Don’t you just want to scoop them up and toss them air?

Red Dog Saloon – Virginia City ~ 2013

Sometimes the best gift you can give yourself is time…time to relax and recharge your batteries. I love to recharge my batteries by getting away, not far, but far enough to forget about the day to day. Rich and I went to Reno and then to Virginia City. And while practically everything was closed down for the season (typical November birthday side-effect), it was still lovely to walk around, people watch and check out the sites and the views. Not typical for my birthday…beautiful weather!

Whenever a group of Rockstars get together, hijinks are inevitable. What happened in the photos above, I gleefully started in a moment of boredom by flicking water off a rock fountain onto my teammate and good friend, Kandi, who was innocently sitting nearby. Ever the competitor and generous instructor, Ms. Kat demonstrated that a flat palm was way more effective at splashing than a single finger flick. (Poor Kandi!) Kandi then demonstrated to Ms. Kat (now a mother of 3 boys) what she (a veteran mother of 3 young men) had learned during her years raising a gaggle of rambunctious boys (who all wrestle!!). As you can see in the last image…they both won! And I totally take credit for the awesome, laughing bear hug that resulted! I did good!
