Happily gilding the lily of our surrounded-by-good-people week of fun were two pop-in-pop-out visits from the Amazing Matt and Brother Steve. They and Hunky Husband had planned a Three Musketeer motorcycle journey through Monument Valley and the Four Corners area and, come Hell or Wildfire, they would be adventure riding together.
Land of the best John Huston movies and home to the Navajo Nation, the sights are breathtaking and I have only seen them through a camera’s eye and first-hand family accounts. It must be thrilling to actually be there and there they were soaking it all in together. (By the way, if you go, stock up on booze before you take off; the boys found out the hard way that not only the land is dry.)
I offer a few of the many photos taken whilst traveling on two wheels.

Steve and David stepping it up a bit.
Three monuments, the last is aptly called Mexican Hat.
Needless to say, they had a wonderful time with each other as did I with them both before and during Tony and Ilene’s visit. As a family, both the challenging and fun times have brought us closer together and I feel privileged to be in the fold of their love.
