Josh's Birthday Weekend

Well, Ashley beat me to it, but I thought I’d post some pictures of our valley adventures. We had a great weekend, and I think Josh was happy I planned this little trip for his birthday. We got to do quite a few things and surprisingly, the rain held off the whole time (mind you, on the way home, it made up for it).
So Friday we all got off work a little early (which was nice, since we had to drive for a couple hours to get there) and we took off around…well I don’t know what time it was, but we got there around 8:30 I think. It was still light out, so we got to get a nice look at the luscious cottage that we rented. It was awesome! Decorating from I don’t know what era (straw hats with peach ribbon bows, cross stitched artwork, a couch borrowed from my great grandmother…), but it did the trick. A roof over our head was all we needed and all we got really. The sleep was less than desirable, but hey, we had satellite t.v so really… (Ashley and I later decided that maybe they should ditch the t.v idea and work more on getting nicer sleeping arrangements). We had a nice view from the deck though (if it hadn’t been foggy we could have seen the water and New Brunswick) and we had a campfire, which is really all I wanted, so score on that one. Chad and I were first to have s’mores and they were darn good. I flipping love roasted marshmallows and kinda want some right now…
Here we are, enjoying the quality time together. I wish we didn’t have to work so much, we could do this more often.
So we went to bed after watching some t.v and playing some games. When we woke up the next morning, we were excited to see that it wasn’t raining, so we packed up (after Josh and Chad had a little visit to the pool) and headed to the Upper Clements Wildlife Park. I won’t lie, it wasn't as nice as I was expecting, but the comments about feces was well worth it (thank you Josh and Chad for providing the entertainment).
Since the zoo lasted about 2 hours less than expected, we went into “town” and visited some touristy things. We had lunch at this really awful pub, which was later overlooked cause I had some darn good ice cream afterwards.
We visited Fort Anne (I think that’s what it was called) and then headed to the gold course. I think this was my favourite part of the day because of the golf carts! I think golf carts should be used in shopping malls and other areas from now on. I loved it. I had some fun golfing too, but I wasn’t very good at it. The holes were very long and sometimes it took me a good 8 strokes to even get to the green. Josh and Chad were a bit better. I am glad Ashley and I were playing about the same so I wasn’t the only one holding people back. Actually, now that I think about it, Ashley and I were like speed golfers so the boys were holding us up!
We ended out trip with a stop at the New Minas Boston Pizza (clearly the happening spot in that town) and then a scary drive back into the city (the rain was coming down in buckets…I could have cried, but I didn’t wanna look like a dork so I just tried to keep my eyes closed!) I guess we got home around 10:30ish and we were zonked. It was a nice time with good friends, and I hope we can do it again in the future. Maybe this time we can actually go tidal bore rafting (Ashley, you’re planning this one, I am never calling that place again!)

Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.

I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for rookie blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate
it.

If you're on a budget have your guests light sparklers as you depart. Instead of sending your scanned invitation, it would be great if you create your own wedding website and invite your friends and relatives. An increasing number of marrying couples (particularly those entering second or later marriages) will request that guests refrain from giving gifts.

This is easy and doesn't cost the clicker money but the problem is getting these individuals together.
