Summer Bucket List: Float the River

I can officially cross off the first thing from my Summer Bucket List: Floating the river.

Ian & I were invited to tag along with a large group of people to float the Elk River so, of course, we grabbed some beer & our floaties and we were off! I don’t have many pictures because knowing me, my phone would have ended up in the water but it was nice to disconnect for a few hours anyway.

River floatIan had his priority Beer. Mine was more practical: sunscreen.

Floating the river was relaxing and we went with a great group of people! Ian & I both got so sunburned even though we went through an entire bottle of sunscreen haha.

First bucket list item down, stay tuned for the next one!

Branson Weekend Getaway

Last weekend Ian & I went up to Branson for a weekend getaway. We spent most of the day at White Water – a huge water park!
WW SignSaturday was 97* out which is incredibly hot for us Seattle natives

Ash and Ian wave poolWe had the most fun relaxing in the wave pool or floating the lazy river but we did make sure to go on every ride there including…

WW RideThis scary ass drop one. When you get on it at the top, you cannot see down at all! Ian & I weren’t going to do it but we saw 7-8-year-olds doing it so then we hadddd to!

We went on another ride where you stood up and they took the floor out from underneath you so you fell down the water tubes, I definitely peed a little bit. I wish I would have gotten a picture of it but even thinking about it makes my stomach drop.

It worked out well that a friend of Ian’s was in Branson the same weekend and they were able to get us a room at their timeshare. It was SO nice. The place we stayed had basketball courts, disc golf, jacuzzis, firepits, a huge pool with a bar, the grounds was amazing. I kept asking Ian if we had to leave haha

ww poolThis is where we were all night. It was the perfect evening for a night swim and then we enjoyed time in the hot tub.

Another great weekend in the books! I’m having the best time exploring all the new areas we now live by. Nothing beats a fun, relaxing weekend with my babe. Can’t wait for the next!

Ian’s 31st Birthday

Yupp, Ian turned 3-1 this year! For his 30th birthday last year I had my college commencement ceremony so obviously, that was his best birthday 🙂  but I was determined to give my babe a very memorable birthday this year!

We started his birthday weekend with a round of golf at one of the nicest courses around. The course is in a senior community so we got paired with the CUTEST older couple – Pat & Jerry and with another couple more our age – Mike & Angie.

All of the guys were upset because Pat outdrove all the men on every hole since her tee boxes were about 150 yards in front of the men. Ian would get upset because she hit it straight every. single. time. haha!

ian and ash golfThe course was beautiful & the people that worked there were all retired & so sweet! I wanted to hug everyone but Ian said that would be weird.

We’re old so after our round, we took a nap and then I took my handsome man out for a steak dinner!
