Happy Birthday Mom

We spent the weekend at the lake celebrating my Mom’s 60th birthday. On Saturday morning we were hanging out by the fire and generally lounging around. For dinner we made Mom a meal of sea bass, pan seared scallops and jumbo shrimp. It was awesome. I’m still full.

Mom got a bit of an unusual gift. It turns out that she, and her grandkids, loved the present.

Mom’s cryptic card. It spoke of a gift she might not think to use, but should.

Her crazy Kubota RTV. She’s getting a little lesson.

Mom let Hannah take it out for the first drive. I think the boys were a little jealous.

They didn’t have to wait long to get their chance to drive.

By Sunday Mom was putting her machine to work.

Here’s a quick, unedited, video of the kids testing out the Kubota.

Although the kids spent a lot of time driving the new RTV they did find some time for other things. I’m fairly certain that the boys accumulated around 3 or 4 hours of ball hockey time. Here are a few more shots from the weekend.

Oh yeah, we found a giant tree fort while out and about exploring. Of course Scott had to see if he could get Gavin inside.

Happy birthday Mom! Thanks for the great weekend.

Big White Video

Well here is our last Big White post. This year I took a lot fewer photos and video. I quickly put together what I had this afternoon. Getting that one extra day skiing takes a lot out of an “older” guy!
