Monday the kids slept in – when I woke up at midnight, I could still hear whispering going on, so they weren’t up quite as early as usual the next morning :-). Almost as soon as they did get up, though, they headed outside to play in the sprinkler, and to continue with their critter […]

A Sleepover

Sunday night four of the six grand ones came to spend the night – Charlie and Adam were in Georgia to go camping with Sherri and Gary for the week.  I had a busy afternoon, so it was sort of late by the time everyone arrived – but not too late for catching lightning bugs, […]

Newberry Opera House

I have been wanting to travel to Newberry, SC, and take in a show in their restored opera house ever since I first heard about it.  I finally did just that Saturday, with a group of folks from our church.  We went to see the play Nine to Five.  I have to say, the play […]

More pix from the last day of vacation

Here are a couple of final pictures from our vacation.  Still pretty much basking in the glow.  This is a view from the top (back) of the Red Rocks Amphitheater.  If you look to the left, in the grey area in the distance, you may be able to pick out the skyline of Denver.  What […]

Red Rocks Amphitheater

Saturday morning we all met up at Red Rocks Amphitheater to check it out before we headed to the airport and our flight home.  It was an amazing place.  I hate we didn’t get to take in a concert there.  Next trip!  In the bottom of the center there was a museum with the history […]

Heading to Denver

Last Friday it was time for us to check out of our condo where we’d spent our week’s vacation, & head to Denver to spend a couple of days as we closed out our vacation 2015.  We drove back a different road from the one we’d come on, and we got more beautiful mountain scenery […]

Strawberry Park Hot Springs

What a fun day we had our last day at Steamboat Springs, at the hot springs – the first time I’d ever really been to one.  It was wonderful!  It was a great set up.  There were hot springs flowing down a mountain, and filling up a couple of pools with hot water.  It felt […]

More from our second visit to The Park

Here are a couple more pictures.  The drive at the top of the mountain was harrowing, to say the least.  Jeff was taking pictures while I was driving.  That’s Lindee & Jackson in front of us, and it looked like they were just going to drive off into the end of the earth.,  Crazy. We […]
