Update and a Fall Outing

Update: ******** I'm excited to report that Mr. Ken's surgery went well! We had to be at the hospital at 5:30 am! We didn't leave the hospital until 3:30 pm. LONG DAY! The Dr. was pleased and we'll know more on Wednesday. Hopefully everything was taken care of. We really appreciate ALL your thoughts and prayers for us. They seemed to work! Yea. Ken asked me to Thank you also. He appreciates your support. One day soon, he'll do his own post here. ***************************** Friday Night: ************** After a rest, we climbed in the car and drove two streets over to watch Fireworks! Yes, I said Fireworks. Our city put on a display to kick off the 24th annual Chili Challenge.
*******************************
Saturday Morning:
After being cooped up in the
hospital all day Friday-we
decided a little fresh air and
a small amount of exercise
was in order. So we went
to the Chili Challenge for a
little bit.
The Chili Challenge is a contest
that decides the BEST chili.
Each team makes their recipe
and on Saturday for $2, visitors
get a plastic spoon and they go
booth to booth to sample any
and all the chili they want. Some
teams also make Salsa and Wings
to sample.
It can be an all day affair but we
lasted for about an hour. I think
this year had the most booths
covering 1 block and a half plus
if you went over to the Community
Center parking lot there was MORE!
Below are some pics from the fun.
We had a beautiful Fall weekend
and Ken is feeling better each day!
Again we want to THANK each
and every one of you for you
thoughts, prayers, love and
support. We still would appreciate
continued prayers for total healing
and NO MORE stones.
~Keep on Dreaming~

  4. Chili, the hotter the better!!! What a fun outing. I'm just thrilled Mr. Ken felt up to spendin' a little time there. I sounds like quite the little chili marathon.

    At Sarah Grace's birthday party we had four crocks of chili. Mild, spicy, hot and muy caliente'( Whoa, that's hot,hot,hot!). Let's just say I scraped the bottom of the pot on the latter without a cringe watchin' Geek Son gasp for air! Heeehehehe!

    Tell Mr. Ken to be good and take care and my prayers are with him and you dear gal have a most marvelous week!! :o)

  5. Poor Mr.Ken! No fun at all! My brother n law just went through the same thing with kidney stones.
    At least you were able to get for awhile and get some fresh air.
    Big hugs, Elizabeth

  9. I love the idea of a Chili Festival! I love chili but don't have a recipe to call my own. :)

    I'm glad Ken's better and stronger. Let's hope it continues! TGIF tomorrow!
