So the parental units were in town for a few days. That would explain my not focusing on The Nut at that time.

Aspen and Grama went horseback riding. My mom, a lifelong experienced rider, was highly impressed with how well Aspen managed 'Clyde' a ginormous Tenessee Walker with a stuborn streak as long as the 1.5 hour trail they rode at the local greenway.

Meanwhile, I took John, my stepdad, out on the lake with the kayaks. First time he had ever done that. I wanted to take them all on the boat on Sunday but the weather here is just too fricken hot these days for them (and me as well to be honest!).

They left today.

Here are some pics...
