Over The Mountains & Far Away ~ Family Time

 My husband has worked so hard for so many years it is good to see him enjoying time away with our sons and their families .
We journeyed over the mountains and far away to be with our sons and their families. We have a home there where we will re-locate within the next 2 years, but until then we visit when we're able. This past week we were there visiting and we also went fishing. This is a picture of Diamond Lake where we went fishing. We LOVE to fish....
...especially when we're catching fish ! Look at this stringer full of Rainbow trout my husband and youngest son are holding ( it was heavy ).We all limited out and later on the same day we had a fish fry. Enough fried fish for everyone to have a whole fish. So delicious.
Our sons' families ( including 7 of our grandchildren ) enjoyed the fried fish and all the goodies that went along with the meal. We enjoyed the company of our sons and their families.

Yes, over the mountains & far away holds our hearts and God willing, will soon be the place we live until we die. This pic is of a few of our grandchildren watching one of their cousins ride our youngest son's ( their uncle ) horse. So many good times, so many good memories, so many hopes and dreams over the mountains and far away.

It is heartwarming to know you have a retirement dream in place Kathy. Although welcome and gratifying, it's a big change for our husbands when they reach this stage of life. Mine is a retired fire captain and he found it hard to let go at first but realized quickly how the stress was gone.
What will become of your animals? With moving you'll have many plans to make.
A nice photo of the grands and the fish fry sounds delicious. Family gatherings are so much fun, aren't they!

What a beautiful place to spend with family. And, moving there must be a dream? It will be fun to see how you settle in and where the journey takes you.

That's a very big step you're planning to take Kathy. It looks wonderful. I wish you well when the time comes...

You have found a wonderful place to settle. We are at the cross roads of know we must move but we don't have an idea where at this point. You have lots of good looking grandchildren.

Looks like fun! Gorgeous place. I have one brother and his family soon to join him in the Pacific Northwest and my sister and her husband are getting ready to move that way and my other brother just moved back closer to us from the Pacific Northwest.
