Last Weekend my ladies: Mom, Aunt Karen, sister Cara, & niece Matilda, and I went out to my Great Aunt Darlene's ranch in Baker, Nevada. Aunt Darlene is 88 and is really like our grandma (since my mom's mother, passed away before we were born.) We've always enjoyed going out to Aunt Darlene & Uncle Lee's ranch (Uncle Lee is 90 years old and still gets out on his horse and works everyday as a rancher. They have been married for 69 years and never had children of their own. Funny all these generations of two sisters: Golden & Darlene, Glenda & Karen, Cara & Mary.) Anyway, all of us haven't been out there together for many many years. I used to live out there all summer for 5 straight years when Aunt Karen lived there from 1990-1994 ages 6-10! We had fun playing games; driving around to Hidden Canyon Ranch & Garrison Lake; taking pictures, talking; laughing; eating; and of course doting on Matilada (who was named after her great great grandmother Matilda Swallow - Aunt Darlene's mother and our mom's grandma.) What an enjoyable time we must plan that trip more often together!

Klint & Bryce mapping out which hike they wanted to do....Zion's was hot, so Elaine made herself some shorts!

The boys entertained themselves for over an hour spinnning their wedding rings!
Our dogs love the cabin and got to play with each other. Izzy (Scott & Tasia's Jack Russell Terrier) killed a giant "varmit" bigger than herself!
