Weekend in the Mountains

This is Jennifer and Mark's Cabin up in Grand Lake Colorado.
We invaded them this last weekend. Boy did we have a Great time.

Bronte' and Ashlee playing Bingo. None of us won but we had fun.

Helmets are a must to ride the 4 wheelers.

Preston is a pro.. The kids just rode around the driveway.
They would have rode all day if allowed.

Look at the smile.Bryson was loving it.

Brock and no problems driving Mom around!

Annie and Bug!

If driving 4 wheelers was not enough we gave the
Go Carts a couple spins.

Ashlee was very much the "Princess" while driving.

Bronte' quit texting long enough to drive herself.
Thanks Eric and Jennylin for letting me tag along
on this great weekend. Thanks Mark and Jennifer for
sharing your beautiful cabin with us.
I can not wait till we go again.

May is Mom's Month

The last few days I have been looking back to where we were last year at this time.
Mom was in the hospital celebrating Mother's Day.
We sat around her bed watching the Player's Championship.
Jeff was doing well, which did not help Mom's blood pressure and heart rate!
She had been moved to the regular floor so our hopes were high that she would be
coming home soon.
Mom would end up back in the ICU.
It is here she would spend her birthday.
It was there that she would return home
to Heaven!
Those that know me, know that Mom and I had our struggles.
We often did not see eye to eye.
A lot of arguments and discontent.
But I loved her. I hope she knew that.
I am grateful that I got to be with her
everyday during this time. It was not always easy
but I was glad that I was there.
Mom I miss you and think of you everyday.
Happy Mother's Day
Happy Birthday!
Mother dear, I love you so.
Your happy, smiling face
Is such a joy to look at;
It makes home a lovely place.
Mother dear, I love you so.
Your lovely, shining eyes
Are just like stars that twinkle
Way up in the bright blue skies.
Mother dear, I love you so.
I’ll try the whole day through
To please our Heav’nly Father.
I’m so glad he gave me you.
