  3. Hello... Sisters,

    I have an unfortunate update (but not that unfortunate because we will all be together ;o)

    Two groups booked all the horses and a wagon for the cowboy dinner. The bright side is we will all be able to ride together in our own wagon! We will be able to bring our own wine, cider, sprite, whatever... in the wagon.

    I cried a little and the good guys at Sun Mountain Lodge offered us a 10% discount so instead of $54 our price will be $48.60 a person. If we end up with 20 women our price will be $47 a person.

    Please don't despair... If you have your heart set on riding horseback they assure me they have tons of openings for rides on Friday and Saturday at 10, 1 and 3pm. Horseback riding without a meal is $37.

    Please let Kate know if you are still going with us. I hope this is not a deal breaker for any of you. It might actually be MORE fun!
