Last weekend was memorial day weekend and I'm happy to report I actually did something fun. Nate and I went up north and did the outdoors-y thing. What qualifies as "outdoors-y," you might ask? In this case, it would be camping, kayaking, fishing, swimming, and boating. Unless you count boating and fishing as one since you do both at the same time. Bishing? Actually, kayaking and fishing were also completed simultaneously. Kishing? That's kinda like 'kissing.' That's not the point; I'm getting side tracked. Here's a picture of us on our kayaks:
Here's a picture of the fish Nate caught while we were out on the 'yaks:
I have no idea why it was so cold and windy up north on Memorial Day weekend, the alleged 'official summer kick-off weekend.' So Sunday, we decided to drive down to Roosevelt Lake where there's less altitude. And by less altitude I mean, hot. It was hot on Roosevelt. But that's OK cause it just meant we got to swim while we did the fishing thing and it actually felt like summer. Who am I kidding, it's felt like summer in AZ since March.
1.) It protects my face and neck from the sun; and we all know to 'just say no' to melanoma. Or is that drugs? Maybe both?
2.) It keeps me cool, and
3.) It's lucky cause I caught this bass (can't you hear that boom badoom boom boom badoom boom bass, I got that super bass)
The combination of all of the above means that I'm gonna sacrifice style for functionality...and lucky-ness. And I'm gonna wear it anyway.
Before it was time to head home, we tried out Willow Springs one more time to do some more fishing. It was still cold. And windy. But it's ok cause I caught another fish:
And so did Nate:
It was the first trout I've caught and Nate said "hold onto it tightly, they squirm a lot more than the bass." So that's what I did. But then he made fun of me for holding it too tight. I mean, I'll strangle the thing if I have to, to get a good picture.
And that's about it folks. That's the end of my Memorial Day weekend. At least that's where the pictures end, and let's face it, not one wants to read more words when there's no more pictures to go along with it. Or wine. I'm also out of wine.
I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday weekend. And the best part about a long weekend, is a short week!
