Another Outdoor Weekend

Second weekend in a row it hasn't rained, and today it was bright and sunny out. I'm hoping the crappy weather is finally gone, and now we have the 100 degree heat of the summer to look forward to. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the weather as it is now - mid 70's and sunny since that's my favorite.

We headed up to the RC track again today, and drove for a few hours. I definitely need to get a nitro car, since my little mini flips over too easily, and I only get a certain amount of driving time because it runs on battery. I was going to drive Leif's monster truck but he was having major issues with it, so I got bored and decided to do some geocaching. First cache I found pretty easily, the second one definitely took me awhile. It was a camo cache, and I think I walked by it about 20 times. It was one of those little electric boxes on the side of a building, and it looked very very authentic so I didn't want to mess with it. I was finally ready to give up, when I started walking by it again, and this time decided to just poke it with my foot to see what would happen...and the faceplate fell off revealing the cache.

Once I got back, Bryan had shown up so he drove his Jato for awhile while Leif finally got the monster truck working so I could try it. It worked, but would hit the higher gears so I could never get it up to full speed.

As is the case with the first nice sunny day of the season where we're outside...we forgot the sunblock. Sigh. Back of neck, back of knees, and lower arms. Fortunately both of us were wearing hats, and he was out longer than I was, but both of us are definitely burned. I don't get why we forget this every year...we go out in the sun after the winter, get burned, *then* remember we had to bring the sunblock, and we don't forget it for the rest of the summer.

Ah well, at least it was nice enough to be outside today.

Hopefully the Sharks will win tomorrow too so they can make it to the next playoff round!
