That being said, I decided to blog instead of clean the kitchen.
Life is still good here in Okoboji. It's really feels like summer with sunny days and temps in the 80's and even 90's! We were actually feeling kind of miserable for a while because our AC wouldn't work. And without a fan, our apartment got really hot really fast. We had plans to call our property manager to see about getting it fixed when our lovely friend Dave Steffen reminded us that the switch in the fuse box probably hadn't been flipped. Embarrassed, we discovered that we were fighting the heat for no reason. With a flip of a switch we soon had cool air circulating through the apartment. As least we were saved from an even more embarrassing visit from an AC repair man! Thanks Dave!
We purchased a grill last weekend. Which consequently meant that we had burgers 3 nights in a row. Yummy, but a but repetitive. We're aiming to try steaks this weekend when the Board's are here.
Our trip to Arnold's Park on Friday was a lot of fun! We got to check out all the rides for free, which was awesome! Found out that if you sit in the back car of the roller coaster, it is extremely bumpy (as in you-need-to-see-a-chiropractor-afterwards bumpy) and you are actually lifted out of your seat a few times. Also discovered that Anthony is terrified of ferris wheels! Ha! You should have seen him... hilarious! Something about the rocking motion of the cart freaked him out. The roller coaster he handled just fine, but the ferris wheel? No way. He wouldn't sit next to me for fear of unbalancing the cart, and he held onto the pole in the middle the whole time. Didn't even enjoy the view of the lake. It's a shame. But it provided some entertainment for me. And he survived, so all is well.
I think that's about all. The Board's come tomorrow night, and we are pumped! So excited to show them where we live and to hang out and to enjoy the sunshine.
Alright, I guess it's to the kitchen I go. Wish me luck!
