Kansas Baby, Part 2

All that swinging worked up an appetite, so while Connor had a snack ...


while the big kids went to the Wyldewood Cellars winery ...


They have some very good wines. Their specialty is elderberry and it is really tasty. Joe recommended the Prairie Sunshine. It is really, really good.


Then it was back to the house to eat that brisket, watch our beloved Sooners lose another game ... and have some ice cold Avalanche Ale from Breckenridge Brewery.


Avalanche Ale is a a friendly amber ale that is always tasty and isn't overpowering. For a real treat, visit the brewery in Breckenridge, Colorado, and have some food and an Avalanche. It's just good! If you visit Breckenridge in winter, be sure to bring your skis. The mountain is fun. Way back in the 70's, I learned to ski on that hill, and have always had fun there.

Early the next morning, I loaded the scooter for the trip home. Yes, there really is a case of wine in that tailbag ...


Yep, it was rainy and cold, but I have lots of winter gear to keep me toasty rolling through the Kansas prairie ...


Finally, back home safe and sound ...

Howdy Skeeter,
That sure was a great trip. I liked the photo of Cimarron River; it looked very peaceful although I'm guessing it isn't always.

Have a cold ale for me.

Skeeter,
That was such a fun trip and that baby Conner is a sweetie pie, to boot.

I'm curious about how many people get tounge tied saying Skeeter's scooter? :)

I can't drink any alcohol anymore..the rheumatoid arthritis meds are unforgiving and I'm just not up for a liver transplant.

I thought you went on a cruise, but maybe you took another week to go somewhere in country afterward. Bet you saved a ton of cash by taking that scooter, Skeeter. *hug* I couldn't resist.
