Dennis & I went to visit family in Reno, NV. We met up with his Aunts’ Irene and Jean, Mom and Dad, Sister Sherry, and her kids.

Alexis Riding Dakota
My niece, Alexis spends every afternoon riding her horse Dakota. I got a little lesson and then threw myself at the mercy of this very huge beast. It was a lot of fun, but challenging. I’m very glad that her horse is so well trained as I had no idea what I was doing!

Here’s Alexis, Me, and Aunt Jean with Dakota:
