after the fair, i headed home, picked up jenny and we were off to reno for the weekend. made the two hour drive (without using a gps, might i add) and got to amy & luke's in no time. hung out for a smidge, but then crashed in to bed.
saturday was tubing day. we got up (earlier than desirable... blah) and amy made pancakes. headed off to wal mart to get a few things, and then we were off to the river. we tubed the "short route" twice waiting for sarah & raymond with an ice cream & nachos break in between. during the third round, there was a rain storm coming in, and the water was a whole lot more rough than the times prior.... i have the welt on my back to prove it. no joke. anywho. we made our way back to the cars and then back to luke & amy's for hamburgers & brauts. delish. there may have also been some blowdart shooting in the kitchen. just because we could. this would then be followed by busting out the handsewing and stating to work on binding as we played rummikub. i would hope that my grandma ruth would be quite proud of my winning the first round, as it was a game i always remember playing when i stayed over at grandma myrna's house when i was younger. lisa seemed to have gotten a kick out of the fact i won while simultaneously sewing on binding. luke & amy started to teach us cribbage, but then it was decided it was hot tub time. late night turned in to crash time, and everyone was out pretty quickly.
jenny & i headed home, by way of donner mine music camp so that i could take their weekly camp photo. we headed to the traditional nyack burger king stop and then made it back home around 7 or so. all in all quite an eventful weekend, and a nice little break from the every day routine. next weeked we're at the state fair again, then i'll be shooting a wedding on saturday. busy busy busy, but that's the way i like it :)
