Boating is awesome. Boating with friends is awesome. And boating with a dog that rides on the tubes is pretty entertaining. We had a fabulous day up at Echo.
Brian's family had a day at the farm. It was lovely to see all of them that could make it out there. My dirt title could have been mud but fortunately the sun came out and dried up all the rain.
Not just any rocks mind you, City of Rocks rocks. It doesn't get any better than this for granite. Our annual trip to City with our friends was superb. It did feel a bit odd to not have Sam and Sara (our friend's daughter) there. Those missionaries were missed! We were able to explore an area called Castle Rocks that Brian has been looking at for about 25 years so that made him happy. We had Gretchen carry lots of gear, Sydney show us her mad skills at frisbee golf, and Julia show us how dirty repelling without gloves can make our hands. There was talk about a day trip in the fall. I'll keep you posted.
