This will not be my typical post. I don't have enough time today to do that. Sorry if you look forward to those!
We bought #2 son a smoothie maker for Christmas. Sadly, it lasted long enough to make about 4 smoothies. We have been without a smoothie maker for several months. We got this Ninja one to replace the other (not the same brand). I must say, it has been so much FUN! Here we are having a Super Green Smoothie and a Berry Blended smoothie. (Those are my own recipe names :-))
We took the Monster truck out for a drive in the mountains on Labor day. The Toyota is still not put back together from the conversion to disk brakes. We drove about an hour away to this country road taking us down the McCain Valley. It was about a 26 mile trip down to the dead end and back with some really spectacular views down into the Salton Sea area .
This is the lone little pumpkin. It is as big as #2 son's head. It is starting to turn orange. I was hoping for a big batch of pumpkins. I wanted to let the children at church some and pick pumpkins in October. I don't think I'll be getting anymore pumpkins. :-(
When we return from Alaska October 20th, we will repack the Monster truck and the camp trailer and head to the mountains on the east side of Yosemite for some much needed family time. I am looking forward to exploring dirt roads in the TOYota, seeing the San Andreas Fault, picking some Obsidian and maybe finding a hot spring for a cozy soak with my guys. We should be home around November 1st.
