The Great Outdoors

Another weekend has come to a close and this one was pretty awesome. Kyle only had a few meetings to finish up for this rotation and he was home free.

He had to miss a 5k on Saturday morning, but I still went and had an amazing time. It was a 5k benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis foundation and I ran the race in honor of my cousin, Brad, who passed away in 2014. I had no ambitions of running fast or placing, I just wanted to run for him. Well, imagine my surprise when I ended up placing 2nd overall for females!

It was such a special event and it made me so proud to honor him in that way. Kyle grilled steaks as a treat for me that night and it was delicious.


Kyle had an early meeting yesterday morning but afterwards we packed up lunch and headed up to Kisatchie State Park. We hiked roughly 5 miles on the Lakeshore Trailhead. It was absolutely beautiful.


We had an amazing view of Kincaid Lake, there were quite a few people out there boating which was awesome.


We can't wait to go back and explore the area even more. We are heading up to Nachitoches today for lunch and to do a little shopping. 

It has been so nice to spend time with Kyle after only spending a total of 5 hours with him over the last month.

Hope you all had a great weekend.
