It was a really fun couple of days...in the middle of the week no less! It was my birthday on Tuesday and after work, Rex and I ventured over to the "other" side of town. We got a room at the Green Valley Ranch Hotel for the night. It was a really nice little get away for a change. We really did not do anything...but that was the point. The pool there is beautiful. It has a beach entry at one end, sand and all. We just lounged around there for the afternoon and evening. Then we went to dinner and after dinner we walked around at the District. It's a neat place, but the shops are a little snooty. It was a nice little walk after dinner. While we were walking, we passed The Cheesecake Factory-had to stop in for a piece of vanilla bean cheesecake with warm Carmel topping-to go. That was my kind of birthday cake!
We spent the next morning at the pool again. After we checked out, we stopped at Lucille's Bar-b-q for lunch. That evening, after we got home and unpacked, we took the motorcycle for a ride up Mt. Charleston. It was a beautiful evening and nice and cool. As you can see from the picture, I had to put a jacket on. What a difference a few miles up the mountain can make. It was a really nice couple of days.
We took a little walk up a path on one of our "pit-stops"
Tractor Edition Well, as you may remember, I gave Rex a tractor for Christmas. It is an old Ford tractor, and I thought he would love to have it to plow the land we have in Harmony and things like that. STUPID ME! Should have known better. Got something old? Better fix it up--I think I better look out, I'm getting pretty old myself. Anyway, he did some fire sprinkler work at a paint shop of a friend of his, so he asked the guy if he would paint the tractor as a trade out. That started the ball rolling. Next thing I know, we have UPS at the door a couple times a week delivering new parts. Well, the tractor turned out great. I think he will be riding it in the New Harmony 4th of July parade, not plowing the land....but that's ok. He does look pretty good on it.
We were high school sweethearts...now we're "empty nesters". Time to PLAY! We love to ride our 4 wheelers and Harley, watch the Utah Jazz, and spend time in Utah. Rex enjoys hunting, tinkering on cars, reading and me. I like to shop, go to the beach spend time with family and him. Life is good.
