On a Horse

Yesterday was packed full of fun!


It started off with a bowl of Three Sisters Chai spiced instant oatmeal with a big scoop of Earth Balance PB. Really lack luster, but hey, it was food and I was hungry!

A little before noon (after attempting to catch rabbits at Chase’s grandma’s house), I was hungry again and craving a Subway sandwich. Strange right? I got an Ultimate Veggie with Spinach and Avocado along with American cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, red onions, cucumbers, and olives on whole wheat bread. I also splurged and ate these Miss Vickie’s Sea Salt & Vinegar chips. They were good!

Then we were off for the main event!

What could this be?

Did we actually have an outdoor adventure!?

20120821-NOW 014

Yes we did! Kathy (Chase’s mom, in the back) took us horseback riding! This lucky woman gets to do this every day!

I love horseback riding though I haven’t been on a horse in over a decade. When I was a little girl I took some riding lessons with Steph but got kicked out when me and her couldn’t play nice.. ever since I’ve yearned to return.

It was super super hot out but we had a great time! Chase was on a horse called Ed and my girl was named, Fiona.

At the end, I got overheated and maybe low blood sugar? I started to get really nauseous and then everything went dark and I almost fainted. Sweat Luckily Chase got me sitting down with my head between my knees and I just dumped buckets of sweat for a few minutes until we could go. We stopped at Macdonald’s on the way home and I chugged this small HI-C Orange. Wow haven’t drank this junk in years! It was a lot sweeter than I remembered it.

After everyone showered (damn horseback riding is dirty work!), we headed out to Johnny Carino’s for a big family dinner. Chase’s parents, Chase and I, Chase’s grandma Erma, and Chase’s Aunt and Uncle all showed.

Still super thirsty (don’t worry I drank water too), I enjoyed a raspberry Italian soda along with probably half a loaf of their delicious bread.

I always get soup and salad when I got to Johnny Carino’s and I’m so glad I stuck to that. I loved this Caesar salad! I would have got another one since they are unlimited but the waitress didn’t come back in time. XD

And of course my favorite minestrone soup of all time was consumed. MM mmm! Really yummy meal.

After dinner Chase and I went to his Aunt Kim and Uncle Jim’s brand new house to check it out and use their new hot tub! I wish I’d taken pictures because this house is amazing and the hot tub was out of this world. I didn’t know they made them that cool. We will be staying with them around Xmas time so I’ll get some photos then.

Hope you all are having a good week! We are heading back to  Missoula today then tomorrow on to Seattle. I’m a little sad our last big summer vacation is coming to an end but I’ve been missing the babies so much I don’t care! I’m sure they had a fun week at their Grandpa Ronnie’s but I needs them  now.
