Weston used the chalk pastels to draw wildflowers.


David found him hopping around the cabin after a big rainstorm.

All aboard!

We road the V&T railroad from Virginia City to Gold Hill and back. Weston sat in the old depot and Kelton & Brennan tried the two man truck.

Enchanted pools

Weston and Brennan spent an afternoon sliding down the granite into a little crystal clear pool. Then together they warmed up on a sun drenched rock ledge. Unfortunately they shredded their shorts!

Jamming at the cabin

"On Top Of Old Smokey" never sounded this good before.

Away into the sunset

Kelton went out for a sunset paddle from our dock.

Birthday boys!

My little boys are now big boys of six years old! Weston loves kayaking with me. Brennan is enjoying driving in Virginia City, NV. They had a lovely party at the cabin with a cookout, a piñata, presents, and best of all lots of friends!!!
