Now That Was a Weekend and MMMM

I finally feel like I had a weekend.  It was busy, but fun and we got to enjoy the great outdoors.
So what did we do this weekend?  We went and bought another sit on kayak.  Yep, Saturday was a trip to Cabelas for a kayak, a backpack for Turbo and some other sundries. 
Traffic was awful and we ended up going home on the old highway.  This took us through several towns and we did stop for lunch at Red Robin.  The food was good and the boys were pretty good too.
We are now the proud owners of:
Three kayaks.
Sunday we went to play with our new toys:
Trying out the true kayak.

Bruiser swimming

Turbo paddling around.
We all came home tired and a bit sunburned. It was a good day.
Sadly this morning Bruiser woke up with the fluish thing Turbo had last week, so he's home with Nick resting and trying to get better.
So how was your weekend?

And now for MMMM.  This week the theme is musicians from your hometown or state. I am from Wyoming.  WE haven't produced very many star musicians.  The one I can thing of off the top of my head is Chris LeDoux, a former rodeo star and western singer. He was well known on the rodeo circuit and came to national prominence when he was mentioned in an early Garth Brooks song.  After that he recorded a song with Garth.

So there you have it, Wyoming's contribution to music.  A small population--the smallest of any state--will do that for you.

I like looking at the water and see the activity of boaters, but I have no desire to be out on it. I'm a scaredy Cathy. :D Looks like y'all had a good time. Sorry to hear Bruiser isn't feeling well. I enjoyed listening to your home state pick. Have a tunetastic week!

Looks like a pretty awesome weekend. I need a get-away-to-the-water weekend.

I liked the pieces of music you had to offer this week. I am enjoying "touring" around to the different states.

What an awesome weekend you had! I love kayaking - not that I've done it in recent years, but still. ;)

I'm surprised there aren't more musicians from Wyoming, especially considering the (perceived) cowboy population there. ;) Loved your selections, though! :)

Luvin' your new toys! Looks like a grand time. Hmmm I'm surprised too that you didn't have more singers from Wyoming, but maybe they all went to Tennessee to make their fame. Now these are some down home country songs. Great job. Have a rockin' weekend! Thanks for joinin' us y'all!

I didn't know you were from Wyoming, but I'm not surprised that your star sings country. I've never been to your state. Maybe one day.
