I Was busy slicing / dicing, and cooking a huge pan of Fajita’s Friday night, so no pictures of the food or evening festivities. Later in the evening Marc – Jim and Ester arrived. We did manage to stay up a little late BSing and Laughing around the fire, so some where a little slower to rise Saturday Morning – Personally – I was up for some relaxation as well that weekend.

Everyone else was bugging out Sunday for home, but Rick and I decided to see if we could get up to the Stagger in Cedar grove / Granite falls – Seems the snow level is still a  little low, and we didn’t feel like riding with snowmobiles, so it turned into a 130+ mile ride for burgers and shakes :-)
