Clio’s Rivers Edge Camping and Dual Sport Ride – 4th of July Weekend

We had booked the Rivers Edge awhile back because they book up pretty quickly on holiday weekends.  We booked for 3 days to enjoy some dual sport riding.  Ted came up on Saturday night and went riding with us on Sunday.

This photo was taken once we got up the first hill, after I decided to put it in a ditch and dump the bike.  Oh the stories

This year, we decided to take the motorcycle group back up to the Trinity Mountains to Weaverville.  There are some really great roads in the area and with a vote, everyone chose this area again.

When we arrived, we arrived to rain 🙁

A torrential downpour actually..

So we all took cover and had fun conversations

We even had the local guy come and cook us some BBQ!

Checking out bikes before we head out on our adventure!

Out somewhere on Hwy 36

The Black Lightning Motorcycle Cafe is the go to for this group when we are in the area!

Girls Trip to Sonoma – Country Summer Music Festival

Jessica, Poppy, Dusty, Kadie and Stephanie were on this girls trip this time.  We went to Sonoma for the Country Summer Music Festival.  Special guests were Craig Morgan, Lady Antebellum, Chase Rice, Kip Moore, The Band Perry, Old Dominion, Frankie Ballard, Josh Turner and Billy Currington.  It was a good time.. a little hot during the day so we stayed in the RV, played some “Heads Up” and had a few cocktails 🙂

Stephanie sure makes a pretty concoction!



Dusty makes some tasty Vodka gummy worms!

Lady A

Old Dominion

Stephanie is a damn good cook!  She is a resident cook now!

Cheers to another successful girls trip!

Memorial Day at the Rivers Edge

And yet another trip to the Rivers Edge in Clio.  We love this place.  It is so serene and quiet.  We get the same campsite every time, we do a lot of front porch sittin’

Or sleeping….

Our home away from home..

Sardine Lake Resort.  The lodge gets great reviews and they have a restaurant that has great reviews also.  And you can’t complain about the views.

All tucked in for the night!  Spoiled!

Seacliff State Beach Camping

Just about twice a year, we go to Seacliff State Beach in for some great seaside camping.  It is literally motorhome, boardwalk, sand and then the ocean.  We are so close and this is one of our favorite spots to camp.  This time, we invited Marisa, Kenny and their two girls, Hailey and Olivia to come enjoy with us.

Scott enjoying some downtime..

Olivia was a little scared of the dogs at first but then she started warming up to them.  Hence why she is on the picnic table.

I am a lap dog!

When is dinner?

Snow Skiing at Squaw Valley

Every year, we buy a snow ski pass to Sierra at Tahoe.  The pass comes with 4 tickets to Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows.  Sounds like a deal to me.  Today we decided it was a Squaw day.  Enjoy the snow!

The usual crew… Scott, Jess, Steph and Ted

Stephanie getting in the groove.

A little K2 action….

Pool anyone?

Chris Botti Concert 2016 – Scott’s Birthday Present

Happy Birthday to Scott.  I had heard that Chris Botti was coming to San Francisco and thought how awesome it would be to get tickets.  Since Scott is always so hard to buy for (since he has everything he wants).  HA HA.  We purchased a DVD of Chris Botti with the Boston Pops and it was amazing, so I knew this would be a fantastic concert.  It was in San Francisco at the SF Jazz Center.  Beautiful venue and very intimate.

Scott said this was the best concert he has ever been to.

This video does not do her justice.  She is a stunning violin player.  So good, we would see just her in concert!  This is just a snippet of what she did.
