Easter 2014

Every Easter, the cousins get together for an Easter Egg hunt. This was the first year that the littlest cousin was old enough to join the hunt, though he didn’t really understand what was going on.

Tubing Adventure

On Sunday we loaded up our car with tubes and rafts and set off down the Truckee River with some friends. It’s a little late in the season, though, to be in the part of the river we were in. The river was too shallow, there were too many big rocks, and in many places we were left dragging the tubes through 2-inch-deep water rather than riding them. We did have a lot of fun when the river got wide and deep, but the going was slow. After three hours we had made it about half a mile and decided to call it quits. Next time we’ll find a better stretch of river to go down.

Solar Eclipse 2012

In May 2012 a solar eclipse hit Reno, Nevada. It was a total eclipse, but more than that it was an “annular” eclipse, meaning the moon was so small that it didn’t cover the sun completely and it left a ring of fire around it where the sun was still visible. We headed out to a park to watch the eclipse with a bunch of friends.

Wild Horses

I came across a group of wild horses down by the Carson River. I’m used to wild animals being skittish and bolting at the slightest noise, but these horses were cool with me slinking in and becoming part of their group. I gave them their space, and Mama was especially giving me the evil eye whenever I got too close to her baby, but overall they didn’t really care if I was there or not.
