Slacking Off

I have been slacking - or ignoring this blog. But it has been a busy month!

Spent Father's Day weekend in Nevada with DD #2 - DD#1 and her family came up too!

Friday we celebrated Grandson #2's birthday a week late. They played - we went out to dinner - then back to the house for cake and a pinata. And then the 2 older boys from the CA family had a sleepover with the Nevada grands.

On Saturday we rode the steam train from Carson City to Virginia City - and back again. Most of us had fun!

No, I did not leave my bra - none of us did - mid day, no drinking, no wish to go braless on the rest of a hot day!
Yard deco....not sure about the Acme Bomb Co - did it make this deco? Or are they wishing it would blow up and take it all away?

How would you like to climb all those stairs just to bring the groceries in?


Photo op in the middle of the train ride....

June 19, 2010.....and yes, that is snow on them thar hills....


4 of the cousins....funny how they divided themselves for this photo...not sure how happy Jack is in his choice! This was just before the train ride. Since the two CA boys stayed over night with the Nevada grands, we drove them in our car to Carson Ciry cause we stayed in Fallon while DD#1 and family stayed in Fernley.













Guess they are not train lovers? Or maybe they are picture shy? But they sure were beautiful!






Lesson #1, how to embarrass your kids....go shopping at Walmart and buy matching shirts to wear...too bad it back fired and none of them were embarrassed! And too bad we didnt know that the next day was Hippy Days in Virginia City or we would have saved them to wear then!






I know I am prejudiced - but arent they beautiful!!!!!!!!








Sunday we went to a Wildlife Preserve outside of Reno called Animal Ark which was a lot of fun. Then we drove home from there since I had to work the next evening. We had a lot of fun - and it was so wonderful to have all of them together!
But the best news is....we then cancelled our plans to go to Jamestown the next weekend because we had a chance to babysit the Nevada grands! More photos to follow....
