Saturday morning we left here about 0640 and headed for Cool, CA. I'd made easy breakfast burritos for the road. The drive was good as we headed to I80 which is our least favorite but with Wilson Canyon closed that was the best choice.
We got there around 1030 and the party started at 1100. A nice turnout and all 3 of our sons along with daughter in laws were there. That doesn't happen too often so it's always nice when we can see them all together.
It was a nice day, a little cool but you didn't mind being outside LOL. Eric barbecued some good hotdogs and there was nacho stuff inside along with macaroni salad and cupcakes.

|Mason and friends! All great kids. The only girl, Maddie is going to the |
Naval Academy next fall. Congrats to her!
|Our oldest son, Bryan and wife Cheryl|
|Eric, Aaron, Tom, Russell, Allissa, Lori|
|The kid who brought these said he went over the speed bumps too fast and |
they flew all over his vehicle. HaHa. Some were pretty messed up, but they sure
|All his friends drove those older vehicle pick up trucks, and cars. Rural living|
at its finest.
It was a great party, we left around 1400 so we could be home near dark. Quick trip, but well worth it for Mason's 18th birthday.
Today is his REAL 18th Birthday! Happy Birthday Mason!🎂
We had some awesome news. Grandson Jacob (who is in Italy) just separated and then reenlisted for 6 more years on the same day. He's only been in 3 but they offered him a pretty amazing incentive for doing this now. $$$. Guess they really need good air traffic controllers. In reality it only adds about another 3 years to his time. Come September he'll be stateside! Congratulations Jacob, we are so proud of you!! 😀💗

Grandson Aaron, had his ACL and Meniscus surgery yesterday and is doing as well as can be expected. He's been waiting at least 4 months for this surgery if not longer. Now the long healing begins.
Monday was pick up prescriptions in Gardnerville, but because of the road being closed it took us nearly 2 hours to get there, where normally it and hour and 15 min. Walmart was visited once again and then because we won't be home for awhile we let Ken get his fish taco fix at Sharkey's.
By the time we got home there it was too late to get things in the trailer to have a get on the road day for today. So we're running a day behind but should be able to leave first thing in the morning. 😁
We are headed to Yuma and the Howling at the Moon event. . We plan on getting there sometime Saturday as the event is Sunday and Monday. Been following it on Facebook for the last 2 years ever since Elva told me about it. Looks like fun so we'll find out! Someone called it a Senior Citizen Woodstock LOL.😂😂 After that we'll do some visiting in the area depending on where friends are at that time. We're hoping to meet up with Jim and Barb there on Sunday.
Time for a last Happy Hour for awhile with Karen and the furry kids! Have a great evening!
