(almost) Wordless Wednesday

This past week was a busy one.  We started it out in Bakersfield at my in-laws and then I took the train to my mom’s for the weekend.  Not much in the way of pictures, but I did take a few:

My tray table on the train.  I love that you get to leave them down at all times (versus planes where you have to put them up for take off and landings) and the seats are so much more spacious on the train.  If it were cheaper and more convenient, I would take the train a lot more.  But, from our hometown, it only comes through at 3 a.m., so you have to take an Amtrak bus (which isn’t horrible, but it isn’t the train) then get off and switch to a train in Sacramento.  And it is also expensive if it isn’t just me traveling – the car is much cheaper and more convenient.  Especially our Prius!

We also had a chance to go out on the lake in our boat on Monday.  I must admit that I like being on the boat because of moments like this:

The problem is that when our DD is along for the ride and my hubby is fishing, these are exactly that – only moments.  I have to keep DD entertained (we did get a chance to go swimming in the lake, but it is tiring) and we’re constantly moving to new fishing spots.  If I could spend an afternoon like this, it would be the best.  But, DD had more fun this time than last time.

Overall, it was a good day and a nice last trip to the lake before my hubby leaves for seven weeks for work.  🙁  By the time he gets back, there may be no more lake left with the way the drought is going here in Nor Cal.

These are from a year and a half ago and it has only gotten worse since then.

So, there is my last week in some pictures.  Are you sharing on Wordless Wednesday?  Post a link in the comments below.  I’d love to come by!  Have a great week!

  1. Best wishes with the drought. I hope this is not the new normal.

  2. Did you just change your background? Or am I just that oblivious?? Looks like Bean had a great time.

    • I did not change my background. 🙂 I did change a widget over in the sidebar, but that’s it. 🙂 Bean did have a great time. Thanks for stopping by!
