Happy Birthday Cheryl! Money Pit is gone! Nice lunch in CA

Saturday morning we set the alarm for 0330 so we could get ourselves ready and get on the road around 0500.  We actually left about 6 minutes early.  I made Ken two breakfast burritos and 2 egg beaters and cheese for me that we were going to eat on the road.  We haven't done fast food in a few years now and didn't want to do it now. 
Early morning drive..

We had a good drive over the hill taking highway 50 to Hazel Ave and then meandered our way to K.C.'s place in Rio Linda.  He was happy to see us and we enjoyed a nice visit with him, Sierra and little Rylee Mae.  She just turned 3 and is just adorable.  Unfortunately got too caught up in talking I didn't take any pictures :(   

The Money Pit once again lived up to its' name.  Ken went to start the truck to drive it off the trailer and the batteries were dead! Ken felt bad and K.C. just laughed.  Ken offered to deduct the price of new batteries from the price but K.C. wouldn't hear of it.  He knows he's getting what he wants and it was a good deal. Hugs all around and we headed out. 
On our way home...I80

Boreal Ski area..there were people on the slopes..

We headed over to Garcia's Mexican Restaurant where we were meeting Eric, Christina, Mason and his friend Jackson for lunch.  Adam showed up too. Hopefully next time we can meet up with Russell's family.  We had our favorite server, Chris who doesn't ask what we want to drink just shows up on the table. We had lovely conversation and a great meal. About 1400 we hugged and said our good byes.  

We headed home via I80 and got here about 1730.  Karen had called and they had a good fire going and invited us over.  It was a late Happy Hour or 4! A nice night with wonderful neighbors.  Home and to bed! 

Sunday morning we awoke close to 0700. All that fun last night made us tired! Our usual routine and then time for breakfast. Ken wanted his almond flour waffle and 2 fried eggs.  I tried a new low carb pancake recipe that was delicious.  This one included a little cream cheese in the batter. YUM. 

A slow day here at home. I got under the cabinets and cleaned some things out. A few other chores and now just hanging out watching some tv.  Ken's going to bar b q some hot links and I'm making broccoli tots..sounds yummy doesn't it. 
Jacob and his new to him car..

Mason and his cousin Natalie..she turned 14
last month and he turns 14 on the 31st..so they
combined parties last night with Christina's

Cute pic of Mason and his mom, Christina

Tomorrow it looks like we'll be heading to Carson City to drop off our older Honda Generator and get it fixed. Be dropping by the bank to deposit the Money Pit $$$.

Last, but not least Happy Birthday to our Daughter in law, Cheryl! Sounds like she had a pretty good day with a Mexican Lunch and a new heated throw she's enjoying this afternoon! 

Have a wonderful evening! 


  1. Happy Birthday Cheryl.
    Looks like a nice drive. Some great pics of all that snow. Brrr...too cold for me. I love that the truck wouldn't start, that is too funny.
    Some great family pictures. Happy 14th birthday to the young folks as well.

    1. Yeah that Money Pit is something else! We don't like to sell to friends for those reasons..but KC is different, Ken tells EVERYTHING that is wrong w truck and he still wanted it. Of course 97 diesel is the last year that doesn't have to be smogged in CA..so its very desirable. Thanks for the wishes for Cheryl and kids :)

  2. Good to hear the truck is gone. Less stress for all! Who knows, new batteries just may be the last and only thing it needs. Might run real well for KC. Good to hear he has a sense of humour!

    1. We're hoping that's the last thing for a long time for him. He does, Ken was more upset, KC wasn't at all..

  3. Really nice pictures of the mountains in the early morning. Glad to hear you took today to relax.

    There was quite a concert in Nashville last night. I put a link in. We looked into tickets but didn't go. Probably should've.

  4. Thank you..love that drive in the early am..makes me feel like I'm on vacation and then we end up in CA!!! Darn..LOL...OH Don, you should've gone! Willie and George together!! Along with all the others...It says it'll air on A and E so if you get that channel you can see it :)

  5. Happy Birthday Cheryl. Sound like you guys are keeping busy as always.
    So nice that the money pit is gone and you even got a few bucks for it as well

  6. Very true, always something to do. We could have gotten more selling it outright I"m sure but we're happy and KC is happy and no hassle :)

  7. Busy busy. Happy Birthday to Cheryl from me too. Glad your money pit is gone.

    1. Thanks Patsy. We're glad it's gone too for sure! Good times and lots of money over the years.

  8. Pictures of the snow on the mountains are very pretty from a distance...lol
    Glad your money pit has found a new home.
    Understanding why Ken needed to call the doctor you just know when it is time. Hoping he is able to get the surgery scheduled soon but also hoping not to soon and you guys can make it down for a few days.

    1. We're hoping so too Deb! We're happy Money Pit is gone too! We had a lot of good times in the last 7 years..but expensive times too..
