On the Road Again...

We have had a very eventful and busy late spring and early summer at the ranch. The big event was the marriage of our daughter Shannon and Brian. They invited both his family and ours to a Florida beach house where they planned a wedding on the beach. It really turned out cool and we all had a great time all week. Here is a picture of the ceremony:

The ceremony really celebrated the joining of the two families. Her three kids and his two. Kim and I now have a new Son in Law and two new grandchildren. We are very happy about the additions.

We had all three of our sons and daughter in law and additional 2 grand children together. It was a memorable time. Here is a picture of the entire clan:

It was a very busy June. The race went well on the 15th. We did not have a huge turn out with only about 90 riders, but we got lucky with the weather and the guys had fun. That is the most important thing to me.

I was able to spend a bit of time with my brother Bob and his family when they made the annual trip to Arkansas. We spent the day at Eureka Springs and then went back to their condo for some swimming and a cook out.
Here is a picture from the train ride we took in Eureka Springs:

Kim got up one morning and looked outside and saw a new friend doing a little trimming on the lawn.

I spent the rest of the month doing brake jobs on the truck and the mustang and we rebuilt
Scott's motor in his motorcycle. I have not been doing any skiing because of the problems with the truck and weather issues.

We are camped out at Bull Shoals for the next week or so. Last night, my son Scott joined us and he did some skiing. He skied for a while on my slalom and then tried out the jumpers. Kim and I also got our first skiing in for the year. 

We will start the trip west to Colorado next week. We will spend most of August and September in the cool mountain air of Colorado unless we decide to do something different. We will see.
