A week or so ago, Dan and I took Emily and made a trip across the mountains to visit my brother Andy and his wife Diane. It was a gorgeous Spring weekend.
Diane is infamous for her "lists" and we all got put to work. There's always lots to do and we love helping out. Of course, there was plenty of downtime, too! Relaxing on their deck at beer-thirty. Driving into town for the best pizza ever at the Hot Tomato. And we were treated to their fabulous home cooking, frittatas for breakfast and grilled pork loin for dinner one night. I should have taken pictures of the food. But I was too busy chowin' down:)
This little cutie is Crybaby. The newest of their menagerie. Their Bernese mountain dogs think he's another dog and can't figure out why he doesn't like to play. . .
. . . It's cause his mama won't let him. She doesn't like anyone messing with her baby.
This is Fergie. She's in charge of the round-ups.
Like I said, it was a working weekend. Here's my niece, Sami Jo, giving one of the horses some medicine. I can't remember what it was for. It's a good thing all I did was take pictures:)
Here's Diane and Emily and Jack and Cisco and what's-his-name having a conference of some sort. They all look deep in discussion, don't they?
Horses kept coming and going. . . .
Getting new shoes. . .
Gettin' doctored. . .
And then, the fun part. . .
Doing some riding. . . .
