All five grandsons are here!!

Yesterday morning I left here about 0600 and headed over to CA to  pick up Seth, Mason, Jacob and Aaron for a few days.  Got to Auburn just a little after 0900 and headed for our Wells Fargo branch to close out our safe deposit box.  We got a call a few weeks ago saying the branch was closing and we needed to close the box.  Earlier this week we went to Reno and opened a new box at US Bank.  So I get there and the branch isn't closing.  The one in downtown Auburn is...hmmm...so she looks it up and it says our branch is downtown.  Uhh...no it's not.  She finds our account and anyway after about half an hour of her on the phone with whoever handles safe deposit boxes she tells me there's nothing they can do until Tuesday, because it will take that long to change the address in the system..really?!  In the days of computers, it will take that long..and because we are closing it just to close it..no pro rating it..So I got all our stuff out and I'll be back next Feb or so and then close it out..Geezz...but got our stuff and a new one in Reno so that's all that matters..

Christina got there with the boys and then we headed to Antelope to pick up Jacob and Aaron.  We got there about 1100 and headed out.  Stopped near Placerville and grabbed a bite to eat, then just enjoyed the drive home after that.  Traffic was heavy but not as bad as you would think.  

Adam left his house about 1520 to head over and he made good time.  He's liking the fact that he can drive over here by himself.  

He got here and was starving, just as I was making pulled pork sandwiches for the other boys..so good timing!  

Turns out our friend Steve, who passed away last December had given Ken some fireworks, so what better time to bring out a few.  After dinner we went outside and they had fun with these things.

Today, at various times of the morning the kids got up.  Aaron and Mason never went to sleep, so they were the first to have breakfast..Lastly was Adam at about 1100.  

I made some cookies and brownies and then we headed for Scolari's to get some things.  Got back home and now the boys are  in town playing some basketball.  Adam drove them all.  Amazing to see him pull out of the driveway with his cousins along with him.  They are all growing up way too quickly.  

This weekend in town is Night in the Country.  Used to be a little family event where they would bring in a few country acts.  Now it's huge! People come from all over to our little town to listen to country acts, drink a lot of alcohol, show a lot of skin and have a rip roaring time.  A lot of locals pick this weekend to get out of town!  
Normally an empty field..

Looks like tomorrow we will head to Carson City to the Nevada State Museum for a few hours.  Our neighbor Joe, told Ken this would be a worthwhile place to visit for a day trip.  We plan on heading to Bridgeport for a few days on Monday.  The boys are chomping at the bit to go fishing.  Either Thursday or Friday i'll run them home.  Sure is nice having them all here at the same time!  

The ping pong challenge is on!  

Adam's green quad, needs a little tlc and it'll be up and running!
