We also got a visit from our 3 granddaughters from MT. They are so adorable and I only wish we had more time with them. But we will take whatever few precious hours we can.
The first part of our trip to Colorado was via Wyoming where we stopped for a few hours, visited, and had lunch with my shirt tail cousin. Oh my goodness I haven't acted that silly or laughed that hard in a long time. She said neither had she! Wish we lived closer...I know we would always be getting into some kind of mischief. Especially with her boyfriends: Ross, Michael's, TJ Maxx, well that is what her husband called them!
When we left Aurora we traveled south to Colorado Springs and visited my husband's aunt and her family for the day before heading to my sister Pat's house in Pueblo. Can you believe I didn't take any pics of her at her house? Not enough time at these places to really feel like we got to visit. But sometimes you just have to enjoy what you have!
Don't ask me what these are called or let my husband know that I can't remember the name! We couldn't believe how much snow was still on the mountains for mid June! But so good to be back in what our hearts will always call home. The last leg of our trip was heading westward over these massive Rocky Mountains to Grand Junction where we stayed and visited with my husband's sister and got to have a visit over lunch with my nephew.
Here are a couple of pics as we went through the Glenwood Canyon and on down the road towards
I wish these pictures were better as this canyon is just so gorgeous! That is the Colorado River that follows the road! It was so full and almost at flood stage! So you can imagine with all that snow that has not melted what may be coming in the months ahead.
