Although the Hunters don't shut down the entire place for weddings, there have been several wedding parties come out for pictures, as I posted a couple weeks ago. On THIS day we had the pre-wedding party show up.
Twenty family members watched as pictures were taken of each couple. When the last couple took center stage by the water wheel, the guy reached down quickly and untied his shoe. It was the old "I need to tie my shoe" trick. She waited patiently when POW!! He was on one knee with ring in hand.
She said yes and everyone cheered!!
Although not as busy as usual yesterday, we whipped out 360 hot dogs and so many shaved ice I lost count. We were running out of everything ... cookies, fruit snacks, chips ... and were becoming pretty inventive at making the snack bar look full. An entire pallet of decorated cookies disappeared in record time this year. Hopefully when I arrive back at the Patch this morning, we will have some replacement supplies.
Here's another section of the Time Travel Tractor. Meet Sneaky Pete on the left. Gold miner extraordinaire, he's a little sloppy with his TNT. If you sit in the second train car, you just might get a tad bit wet when the pond explodes.
This is his partner, No-Name and his dog, Dog. Dog likes playing the fetch game with the bones at his feet. There's a donkey for packing supplies and several other critters hanging out around the sluice box and mine entrance. The red barrel is full of TNT. FIRE IN THE HOLE!!!
Lucky me, today I either have become sick or overwhelmed with dust and smoke. Someone was burning their trash yesterday and it was all heading our direction. I may just have to call in sick on Monday ..... we shall see.
Total miles walked to date: 215.69
I walked 6.74 miles, mostly in the snack bar.
Today, I think Benadryl will be my friend.
