Three goals and (barely) alive to tell the tale.

It has been a hot second since we posted, but trust us – we’ve been working hard on checking off these goals! We’ve also been working hard on just surviving . . . let’s walk through the weekend that was.

Friday morning:

“Thoughts on dinner?”

“Let’s make the brick oven pizza.”

*high fives exchanged*

Friday afternoon:

*fire has been started*

“There’s an animal in the barn knocking things over.”

“Let’s go find it.”

*Bob is bitten by stray cat*

*Health department called*

*Told we will be called back TOMORROW with instructions*

*Uncomfortably completed unaccomplished goal #15: make a brick oven pizza*

Bob made the brick oven with bricks we have collected. The fire warmed the bricks for a couple hours and then the pizza was cooked on a baking pan, which rested on the hot bricks. Cool stuff.

Saturday:

Needless to say, we had a few things to tend to that morning, but we eagerly hit the road to Rochester to complete unaccomplished goal #14: eat garbage plates. Despite living near Rochester, we really had no clue where to try our first garbage plate. Thank heaven for people like Carli Kotula – a person who gives great medical advice, fun conversation, and sweet baby spider plants. We met at Dogtown, on Monroe Ave, for what were some good eats. We’d like to give a shout out to the kind employee who walked us through the ordering process and took our picture. (Following dinner, we went to Mercy Ambulatory Care Center for treatment).

Sunday:

Up early, early to complete unaccomplished goal #10: go on the Whirlpool Jetboat, with our friends Kara and Jaime! Now – most of us WNYers have seen the falls – maybe even been on the Maid of the Mist. Those are nice – super great family fun – but they don’t touch this kind of experience.  Holy crow. Class 5 rapids here people. We got soaked head to toe. If you’re interested in booking a trip, please click here.

 

And is the weekend that was . . .
