Rihno Ride

One of the great things about living in the country is the open spaces. You can decide to take a ride on an ATV and just go (vs. the city where you have to load your ATV and drive somewhere before you can take it for a ride). On Monday afternoon, my dad and I took a ride out on their Rihno. We had a great time going up in the mountain and enjoying the scenery.

My parents Rihno.

One of the trails we were on.

Some of the beautiful scenery we got to see.

Vacation Time

I began my Thanksgiving Vacation on Saturday. On my way, I was able to to see the sunrise. I have seen better, but it was still pretty, so I stopped to take a photo of it. Hafen, Hudson (two of my nephews) and I went out to play on Sunday afternoon, so here are a few photos of that.
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

Dessert time!!!

Sometimes in my job, a service we have will remind me of a friend or family member. I had one a couple weeks ago that reminded me of my Grandparents. I found a poem about grandparents and thought I would share the poem with some photos I have.

What are Grandparents made of?
Hope and pride, pure joy inside
Warm Hugs and kisses, shooting star wishes
Tickles and fun, a sprinkle of sun
Hands to hold, hearts of gold...

That’s what Grandparents are made of

Tales from the past, memories to last
Laps for reading. “I love you” greetings
Wisdom to teach, always in reach
Toys galore, eyes that adore...

That’s what Grandparents are made of

Patience and time, trees to climb
Baby photos in frames, childhood games
Bragging rights, sleep over nights
Comforting arms, magical charms...

That’s what Grandparents are made of

Kindness and care, affection to share
Heart-to-heart talks, unhurried walks
Faith and trust, spoiling a must
Endless love, a gift from above...

That’s what Grandparents are made of

Halloween in the Funeral Home

This year Hannah and her friends had a Halloween Party in the funeral home. I was very impressed with their planning and execution. They worked hard and did an excellent job. Everyone who attended had a great time.

The Hosts

Check out the eyes!!!

For fear of serious chastisement if I don't post a photo of myself, here it is!

The decorations.
