, but we managed to have a great time anyway. We spent one day visiting Jackson Hole, WY and another in Yellowstone. (I can’t believe Ashlee had never been before!) We played games and ate junk food and tried on a variety of cowboy paraphernalia. More importantly, I got to eat my favorite huckleberry ice cream. On the drive home with Becca, we even managed to hit 4 states in one day. A worthwhile adventure for sure. Unfortunately for us, Harrison Ford was out of town shooting a movie. One of these times I’ll spot him…
