Although we have been home from our final Chuckwagon Race for just over two weeks now, there has not been a shortage of things to do, here at Home on the Ranch. That first week was mostly a time of catching up on sleep, and just being present at home to recharge our systems. The rest of the time, I have been working at catching up on all the paperwork that was piling up, with things such as bills, GST, payroll and the like. Rick, David and Kim kept busy around home, fencing, cleaning up fallen trees, and other things that needed to be tended to.
Our daughter Amy and her son Coy arrived here on Monday, so it was time to put the chores aside, and enjoy some down time with them. My two girls, and their kids and I loaded up and headed out west to Ma Me O lake just a thirty minute drive from home. I picked up Rick’s aunt Sharon and her kayaks along the way too.
Coy was pretty happy to be out in the kayak by himself for the first time ever. The water couldn’t have been calmer, and the warmth of the sunshine was hovering around 30 degrees. A beautiful warm summer day.
Little Ryker, well you could call him a little “Beach Bum”. He loved the water and the sand. It kept him occupied for hours.
Ryker even had a fine feathered friend nearby.
He tried to get close………….but that was just about how it was going to be…………….just close.
When your seven months pregnant, and hot in the summer heat, you find the best place to cool off, and that is just what Amy did. We are looking forward to that little bundle of love to arrive in the beginning of October. Another grand-baby to spoil! Love it!!!
Nana was enjoying her time at the lake. This is something that we pretty much have never done over the years as Chuckwagon Life was where it was at the past 34 years of being married to Rick.
Now as life moves on for us to new adventures, we have to steady ourselves, and see what is next. We have not made any rash decisions, we are just going to enjoy some down time for a little while.
I just know in my heart, that we will hang on, and enjoy the next ride in our journey of life. The sky’s the limit in what we are going to do and where we are going to go. Life is good.

Sue, and Rick too.
P.S. Great things are done by people who think great thoughts and then go out into the world to make their dreams come true.
