Farwell Gold Rush 2018

Starting with breakfast at Hahn's Peak Roadhouse after a 12 hour drive through the night!
 The rest of these are in random order:
The original 6:
 
 Water holes are the best!
Bouldery narrow trails by cliffs are NOT.
 Hahn's Peak
 Waiting out some lightening.
 Watching fireworks over Steamboat Lake atop of Farwell Mountain.  Rain in the distance.
 Riding home at night.
Happy parents.
Tired parents.
This was the first (and possibly the last) time my family of origin and our spouses spent significant time together without the kids.  It was such a treat!  There was talking, laughter, tears, and mostly a LOT of riding!  And laughing.  I sure love these people.  And we were all ready to get back to our little people at the end of our time together too. :)

New Paint Color and a Free Organ Delivery!

Half a decade.

Ezra turned 5!  He was very happy with his gift.
Also with his gifts from Grandma and Grandpa,
and Babu and Gogo.
He picked mini-meatballs and macaroni and cheese for his birthday meal.
 And chose to go to Blue Earth Plaza for his party!
 We are so happy we have this guy in our family!  What a difference it makes having a boy.  Ezra, we love your energy, your love for everything that involves a ball, the light in your eyes when you are talking, and your desire to be buddies with everyone!

Some excited girls!!
While the big girls were away, Ezra declared to Nate that he was "totally in treat mode", as evidenced below.

Summer has arrived.

Celebrating Grandpa's 90th birthday.  I love the expressions in this photo.
