We had a nice weekend for Fathers Day. My birthday happens to have landed on the day this year so it was double special.
Every Friday night in my town, there is a free concert that the city puts on. We haven't had a chance to go to it this summer...because of the Cavs games that seemed to always be landing on Fridays but this last Friday, it was game free.
Its a really nice stage on the water.
On Saturday, the plan was to hit a few things that were going on around town. Come to find out, I got the times wrong and we only made it to one thing.
The Human Society puts on a outing every year called Woodstock and Wieners.
It is a dachshund dog racing fun festival.
We saw the end of the wiener races...but I got no pictures.
We walked around for a little but didn't really stay to watch any of the other activities that were happening. It was HOT and all Em wanted to do was play on the playground.
She made two new friends though.
I love that peoples pets are able to come to things like this.
Sunday, the plan was to pack up the bikes and do a trail ride to the New River Gorge Bridge.
We stopped and ate lunch first at the Secret Sandwich Society.
Don't expect to get a table right away. There is always a 30min wait no matter what time.
All the sandwiches are named after presidents.
It was all very good. I was more excited about the chips. The homemade chips are to die for!
After lunch we headed to the trail.
Its a 3 mile hike (bike) to the spot.
Emma was not a huge fan of the bumps. She wanted to get out and walk so after a little we parked our bikes and walked the rest. Next time, Mike needs to go around the bumpy spots instead of over them and I think she will be a lot happier.
We have seen the view or this bridge on quite a few occasions, and this view was just as wonderful.
It is the third largest arch bridge in the world.
Beautiful day to be on a mountain.
Fathers Day weekend was really nice this year.
It was an extra special day when the Cavs won the finals. Mike could not have asked for a better ending....days later I am still hearing about the game.
