Sunny and warm, the perfect weekend to step back and relax. It doesn’t take much to call it a “Getaway Weekend”. Our devices are idled for the weekend. Better yet, Laurie and Andrea were not on call.
After a day of riding for the girls, Amanda had invited us, earlier in the week, to stay into the evening for a cookout. It was one of her handful of days off on the ranch. “Just have a jacket since we’ll be outside and have an appetite” was her only requirement.

firing the grill – mostly wood, some charcoal
grill #1 – beef skewers
grill #2 – hamburger, hamburger
Of course, we did not come empty-handed. A layered cake, two dozen roses.
A most enjoyable evening, it ended late in the night. An early arrival on Sunday morning, the girls squeezed in more riding time with their horses before the change in weather. With a strong chill in the air by mid-morning, it didn’t take long for the snow to follow.

Though the Sunday part of the “Getaway Weekend” was cut short, it was a very good weekend.
