Sweet Darcey arrived on Sunday and that night I went to bed with a sore throat because I haven't talked as much as I did that night in ages. Probably not since my 911 operating days. Yet it was just a delight.
Monday was a very laid back day for us. Ryder was a little out of sorts, so we ended up hanging around the house and going for a huge walk in the afternoon sun and on our walk Darcey introduced me to geocaching.
Today we were up and at 'em nice and early finding one more cache at Starbucks and then heading into Reno where we walked around a beautiful lake - 4 more caches, including one found in the centre of a roundabout.
|Here we are, the Starbucks crew.|
|Of course, Darcey spoiled Ryder with a cake pop. <3|
|Ryder spotted every duck, turtle and dog at the marina.|
Then, as if having a friend to chat, walk, and shop with couldn't get any better, she insisted that Braden and I get out for a date tonight. I can't tell you the last time we were out and undistracted, just the two of us. I purposely left my phone at home and just enjoyed a fun coffee date with Braden, dreaming together and talking about our goals. And since it was just us two, no kiddos, we were able to take the motorcycle. Another first in the last two years.
