Family time

Life at the ranch has been busy. I have been getting ready for a race that is scheduled for June 15. This is the make up date for the race that was cancelled in March. We have had rain 15 out of the last 18 days. The ranch can take it, but it has been very wet. The woods look very green and are growing quickly. The trail work is about done. Now I just need to do about a day of mowing.

We are getting "hitch-itch" and are ready to get on the road again. We will start by just going to the lakes region along the Missouri/Arkansas border. I just hope the lakes are not too flooded. My brother is coming from Colorado, so we will try to spend some time with his family also.

Last week, Kim and I made a quick trip to Arkansas to see Michael, Audrey and the kids. Here is a good picture of the family:

We took lots of pictures of Cameron. He is getting so big. He is now 3.5 months.

Here is one with Grandma:

Grandpa got some quality time with Connor. We have a blast wrestling.

I love blueberries. So we got out and picked a few at a local farm.

We had a nice drive home up through the Ozarks. Here is a view from the Rotary Arm turnout on Highway 7:

These are some of the best street bike roads in the country. We saw many groups of riders enjoying the beautiful day. We also made a stop along the Buffalo River. It is a beautiful place and we know we need to get down there for a canoe trip:

We just got our feet wet for a while, but it was a nice break.

We got to work on our slide and it is now back to normal. I am very happy with the way it turned out.

I have to end on a beautiful sunset. Take time to enjoy yours.
