This morning we got up and Ryan and I walked Robert to school. Then Ryan headed out for an escort mission with the Patriot Guard Riders and I went and brought my bike to the shop to get new tires on. No, my old ones hadn’t worn out, but I’m getting a little heavier duty tire put on, and also new handlebar grip tape. Then I went and got a manicure. After we had both been home for a while, we headed to school to watch Robert’s class in their Field Day. They had different stations with water activities and all the kids had tons of fun getting a little wet, but not completely soaked. We only caught the second half of their time outside, but it still was fun. Then he walked home with us after school and we finished getting ready (I had done most of the packing earlier, before I left to get my nails done). We left a little after 2, and after a stop on post for gas, we were on our way. We drove about 5 hours to Heber-Overgaard, in northern Arizona. It’s beautiful up here and lots of trees! We’re about 1000 feet higher in elevation than we are at home, but it’s not bad, although it’s much cooler. We got checked into the hotel, paid for by Ryan’s sponsor, and then we went and ate. We all had all-you-can-eat salad bar, and they didn’t even charge us for Robert! Not many places will let you do that anymore. Once back to the hotel, we hung out with the 40 et 8 guys for a while, and of course Ryan’s harassment began. He got to be a go-fer to get more beer for people or whatever. We’ve both been talking to Robert about this so he knows that it’s all in fun and they’re not going to hurt daddy at all. I left with Robert to get him to bed, and Ryan got back to the room shortly after that. Tomorrow is the real fun for Ryan. . . . .
