Man. I am beat.
But we had a really fun day at B's company picnic. Lots of good food. Lots of laughing. Lots of fun stuff to do.
First on our agenda was a trail ride. It was K4's first time on a horse that wasn't led by someone else. She did fantastically and absolutely loved it. I had the same horse I had last year - he's a little ornery and kept trying to leave the trail. I like him, but I'm a little saddle sore now.
After that, we hiked up this gigantic hill to the pavilion to eat. Awards were given out. B got the "Pot of Coffee" award because he's the first one there every day.
Then, we moved on to balloon shaving. K4 had that one in the bag even though she was competing with guys who regularly shave their heads. I declined to participate in the egg toss. K2 had enough yolk on her for all of us. Gross. B's team got demolished in the tug-o-war, and I was regretting not bringing my suit when I took K4 to the pool. The kids had a blast. Well, all but K1 who ended up with a stomach bug that had him up all night.
B's company is filled with a lot of great people and it was fun to hang out with everyone away from the office. We'd planned on camping, but with the transmission issues the 'burban's having, decided the mountainous journey was probably not a good idea. After stopping by a co-workers campsite, we decided we'll definitely camp next year. Their view was incredible and the sites are so quiet.
Now, tomorrow we get to do the whole picnic thing over again with the Boy Scouts. Potato salad, anyone?
