I don't know what the deal was yesterday, but the park was overrun with hunters. This isn't an exaggeration. The parking area they use was full except for one spot, plus there were seven vehicles parked illegally by the bridge to the island. I was also pretty sure that the boats I saw when I started out were heading out toward where I recently found a boat just before I heard gunshots coming from where they shouldn't. Because of that, I didn't take the route all the way around the perimeter that I was thinking of doing, but I still got in a good walk. And there was an amazing sunrise on the way back.

I took a lot of pictures, click through to flickr if you like.


At least there weren't any gunshots while I took this.

Not sure why this boat was anchored in the middle of the river, but it was there the entire time I was. Thought it looked cute with my car.


We got four new chairs for the small table because the ones we had were beat up, scratched up, and ugly. The boys loved the boxes they came in.


It was a pretty good food day. I made lox and bagels for breakfast and beef fajita mac and cheese for dinner.

Our new washer and dryer came! The bathroom renovation is so close to being done.

Whoa those look like enormous machines. How big a load can you fit in there? Also what is the drawer for?

I think the capacity is 4.5 cubic feet, not sure if that's a lot. The pedestals were sold separately and their main function is to raise the machines so you don't have to bend to reach in. The drawers are storage, perfect for detergent, bleach, and fabric softener. Nice for a room like this, where it's not a dedicated laundry room and you don't want the clutter. Not that it would be an issue in this room, as there's still room under the sink, plus a tall cabinet. Garrett's mainly just happy to no longer kneel.

Another cool thing I don't think I mentioned is that we kept the original washer and dryer in the garage, and now have two of each! Could be a nice selling point if we ever move out, especially since our lower level is a complete mother-in-law unit and the tenant could use the garage machines. And in the meantime, we can do laundry even faster if we choose to.

I'm just glad we have laundry upstairs where the clothes are and that we don't have to use machines in the filthy garage.

I like the photos, and the new laundry machines look great!
