Summer 2014 Roundup

Well, we're going to start school up in about 10 days so it's fun to look back at the summer.  We spent a lot of time in the water, some of it floating the ditch.

Our Rydalch cousins came for Father's Day and for 4th of July.

Clyde and Alice attended Mumsy Camp separately, but Alice joined Clyde and Elliott on the hike to Blue Lake with Mumsy.  Blue Lake is the source for Fawn Creek that irrigates Uncle Jock's, the old Cabarton and Mumsy's new North pasture.

Mumsy taught Clyde and Elliott about different types of trees.  Here's Clyde checking out a pinyon pine.

There was a lot of time spent at the mudhole, digging deeper and deeper and making all kinds of pipe systems and other interesting contraptions.

This is the last snow we saw in late June atop No Business.  We all went up the mountain with Aunt Catherine.

Clyde and Alice had a fun August day at Kay's beach.

And of course there was a whole lot of work.  We had a grasshopper infestation that we coordinated abatement for.  We had to turn the water off and on so many times it was like starting the season 4 times.  Everyone was worried early, but it's August and as I look out I see lots of lush grass still.

Sometimes Alice is a little overdressed! We spent a fun afternoon on the Wises' boat.  Clyde and Alice both rode the tube and jumped off cliffs.  It was a good day.
