All in a Weekend

The pavement had patches of dry and wet... The air was humid but not raining. We hopped on our bikes at 5 pm hoping to get a ride in worth our time before the dark came in like a Monday morning. We made it up to Southview for a view point. We both said we could keep cruising... All the way to Utah or Arizona.  

I've fished for the last three days and got nothing. Well no fish anyways... But quality time with my sweetheart and a view to write home about! 

While the dishes had piled up and the laundry even higher... I decided to make a batch of Apple pear butter. I sliced and cored 5lbs of apples and pears combined. Next I  placed them in the crock pot to soften and simmer while I went to play for a bit. (Fishing then motorcycle riding.)
Soccer is the name of the game lately. Spencer is doing awesome at goal keeper. While Ruben still watches from the side lines while recovering from his head injury. It is very hard to watch and not join in. However Ruben is having  much better attitude than I thought he would. 
I took a little time to practice some henna from a batch I mixed up. It is one of my favorite parts of Spirit weavers Gathering, the henna class. 
Spencer played until dark the other night. His team had made it to finals. He'll be playing in a tournament the weekend after soccer league ends. 
I went with Tres to the beach Sunday morning. He watched for waves and I came along for a walk on the beach
All in a weekend, we pack as much fun in as we can... For next to nothing from our bank account. I sure appreciate where we live for making this fun so easy, cheap, and exciting. I do think that no matter what we do, when we are together we make the most if our time and really enjoy each other.

Siltcoos River Mouth

The snowy plover season has passed. Our favorite beach opens for just a few months. We love exploring this wild and alive beach and river. Today's low tide allowed us to explore both sides of the river. Pancho was determined to join us so he actually went swimming! He has never done that before. Even though it is October... We all got in too.
