My nephew loves the water and so my sister and I took him to Cottonwood Park to dip in the Truckee River. He is from Seattle, WA and it was a great way for him to cool off from the warmer temperatures we have here in Northern Nevada.

My sister brought her bike with her. So when we needed something from the grocery store, we would pedal down the hill to shop. Then back up the hill.
street and look back, I always feel a sense of accomplishment.
We lit the firepit and roasted marshmallows. It's a larger fire than we would normally have but we had some wood we needed to get rid of.
We also toured the National Automobile Museum, selected as one of America's Five Greatest Automobile Museums in 2012.

Our weekend went well and we had a lot of fun together. The only snag in our plans was a series of unfortunate events with John breaking the screen on his smartphone, I got a replacement and then later than evening, I cracked the screen of my cell phone while sitting around the firepit. Hey--when shift happens we just have to stay calm and ride on, right?
