Last week was the First Annual Quad and Cart ride through Christopher Creek. Twelve vehicles showed up to ride around in there decorated getups.
It was a great night with music and everything you could think of decorated. They had golf carts, quads, a rail and even a Bobcat.
Chuck and Karen Schmitt had their granddaughters all bundled up in there with music playing and they were leading the pack.
We showed up late in the Bobcat, trying to catch up. My husband was driving and Frankie and I were sitting in the bucket. I think he hit every pothole going down Columbine Road trying to catch up. Boy! Was that fun.
After riding through the community, everyone headed to Creekside Steakhouse to get warm.
Those that attended the ride were: Mark and Laura Alvin and their daughters, Chuck and Karen Schmitt and their granddaughters, riding in the back of their Ranger.
Dennis and Kelly O'Neil of C-Canyon, Dean and Jenny Dobson and Tucker and Pam in their golf cart, Dale Hansen and Karen Thornton, Jill and Ron Eggermeyer of Colcord Road, and Tom and Linda James of Ponderosa Springs.
Bud light John and Kathy had the cute rail all decorated up, (I think they had more bulbs than I did on my tree).
There were Scott and Marilyn Tice, Dwaine and Judy Toole, and yours truly with our family in the Bobcat.
It was a fun night and they are looking forward to next year.
Patty Boesling and Nancy Olsen judged the best decorated house for the holidays and the winners are: First place goes to Sam and Caren Seay of Friendly Elk Road, second place goes to Steve and Carol Graham on Columbine Road. Thanks for brightening everyone's Christmas.
