A Father's Work is Never Done!

Becca is in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the ESA Conference doing her talk on Biological Soil Crusts this week and left her car at our house. Ray saw that her window was broken so he fixed it. Kind of permanently fixed it - it won't roll down but at least she won't be driving around with her window half down!

Margaritas at Las Casuelas Nuevas

Posted by PicasaRay had their infamous 1800 Tequila Margarita and I had their Cadillac Margarita they were deliciouso!

Agua Caliente Hotel & Casino - Palm Springs

Ray decided I needed some bling on the Beemer so he shopped until he found exactly what I needed! Then we decided we needed to try them out on the road so after getting back from Reno we decided we needed a mini trip to Palm Springs! If this is what retirement is like well bring it on!! Ray has had the month of July off and we are having the best time! Can't wait to go to Laughlin soon!

4th of July Fair - T's CTMH Booth

On the 4th of July, the City of Garden Valley has a parade and fair. Teresa had a CTMH booth and we got to help her set up and spend the day at the park. It was fun, the kids were fabulous and the people in the area are so kind and genuinely welcoming.

My backyard is a forest and oh yeah so is my frontyard!

Posted by PicasaCan you imagine a 40 acre yard to play in? Trees, trees and more trees! I bet there is one out there that needs a tree house built in it!

Papa's Corral - Day 2

Papa's Corral

The men worked so hard for two full days setting 400 feet of fencing for "Papa's Corral" They have been having problems with a nasty old mountain lion that took 2 of their goats so they thought if they had a more permanent structure it may help deter the mountain lion. They fell the trees for the posts, poured concrete, set up T-posts and installed the aluminum "no climb" fencing on the posts. Ray worked hard and I think he proved himself as a real cowboy in the ranching world! I know we came away from this vacation with a real respect of what it is like day to day living on a ranch!

Quad riding through Quartz Ridge Ranch

Posted by PicasaRay and I took a beautiful ride through Quartz Ridge Ranch and surrounding areas. Jer & T are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful place!

Swimming at the Ranch!

Why is it that kids love water so much! Emily would live in a pool if she could. She has been that way since she was a baby. Her Daddy set her pool up by the shop. She has quite a view from there!
