Log Rolling

Yeah for "L"!!  We went to Lake Wingra in Madison and tried log rolling.  This was a free "try it" session put on my Madison Log Rolling.  It was a lot of fun!

We were in about knee to thigh depth water.  You get on the log and you look towards the log at the opposite end from yourself.  You spread your arms out and with small quick steps you try not to fall off.  I enjoyed it but Brian seemed to really really enjoy it.  There ended up being three other people who came to try it and with a big pat on our backs we seemed to do a little better than them. 

Too bad there weren't more hours in the day/week so that we could try adding these fun activities into our schedule.

There is absolutely too much to write about an awesome, week long vacation to Yellowstone.  So here it is in photo format!

The kids playing at a playground at a rest stop on our way out.

Sheep crossing in the Big Horn Mountains, WY.  There were thousands of them, it seemed. 

Standing in front of Shell Falls in the Big Horn Mountains, WY.

Those three blanket heaps are three sleeping kids.

"J" Date

Our J date ended up being a flop!  Therefore we JUNKED it!

We were going to have a journey or a jaunt to the other side of the state for a concert and a night in a hotel.  Brian ended up going out of town for storm work.  I ended up going to the concert without him and we got a rain check on the hotel.  No fun!  But at least our "L" date is this weekend. (Did you notice I said "L"?  You are right "K" should come next but we are flip flopping "L" and "K".)  See you in a few weeks with some photos from the water.
