|Happy 49th Birthday to our first born, Bryan! 💙
|Just about 49 years ago. He was about 3 months old here 💙
Ken was able to get the whole roof covered with roofing tin on Friday morning. 😁 We need a couple more pieces as he wanted the roofing over the back of the structure covered. If he had put the front posts in further we wouldn't need to do it, but he wanted it as big as possible. We'll get that done after coming home from Bryan's house.

|Another piece of facia board is needed along with 2x4's for framing the
He actually was able to start framing in the red window, but we need more 2x4's so we'll get that later this week too. 😀
He brought the Mansion over and we got it loaded up and ready to go.
Sunday morning we left home about 0900 and arrived in Lincoln, CA just about 1300. 4 hours so not a bad drive.
We checked out Bryan and Cheryl's lovely new to them home on wheels. It's a Montana 5th wheel and it's gorgeous. Perfect for the two of them for now along with the two dogs 😀
We met up with Renette and spent the afternoon visiting under the back porch area where it was much cooler than out in the sun.
Adam and Erin got here about 1500 hrs after spending some time in the Sacramento area looking for a camera lens for Adam.

Cheryl made some yummy stuffed bell peppers and salad for dinner. After deciding what to do on Monday we called it a night around 2230.
Monday morning we were going to visit with Ken's mom in Carmichael, but she needed to go to the emergency room as she'd had some problems over night. Diane (Ken's sister) was on her way over to take her there. We found out later that they admitted her to run some tests.
We headed out and took Bryan to lunch at Cafe Delicias in Roseville. Cheryl had decided to stay home so she could work on Bryan's birthday dinner for Tuesday.
Later we just hung out under that porch again, as it's really nice out there. I had made a pork roast, mashed potatoes, gravy and green bean casserole. Adam stopped by after returning the lens he bought the day before and was able to have dinner with us.
|Pork roast had hardly no fat and was yummy! I took the juices and veggies, and
made gravy after pureeing the veggies.
We ended up with a much later night about 0030 (1230 am) before we called it a night :)
Tuesday was Bryan's 49th birthday so we just hung around. I had made a breakfast casserole so we enjoyed that. Cheryl made spaghetti and meatballs for dinner and a yummy chocolate cake. We sat in their 5th wheel for a while in the evening. What a nice place!
|Guess who wrapped Bryan's gift? Not me!
Wednesday morning we got ourselves ready to head home. We wanted to take Bryan and Cheryl to breakfast so we loaded into Cheryl's car and headed for Lincoln. It used to be just a small town when she was growing up there, but boy has it grown and still growing outward. Signs everywhere of new sub divisions and starting from the low $500,000's!
We had an awesome breakfast and yes we'd definitely go back there again!
|They're open for breakfast and lunch. Great food and service
|Cute old town
We got home and after a bit, hugs goodbye and we headed out. We did hear as soon as we were on the road that Grandma was headed home too. We wanted to get the Mansion home, and here in the next little bit we'll run over to do a one day turnaround and visit with her.
|I was surprised by this adorable gift from Cheryl. Awesome night light! 💗
|Cheryl has quite the garden growing!
|Had to get a picture of Daisy since she wasn't in the family picture 💙
|Cheryl surprised me with this too! 💙💙 Thinking it will look awesome in
my new Kountry Kitchen with some aprons hanging from it!
We got home around 1600. We didn't unload much and actually had Happy Hour out in the Mansion and dinner too. Unloading, that's what tomorrows are for right?!
Today was the day for unloading and getting things done. Ken got the Mansion back to it's parking spot and hooked up the 12 foot utility trailer as we're heading for Lowe's and Walmart tomorrow. Gotta get him back to work. LOL.
|Ken was greeted with this on our kitchen table yesterday. Thank you John and
Karen. Bryan got him a case of Hoppy IPAs so he's set for quite awhile 💙😁
|I ordered this cook stove from Wayfair on Monday, it was here yesterday.
We'll have the Blackstone griddle and this stove in the kitchen 😁
