More of the River Vacation

Since everyone loved the first post of vacation pictures, I decided to post more!
Our beach cabana, half set up... had to stop and have a beer to  properly hydrate!

My little one walking along our beach before the gang arrives...

All set up, my parents came down to have a could and enjoy the day...

The In Laws spent a few down minutes with us...

My two girls... enough said.

Yep those are the parents...

Little one taking her first spin on a wave runner... she's hooked.

Breakfast of champions, Coors lite and doughnuts oh and little one!

One of two Islands that saw a lot of action when it hit 103 and above!

Nine people trying to see who would fall last... they all went at the same time!

The wife's cousin gave the family a tow around the lake, here little one and her friend  go for a spin!

The wife's cousin was one of the best boat captains I've ridden with, he has this pulling thing down pat! 

What I do best...

The Wife's uncle dared her to take the stand up jet ski out for the first time...

And she never fell once!

A great scene of Pirates Cove to end our weekend on...

My Lovely bride, at casa redneck river suite.

This one almost got me!

Walking across the yard, this little guy was coiled up under a shade tree. As my foot was coming down almost on top of him, I saw his head move back to strike. I employed some mad ninja mid air hop to avoid his advance, then grabbed a shovel and went medieval on him... My heart is still racing! Yep spring is here... This is number 2.

Long time no blog...

The Wife's first snake of the year

Been awhile since I posted anything, lots of political crap going on at work, so I haven't had the time or energy to do much around the ranch, hence not a lot going on the blog. I have been spending a lot of time on Twitter, which right now has my attention more than reading or writing blogs.
Spring has completely sprung, and with it 3 foot tall weeds! So today we spent 5hrs with shovels and rakes in our hands. The ranch looks great, and it will make seeing the slithering creatures a bit easier. The wife's Birthday was yesterday, and her present was a small 2.5 foot Mojave Green rattler, that she almost stepped on. Which is reason number one for the spring cleanup! My absentee will be for at least another week, week and a half. We have a camping trip lined up for Mothers day weekend at the river, so don't be expecting any revelations!

Till next time.
