Back to life in the fast lane – at least with grandsons!

Yes, life is slowly resuming the fast paced life of grandkids and starting the holidays.  I am not ready for the holidays.  But so goes life. Time to get ready.

Zachary has been busy with sports.  Football ended, soccer is just about to end, and basketball has started.  Soccer really ended this weekend, the regular season.  However they are playing in a tournament this weekend that starts at 8 a.m.  In the cold, cold fall weather.  I think the low Friday night is supposed to be 28 degrees. BRRRRRR for that 8 a.m. game.

This is how the weekend is shaping up.  Three basketball games – one Friday, one, Saturday, and one Sunday.  Possibility of four soccer games – Saturday 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., Sunday at noon and possibly final at 3:30 p.m.  Right now the plan is for Zane to spend the night with us Friday and he and I will NOT go to the 8 a.m. game.  It will just be too cold and early.  Then we can hope the temperatures rise for other games.  Wish us luck!

Boys at Halloween – how cute.  Thomas the Tank and a vampire:

Yes, I did make it to the Pirates of the Canyon Balloon Festival on Halloween weekend.  We went to the Trick or Treat gathering Saturday afternoon hoping for the lift off but it was too windy.  The boys had a good time in spite of that.  They got to go to each site and gather candy, they got something to eat, and they rode the “train”.  It was fun.

The Sunday morning flight from Palo Duro Canyon was just awesome!  A perfect morning.  I really thought I had missed it because I got up late.  I drove straight into the park and got there in time for the first balloons to be inflating for take off.  By the way, thank you, Palo Duro Canyon, for letting us into the Canyon without a fee.  Everyone needs to attend this event at least once in their life.  I have been the last 3 years, even though they did not launch last year, and love it.  Here are a few pictures.  Please visit my Webshots pages to see LOTS more.

I had company last week from Canada.  A friend I met on the internet years ago through our cross stitch hobby.  We went to see Ev and Wayne about 10 years ago and they finally got this far down into the states!  It was great to have them.  They are now in Phoenix then on to Palm Springs for what they call “hot hot weather”.  I do hope they got that.  While they were here it was gorgeous and fairly warm weather with a little breeze.  Today it is much cooler.  We did take them to the American Quarter Horse Museum, Cadillac Ranch, Palo Duro Canyon, and out to the Big Texan just to check it out.  We really enjoyed those trips.  Funny how you don’t visit places around home.

Oh, almost forgot.  The boys went to a birthday party and they had their faces painted.  It was so cool.

Back to work.  I need to work on a spreadsheet for our investments.  I started one and quit on it so it really needs updated, for what little there is left!  See you in a few days I hope!
