Got there and picked it up quickly. Ok what to do now? We drove over to Carson City and visited Home Depot to check out their flooring. Actually found one I liked, but it was really cheap. I'm sure I'd pay tons more o have it installed than what this floor was worth. We decided to keep looking and see if we could find something similar but better quality.
After that we headed to Minden and CVI (Carson Valley Inn). We asked about Carmen but still no date on her return. :( We had a delicious lunch and then I drove home (no 1/2 carafe for me)..haha.
We got home and a little later headed next door for Happy Hour with Jack and Mugsy. It was really windy and cold so we went inside and sat with Mugsy for a bit. We left our leftovers with Jack so he was happy :)
Friday morning I got a text from our Grandson Mason asking if he and his friend Jackson could come over for Easter Break. I said "of course" so I'm headed out Monday morning to pick them up. :) Happy Grandma and Papa too. I tried to get Aaron but he has basketball practice and they are in LA for tournaments on Friday. We'll play it by ear with the boys but I said i'd take them home on Friday as that is our son Eric's 44th birthday (Mason's dad). April is a busy month with birthdays for us. Eric on the 19th, Grandson Adam on the 21st he'll turn 20 and Bryan on the 26th..he'll turn 46! Wow they're getting old! Hah.
Friday was spent around the house, it was a nice day! Neighbor Joe came by in the evening and we made plans to have breakfast at Dini's on Saturday morning. Then we headed over to Karen's for Happy Hour with our buddies Jack and Mugsy. The four of us hung out for a while.

Saturday morning we got ourselves ready and had a great breakfast and conversation with Joe, Stacey, Rylee and Susan (Stacey's mom). We watched Pioneer Woman before we left. She made a Pasta Primavera Salad cold dish. Looked so yummy with tons of veggies. Ken said he wanted it to go with the bar b q chicken he was going to make for dinner. Your wish is my command..haha. I ran to Raley's to get what we didn't have and then spent a while cutting veggies. Because I don't eat noodles I took a zuchinni and used the spiralizer to make zoodles. Perfect. Both dishes were awesome along with the bar b q chicken.

Karen got home near 1200 and invited us over for a fire. Once Ken was done bar b quing we headed over. Had a great fire and conversation along with a few drinks we came home just before dark. We had our delicious dinner and called it a night!
|Wonderful grilled chicken!|
|Our beautiful sunset!|
Sunday morning we slept in until almost 0700! Doesn't happen very often, but it's Sunday right? Coffee, visiting with bloggers to see what they're up to and another Pioneer Woman. This time she had a Pasta Primavera dinner...oh no!
We decided to go ahead and spray the weeds around here. 21 gallons of weed spray to be exact! We hooked the sprayer to Ken's quad and I drove and he used the wand behind. When he started hurting we traded spots. I kept telling him to go inside and rest, but did he listen?! NO! We finished and then ran water through the sprayer a few times and we're done for now. Hoping the weeds die and in a few weeks we can get what we didn't if need be.

While he rested I ran to Raley's to get some Kid Foods since we'll have two teenagers for a few days! When I got back I made the Pasta Primavera for Ken and I added some chicken breast to it. Looks good.

|Eric took the boys fishing yesterday..Mason, left|
Seth right! No fish were caught though..
So tomorrow I'm hoping to leave somewhere between 0630 and 0700 to get the boys! Happy they want to come even if there won't be any gun shooting and quad rides since Papa is out of commission but we'll find something to do for sure!
