I texted him about 1/2 hour before I was going to be there. He was still sleeping when I got there, but he got ready quickly and out the door we went.
|Aaron's here 💙|
Since they are closer to Highway 80 I decided to head home that way. I stopped in Auburn and got him a couple of breakfast sandwiches from Mc Donalds and we carried on. When we got to the Truckee area I got off the freeway on Highway 267 to check out Martis Creek Lake Campground. We've been by it many times but never stopped. The lake is nice, catch and release only and a good lake for kayaking. They have the campground closed :( so we didn't get to look at it. Oh well.
A few pics from earlier in the week.. :)

Back on the freeway, we hit a few slowdowns as they are working on the road. At one point it merged into one lane and what a mess that was, put us behind about 30 minutes. Too many trucks and people on that freeway, don't think i'll go that way again!
We made it home near 1500 or so. Hot, hot, hot! 99 degrees and Ken was outside working on the "toy hauler". A lot more work than he intended, but gotta give it to him he's doing his best to make it work. Donna, don't think we'll be meeting you in Utah as KOA would never let us in! LOL...no kidding. Don't think Quartzsite will be a problem though! HAHA...
We had a nice evening. Aaron had ham, mashed potatoes and green beans for dinner and ice cream later in the evening. I told Ken that Aaron definitely has Phillips blood in his system. Mashed potatoes and Ice Cream proves it right there. haha.
Wednesday morning I ran to Raley's for a few things and to pick up a couple that I left behind the other day. Got some things done and Aaron appeared about 1100. Got him his breakfast sandwiches and OJ and his day began.
Ken had been working on the toy hauler, got the cabover situated on the trailer and discovered he needed plywood and 2x6's to build a platform for the cabover. It's too short in the front for the side by side to be able to go under the upper area. A trip to Lowe's was needed.
Not the best video, but gives you some idea :)
Ken said we had about an hour until we would leave, so Aaron and I went out for a ride. He's a good driver, I know he enjoys the rides more with his dad, this grandma is not as adventurous LOL. Russell's going to have to come out more often so they can play together!
Ken and I headed out, Aaron opted to stay home and play video games. No problem.
We got what we needed and headed right back. Coming into Silver Springs we hit a pretty good dust storm. Winds were up and lots of black clouds.
Aaron was in his room playing video games and had a little snack. Not too exciting around here, but he seems happy!
|This was his evening snack, but also his afternoon snack 💙 A little blurry but you get the idea!|
Once the toy hauler gets done, we're planning a little trip with him to Sand Mountain and some different riding. I offered up a trip to June Lake renting a cottage and some kayaking, but he chose Sand Mountain, not surprising. 😉
Lori texted last night and said, no football until Dec 7th ( poor kids) and no basketball next week..so we'll see what else we can come up with to do.
So, this being Thursday once Aaron gets up we'll go for another ride. Ken plans on working on the toy hauler, it'll be interesting to say the least. I need to do a little cleaning up in the Mansion, as it goes for warranty work in the am. Later there's a birthday party next door for Sophia (5) and Amelia (1). We'll head over for a bit to see the girls.
|Way too low in the front for the Can AM to fit under|
|He's built a frame that the cabover will sit on..it will be tall|
but under height specs..
|You won't be able to miss this once he's finished! 😊|
Adam texted pictures yesterday, he spent his days off visiting Shasta and Lassen National Park.
|Lassen National Park..|
|My favorite picture!|
Seth and Holly had pictures done when he was home for the 4th of July weekend. I'm posting a few the next couple of blogs 💖

Here's a little something interesting that went round this last week or so..
Google and put any 3 numbers in your phone, along with "new cases"...
Example : 762 new cases.. see what pops up, worked with every number I inputted..I've done it with 4 numbers and it pops up too..hmmmm..
Time to head for the birthday party! Have a great afternoon!
