Big Bear Weekend

It's Sunday evening and I just returned home from a wonderfully relaxing weekend with the girls in Big Bear. Joni and Brandie invited us up to their cabin in Fawnskin. We left on Friday afternoon; myself, Rondi and Lori. Joni and Brandie were there when we arrived with cold beers waiting for us. If you click on the pictures, you can see it up close and really clear.

Here is the boat dock, looking out from the deck.

Friday night we went out for Mexican food and Pink Cadillac Margaritas... delicious...

Sunday morning - the lake was calm - no wind.

Quack - Quack!!

Thank you Joni, Brandie, Lori and Rondi for such a nice and relaxing weekend. I really had a great time. That was a true retreat for me, with drinking. Let's hear it for the buckets!!!

A day at Full-Bore

Ryder checking out great grandpa.



Great-grandpa with Ryder and Amanda.

On Wednesday I drove down to dad's shop to watch the guys lay the new floor in the offices. Well, one thing led to another and we had to hire a plumber ($1200) because none of the water valves worked in the entire building. And he'll install the new toilets we brought.

The shop is half empty. Erik and Robert came by and tore down 2 large shelf units and removed them.

Here's a short clip of Erik.

Amanda came by to visit and brought the fast and furious "Ryder". He is interested in tires and anything that rolls, I wonder where he gets that.

He's just a busy and inquisitive little guy..

More broom work...

Your car is gone - Shannon - Amanda bought it.

That's all for now. Love, MOM
