[Jason, Kelly & Beto picked up Roberta at the airport Wed night, 9/1.]
Thursday morning at UB's now.
The Sawyer family has expanded with little Bristolyn.
The baby doesn't seem to cry much - not that I heard much of, anyway. :)
Now - who's the center of attention?
Arm wrestling with mom?
Brayden can run and climb - and he is very inquisitive about his surroundings.
How do you say Aunt Roberta?
OK, Jason met us for lunch - now for the dessert ride. .. He brought along an extra helmet for Roberta.
But will it come off later?
Is this the final ride for both??
They're alive - and texting each other rather than simply talking! :)
Pretty soon Bristolyn will be texting too.
OK - Friday evening now and a delightful dinner at the Sawyers.
A few road scrapes - not from his motorcycle but from his mtn bike adventure earlier in the day.
So much for spoiling our dinner. .. The real reason bikers wear black!
One of Lindsay's specialties is homemade pie.
Negotiating the trade.
Fits like a glove.
Holding babies is such a blessing.
How could we do the pyramid again without Patrick?
[This past February - over Valentine's Day weekend.]
How much longer can they keep smiling?
Time for some serious play.
It wasn't nearly as bad as some of their dumb games. :)
Nearby UB's, Blodgett Peak (9423') awaits our assault. ..
Patrick has climbed it with me as a winter ascent - now it's time for the girls.
The wildlife were ecstatic to welcome Kelly into their kingdom.
[Kelly was smart enough to let the rest of us carry packs.]
Hey, we made it to Split Rock already.
Are the uphills always this steep?
Victory - we made it all the way to Lookout Point.
Checking out Kansas.
Several cars at Blodgett Open Space Trailhead.
Kelly wore us out.
