Law Enforcement Encounter

Beautiful day for a bike ride and a dog walk.  So Grace headed out on her bike and dad and Zoey on foot.
 …Destination. Raley’s deli for lunch.

When we walked out with our food …near the entrance where bicycle and Zoey were parked …there was a police car and an officer inside it giving us the steady but polite observation. He than exited the car and approached.  

He said someone had called police HQ that a young girl wearing purple on a purple bike was riding like the wind without parental supervision.

  No doubt that concerned citizen saw Grace when she was taking advantage of the Vista Blvd downhill and got maybe 100 yards ahead of dad and Zoey.  

The officer was nice and made Grace’s first LEO experience a positive one.

Likely won’t happen again on the way home …..uhhh because home is uphill!

THANKS SPARKS PD for the concern and great attitude.

Turkey-Day Outing

Great afternoon of fun and food. Thanksgiving means mom works so Dad and Grace are left to our own devices. This morning we were lazy around the house, and then headed to the hills with Zoey. Up Galena Creek Trail on Mt. Rose was good fun and 23degrees with mild snow flurries made for added fun on our great hike/adventure. Yes we kinda got lost for a few minutes! Zoey is the best, she didn’t even now we were lost!

Then we stopped by one of our favorite coffee shops (Cafe Milano) on the way home for a snack. Odd to be in a coffee shop on Thanksgiving, but in Reno it’s all good. Nice snack and then a desert called the “Brownie Train Wreck” ..and oh boy was it ever!!

We have a lot to be thankful for, and we reflected today. On Saturday we’ll do a traditional Thanksgiving.


A nice snowstorm last night and that prompted school to be delayed for two hours. That opened up the door to some snow-fun! First snow of the winter, and Zoey’s first snow ever! -Grace showed us all how it’s done!
