Car Show, Adam Visits, Mexican Food, Can Am ride, A good week!

Adam came to visit this week. He spent a day hiking in 
Bridgeport, CA. Found this beautiful mountain lake on his
10,000+ foot hike! 

 Well, that week sure went by fast! Last Saturday we attended the yearly car show in Yerington. It was warm, but certainly not as warm as many others. I believe it was the biggest car show ever since we've been here. The closest to it was during COVID and we had a "Protest Car Show". People came from all over for that one! 

We loaded up the back end of the car with some mimosa goodies and enjoyed those in our insulated cups that Seth and Holly got us. 

Nothing better than ice cold champagne! ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿพ

Sunday was our regular Champagne Sunday and was greatly enjoyed. 

All the goodies on cauliflower pizza crust YUM. 
Tomorrow it's burgers and fries LOL. 

In the afternoon we took a Can AM ride up into the BLM to see if we could figure where Night In The Country was moving to. Local farmer donated 160 acres to the venue so they've been working hard to get it ready for the end of July. Beautiful day for a ride.

Think we found the area! It'll be packed with people
in about a month! Benefits the Boys and Girls Club!

Monday was Ken's bi yearly lung appointment and it turned out great. Next one in December. 

We did some running around and then had to pick up prescriptions in Gardnerville. That's a mess for the next 3 to 6 months with construction and resurfacing of the roads. So we'll only go there when we absolutely have too! 

We stopped at Rosie's Mexican food in Wellington on the way home. Our new go to when we're coming from Gardnerville. YUM! 

Pictures don't do it justice, as I've never had a such a HUGE
burrito. I brought a lot of the plate home and Adam
had it for Monday night dinner. 

Same with Ken's chimichunga ! 

Grandson Adam arrived Monday evening after work and spent most of the week with us ๐Ÿ˜ 

Tuesday he took off for a few hours and did the Wilson Canyon hike. He requested "Papa Burgers" for dinner so that's what he got. Basically homemade 1/2 pound burgers with all the fixings ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Papa burgers with anaheim chilis 

Wednesday he was gone most of the day hiking a trail over at Bridgeport, CA. It went up over 10,000 feet. Came back a little sunburned even after sunscreen but he loved the hike. 

Thursday was a laid back day. We left the house about 1230 and took him to lunch at Rosie's. He loved it. Back home, an afternoon and evening of movies and relaxation. 

Friday morning I was up by 0415 and made him a sandwich for his lunch at work. He left here about 0450 to be at work in the Pollock Pines area at 0800. We really enjoyed having him ๐Ÿ˜Š

Later in the morning we headed for Carson City to pick up a part for Bryan's wood stove at Lowe's. We've got the rest on order from Lowe's, hoping they come in soon. 

A visit with John and Karen was in order, so that's how we closed out the night.

Great Nephew Phoenix is really growing up. Hope to 
get my hands on him mid July ๐Ÿ’™

It's 97 as I'm writing so a dunk in the stock tank is on order this afternoon. Clear blue skies! I see my kids in Arkansas are 97 with a feels like 104. Oh the humidity, guess it could be worse.  Ken just put two Corona Lights in the freezer so time to get the swim suit on! 

Have a great weekend!
