Family Weekend in Reno






















Time sure is flying by! Only 6 days left here in Reno. I come home Sat!
My family left yesterday afternoon after spending some nice family time together. Thank you to those of you who made that possible. We really appreciated it. We got remarried, rented and watched "Sky High" (Kaelin says "that was a really good movie), played some arcade games at Circus Circus, played several rounds of "Speed" and solitaire with the cards Shanna left us, ate some nice meals together and played in the snow. Kaelin made some amazing one armed snow angels! (kind of hard to make snowballs with one arm in a cast).
I dropped them off about 215pm on Sunday and then came back to my room and watched the Super Bowl. What a great game! A couple of my favorite ads were the Charlie Brown Coke one with the parade balloons and the Clydesdale/Dalmation Bud one. I rented "Wicker Park" afterwards and got a good nights sleep.
Now it's off to work out, go infuse and get ready for Paris to arrive Tuesday.
I can't believe how fast time is flying. I'm going to blink and it's going to be over!
Thanks again for all of the cards and emails and phone calls on top of everything you all have already done. And thank you to those of you feeding my family while I am away! I can never thank you all enough. You amaze me. What good there is out there in the world.

Oh those are great family pictures. I am glad you all had a great family time weekend. Somehow with all the life craziness we have in our schedules, we miss that. We need to snag it whenever we can. Have a good week. Let Paris cook for you!

Great Photos!

My boys love Sky High, they'd watch it over and over if I'd let them.

Hi Shauna,
I applaud you in your courageous journey, and I am enjoying reading about your experiences in Reno.
The picture of the kids in front of the elephant at Circus Circus prompts me to write;
I have driven through Reno 8 times in the past 7 years, and I always stop at that casino, usually because I have a youngster in tow. It has become a tradition for the kids to get their picture taken in front of that very elephant! Your pic brought back the memories!
Thank you, and best wishes.
