A great few days with Russell and Family..only missing Jacob! Picture Overload!!

Thursday morning I got a ham going in the oven for dinner. Then a broccoli salad to go along with the potato salad I had made before.  A simple but tasty dinner. Also got the meat, beans etc ready for enchiladas for Friday night. 

I ran to Raley's just to pick up a few more things..you know how it is with company you always want to be sure you have enough :) 

We knew around 1400 or so that Russell and family were at Shoetree Brewing in Carson City. They arrived here nearing 1700 or so.  Hugs all around and then inside as it was so hot outside.  We visited for a few hours and around 1900 we went outside to visit some more.  Aaron arrived on crutches as he had hurt his ankle at basketball practice.  He's a trooper though with crutches or jumping on one leg to get where he's going.  

Russell and Family..Lori, Aaron, Russell and Allissa πŸ’—


We ended up outside in the shade and it was nice. Dinner was basically serve yourself when you were hungry.  We watched the stars come out and the darker it got the more stars came out.  We had to be up late to see them, and normally we're in bed way before that time of night.  Eventually we all said our good night's and headed off to bed.  Sure is nice to have the Mansion and that's where Russell and Lori stayed. 

Friday morning I got up fairly early and got showered and ready for whenever everyone woke up.  It was breakfast sandwiches that everyone wanted. No problem there.  Dishes done and the heat was on.  This was the day we all headed over to the range to shoot some guns!  We spent an enjoyable couple of hours in the shade of the covers watching the guys along with Lori and Allissa shoot a variety of guns. Russell figures about 1000 rounds were shot.

A few rounds were fired at this point! Bob the target was still standing at this point!

Ken shooting "THE GOVERNOR" 


Bob's Dead..the first time..lol

We didn't get back home until close to 1500 and everyone was starving. Pulled out lunch meats and cut up lettuce, tomato etc so sandwiches, chips and leftover salad was the late lunch. 

Aaron shooting the 40

Russell, Aaron and Ken went out for a ride Friday afternoon.  Aaron was driving the Can Am with Russell in the passenger seat and Ken started out leading on the green quad.  They were gone for quite a while and had a great time. Don't think that smile ever left Aaron's face every time he went out as he was driving!

Russell and Aaron getting some kind of direction from Ken..


Aaron wasn't about to let a little injury stop him from going out in the Can AM! Just
hop on one foot!

I put together the enchiladas and coleslaw for dinner. It was a nice afternoon. After they got back John and Karen came over for a bit to meet them all.  After some nice chit chat they were going home to make a fire in their fire pit and invited everyone over.  After dinner we got some drinks together and headed next door. A nice night of drinks, conversation, fire and getting to know one another. Allissa headed home first, then Russell, Lori and me.  Ken followed at 0130 after visiting with John.

The sunset's started...





Aren't they cute?! Russell and Allissa...

I need a haircut..but that's my baby boy 



I love this..they took their chairs to get a better picture of the sunset πŸ’–


Allissa and Lori..

Our son Eric made this step to make it easier to get into the cabover..works well here if we want 3 on the
Can AM..



Headed next door..


Russell and Allissa, Lori's on the back..no wonder we didn't get home till late..
look when we left!!

Aaron took Allissa for a ride..

We made plans to get together for a brunch type meal on Saturday.  It was originally 1000 but actually was closer to 1100.  I made a bunch of breakfast sandwiches and Karen made biscuits and gravy.  I supplied the orange juice and she supplied the champagne for mimosas! She even set the tables up outside with fresh flowers..it was a great time!  (But I didn't get pictures) :( 
Friday night's sunset 

We came home and Russell and Aaron went back out for a ride. Ken had taken Russell and showed him where to go for another ride earlier.  Just a pretty laid back day. Lori, Allissa and I made a quick run to Raley's that was about the extent of any work haha. 

Later in the afternoon we sat outside in the shade, the days just went too quickly. Around 1830 Ken started the bar b q for Papa Burgers and they were awesome! Along with some tater tot and onion rings a very simple meal once again. 

Once our tummies settled we got out the fruit basket cake and sang Happy Birthday to Russell.  Our baby will be 42 on Monday. We enjoyed the cake and ice cream and went back outside for some more star gazing. About 2300 we all called it a night.  Ken went to bed and I cleaned up the kitchen and joined him about 2330. This was the earliest we got to bed during the time the kids were here. haha.  
Allissa was so cute on the couch in her Navy blanket she made..πŸ’™

Love this pic of father and son..Russell and Aaron..πŸ’–

We're getting ready to sing Happy Birthday and have fruit basket cake I made..

Papa and Aaron 😊


Aaron and I going for a ride 




This morning I got up around 0600 and got my shower done.  We visited with our blogger friends and then I cooked some bacon and sausage for whatever breakfast everyone wanted this morning. About 0900 life started appearing so we sat on the front porch for a while just talking.  It was already getting hot so we came inside and breakfast sandwiches for all but Allissa and me.  She had french toast and i had my egg beaters.  

Aaron wanted to go for another ride before they left so I went with him.  Had a great drive and he's really got it down!  He does enjoy it and it worked out that his right ankle wasn't the hurt one! We weren't gone too long but it was fun! 


It appears reversed but Aaron's driving..we were moving looking at our hair!
I actually saw 52 one time on the speedometer..

Getting ready to go on a ride..


Yep it was a great ride!

The kids left about 1245. Sorry to see them go, but so glad they were able to make it out here for a few days! 
Good bye..come back soon!πŸ’–πŸ’™ That's a loaner car they live in CA..

Ken took a little snooze on the couch and I read a book for awhile. It's 101 degrees outside so it sure is nice to have a/c on. Gonna be a lazy evening. 
It was such an awesome few days, we were so glad to have them come out to spend some time with us. We were happy to celebrate Russell's birthday with us as we thought if we got a lunch with them we would have been happy..This was so much better!! πŸ’–πŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ˜˜

Have a great evening..we're hoping it cools off enough to head outside for Happy Hour!
