Ken brought the mail in and one of other neighbors had put a flyer in there saying they were having a 4th of July party and we were invited. Karen's was going to start later so we made the decision to meet and visit with Jeff, Leanna, Taylor and Kaycee their 2 girls. They moved in about a year ago and I've met Leanna once.
|A nice pool to keep the kids occupied :)|
|Jeff, his singing was awesome. A lot of older country and|
then Patriotic songs that had me crying..then right before
we left he sang "Unanswered Prayers" always brings me
Xander on his little dirt bike..cutes kid and boy can he ride!
Notice even the corn hole board is patriotic!
|A mermaid somehow made it into the pool!!|
|Getting ready to light the bar b q..|
|Matt and Xander set up a tent in a great place|
Trampoline, swings and a pool great place to play
Around 1500 we headed over. Our neighbor Stacey was there with Rylee. We visited with her and other people. Very nice party. They supplied everything except it was BYOB, which we do anyway. Leanna's hubby Jeff had karaoke set up and was singing away. He has a wonderful voice. They have a great place over there and lots of activities to keep the kiddies busy.
We left at 1700 when the party was really getting going with more friends arriving, but we already had plans at John and Karen's. Got the goodies from home and headed over.
|Baby Amelia (Millie) just gets cuter and|
cuter. She'll be 1 later this month and is
just waking now :)
|Karen (grandma) and Izzie (great grandma)|
It was a small gathering this year but always fun over there. I left about 2230, couldn't keep my eyes open. Karen gave us a ride home on her lawn mower garden cart :) Ken went back over and said he got back home about 0030. I didn't hear him come in.
This morning I woke about 0630 and thought I'd get the coffee going, but oh I'll wait a minute. 0800 was the "minute"! OH well it's Sunday and other than a ride we didn't have anything planned.
We pulled out just before 1100 and took a drive next door to show John and Karen the clean Can AM. Karen really liked it and took it for a short spin. We said goodbye and headed up and into the BLM just down the road. I drove out to the mine and then Ken took over. WE ended up with a 3.3 hour ride and almost 37 miles. OH WHAT FUN! Out here you can just ride for days if you wanted too. We didn't see another person out there the whole ride! If we would have brought lunch we would have had an even longer one. Next time!
|Can't believe how much room the back storage |
area has. We can carry this good size ice chest,
chairs and a lunch bag or whatever else!
|Pumpkin Hollow Mine, I drove to here.|
Then let Ken take over
|This mine is up the mountain. I've never been up here, the boys|
have ridden the quads to this area. Not the mine, but the
trail. Thought I took a video of our ride up, but guess not :(
|The trail from the top of the mountain going down!|
|Definitely got some road dust on it ..that's what it's made|
for right?! We're on top of the mountain by the towers..
|Looking down and out over the green fields|
|Definitely doesn't do it justice..this was quite the climb..|
|Testing out 4 wheel drive low gear! This little|
machine does an awesome job!!
It was pushing 1500 by the time I got lunch made. Afterwards I decided to get started on the blog and Ken fell asleep watching tv, which he never does. :) A nice easy Sunday!
Tomorrow morning between 1000 and 1100 we'll be testing out Walmart's Curbside Pick Up for the first time. I know dau in law Lori has been doing it since it first came into being and she loves it. So we'll see.
Have a great rest of the day!
