Week Thirty-Four: Photo A Day 2009

Here is WEEK 34 of our "Photo a Day" project. Another long weekend at the River Water skiing. The weekend started out VERY Hot. It was still 113°F when we returned from dinner on Friday at the Naked Pirate Bar & Grill at 9 PM. But the rains came overnight and brought cooler weather. It cleared by Saturday morning and most of us got in two runs before the rains came again. It rained for 3 hours so everyone huddled in our RV to watch old Rat's videos and partake of lunch. After which we resumed skiing and boarding.

Sunday was beautiful and the first run of the day had all of us on glass. As we broke camp the clouds came and we hit rain, thunder, lightening, and wind on the way home.

My boat and Gene's RV hadn't been fixed in spite of the fact that they have been in the shop for the past two weeks. The RV fixes are cosmetic so we were able to use it. The boat was not usable for skiing so our friend Paul lent us his boat. Hopefully, both will be fixed by our next trip in three weeks.

Week Thirty-Three: Photo A Day 2009

Here is WEEK 33 of our "Photo a Day" project. A fun week with two days at the beach, two awesome events with Mike and Julie and a day at the races. I didn't bet just took about 600 photos. You will notice that both Gene and I got in at least a day of work. Best of us the deck is now finished... I think.Paper and elements from Stacey Tower’s Stacey’s Scraps “Indian Summer.” Modified template by Kim B’s Designs.

Week Thirty-Two: Photo A Day 2009

Here is WEEK 32 of our "Photo a Day" project. Spent the weekend at the river and was treated to the moon rising over the Colorado River. It was magical. We stayed at a the river an extra day so we could take both the boat and RV in for repairs. Just hope they are done by the 20th.Template modified from Gunhild Storeide’s “Frames & Red Zigzags” .

Tom's 40th Birthday

We had a wonderful time in LA this weekend. The highlight was celebrating Gene's oldest son Tom's 40th birthday. We took his whole immediate family (wife, step-daughter, mother, brother, brother's girlfriend) to P.F. Chang's for dinner.We spent Sunday visiting a friend who has been very ill and was finally diagnosed with Churg-Strauss Syndrome — a rare disease that can't be cured but can be treated. We were there for over seven hours and had a wonderful time as the day just flew by. Later.
