Usually on a holiday weekend we will go to Cloudcroft or we just find a way to get all the brothers and family together to go ride something on the Dona Ana’s. I say “brothers” because usually its me…and then brothers. 🙂 I am happy to say that tomorrow I will officially have a girl family member join me! My niece Carolyn is coming down and we are going to give it a whirl!
I love to take a picture of the brothers. I knew the second I took this that Mike’s mom would want a picture. And she did. 🙂
We took the trail across the mountain behind them on some really rocky parts. I am really shady on technical and wasn’t in the mood to crash, so I opted to walk it, while EVERY SINGLE one of them rode it.
This is what it looks like. Can you see why I didn’t ride it?? I have to learn it by September for the local race because I know it’s costing me time! We ended up cutting it a little bit short after riding the jeep road because of how hot it was! I drank every drop of water I had with me!
We then went over to Mike’s parents house, which is always a favorite of Barney. He starts barking out the car window while we drive over. He gets so excited!
Here he is doing what he does….frisbee retrieving. It’s like he is a retriever or something.
We ate some smoked ribs….and…the best…part….
….homemade ice cream!
Holidays are always so nice to have an excuse to eat and to meet together as family. Can’t wait for the 4th of July!
