Happy 45th Eric, Happy 21st Adam, home, and now back over the hill!

Sunday morning we got ourselves going and after having a beautiful drive down Highway 50 we arrived at Eric's house around 1400.  Our oldest son, Bryan was over visiting Eric on Eric's 45th birthday. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ˜Š

The waterfall on highway 50 is really flowing..

Bryan, Eric and Dad...


We got the Mansion parked and visited with Bryan, Eric and Mason. Bryan headed home after a bit and we continued visiting. The sunshine was nice.  Christina came outside after awhile not realizing we were there.  Some more visiting and then Eric barbecued some awesome steaks and pork!  I contributed some potato salad and mashed potatoes (Mason's request).  YUMMY.  We don't have steak very often but this mouth watering. ๐Ÿ˜‹ Then it was time for cake.  I had made a carrot cake that I made last year and if I do say so myself, it turned out yummy! 

After dinner Eric started a fire outiside, so more visiting continued! 

Monday morning after making breakfast for the boys (Ken, Eric and Mason) we headed out to Roseville and Total Wine (yay at least they're open in CA).  WE headed up to Bryan's for a bit and then back to Eric's for the night.  We had a nice earlier evening as Eric had to work on Tuesday.  

Tuesday morning we were up fairly early. We were ready to leave by 0830 and Mason came with us to Bryan's house.  We were headed there to celebrate our grandson Adam's 21st birthday.  

Once we got the Mansion parked there, I made breakfast for everyone.  So nice to have the space and counter top to make it easily! Adam opened his presents and then he and Erin headed out and so did Mason and I .  We went to pick up a few things for the "party".  I took Mason over to the high school so he could pick up his work for his construction class. Then to Mar Val and back to Bryan's.

Eric stopped by after work to pick up Mason so he stayed for a bit.  Bryan barbecued Tri Tip that turned out awesome. We've been eating way too good these days! 

I headed for bed around 2200 leaving Ken, Bryan and his friend Jonathan up till the wee hours. LOL.  Adam enjoyed his birthday only having a few adult beverages. 
Not too much of a party group...Erin, Adam, Papa, Me, Jonathon, Mason, Eric, Bryan and Jake..only 1 missing is
Cheryl and she took the pic..

Wednesday morning once we got up and going it was time for breakfast.  I made breakfast sandwiches for most everyone.  We took our time and got out of there about 1200.  A nice drive home.  We unloaded and then enjoyed the rest of the afternoon/evening.  Turkey burgers for dinner and then relaxed until bedtime. 

Thursday we headed for Home Depot in Carson City with a stop at Walmart first.  Groceries bought for the weekend. :)  We're heading for Bryan's house Saturday morning. Ken's helping to put up a fence for the chickens. 

We picked up our new little retro fridge for the kitchen and bought a few plants for the garden. Boy are they expensive! If I do this next year I'll start with seeds early in the year growing them inside. We'll see how this year goes :) 

Erin and Adam ..she's a keeper ๐Ÿ’™

My new little fridge..only 45 inches tall,..but perfect..

By the time we got home it was after 1400.  Time for a quick snack and Ken was out to bring in the fridge, while I ddi something with the table and bowls. What else do you do, but move them to the dining table, in the way haha.  This way I'll get my shelf quicker LOL..

About 1700 we walked next door and enjoyed Karen and family.  Lynzee's daughter Danielle is headed back to CA this am.  She works for Starbucks and had been off for a month (with pay).  Time to go back to work for her. 

Friday morning I woke about 0415, started the coffee at 0445. Woke the hubby at 0500 to get our day started as this is our only day at home, before heading back over the hill tomorrow. 

After a way too busy day yesterday we are running late this Saturday morning.  We are headed over to Bryan's house so we can celebrate Bryan's 47th!! birthday tomorrow. Today is about a little fence work over there.  Just wanted to get this caught up as I have no clue where the week went!!

Have a great Saturday! 


  1. Whew!!! I'm tired just READING about your trips. How fun to be 21. I remember it well. It's so nice you have lots of family to celebrate with. I do love your little red fridge! That's a keeper!!

    1. We are blessed to have our family for sure! Hard to believe how fast these grandkids have grown, but glad we're around to see it. Yeah I love the fridge too. :)

  2. Nice to be able to celebrate both Birthdays while enjoying a road trip.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Yep Rick we love the trip down Highway 50 over the hill!

  3. First they are a cute couple Erin and Adam. The little red refrigerator is really cute and I am worn out and all I did was read your blog...LOL You two have been busy but it all sounds like a good kind of busy with family and then friends. Love the pictures of the mountains. Take care and travel safe. Hugs to you both.

    P.S. Glad to see you in the picture, pretty in pink.

    1. Thank you. they do seem happy together. Yes, it was busy so I lose track of days for sure! Looks like we'll be home more this next week. See about getting the garden planted. We all know I hate having my picture taken, but once in awhile I guess it's got to happen :) Thank you Deb!
