A week long vacation with family...and I survived.
In fact, I did MORE than survive, I had a GREAT time! We kicked our trip off by meeting Grumpy Granny and her special friend for a beer, they were (as I posted before) a delight!
And the beer at the Shamrock Brewery was a great start to our Colorado Brewery tour. We managed to visit four breweries in 3 cities while site-seeing.
We didn't just drink beer all week, we took breaks to visits the Pagosa Springs Hot Springs...sometimes three times a day. I am SOLD on hot springs now, it was so relaxing! I cannot wait to do it again.
The real reason for the visit was Sara's niece...she turned two last week and we were down to celebrate. I made Sara and her matching pajama pants. Girly snuggly flannel ones...
and UofW Husky pants. Guess who got a potty for her birthday? Might be hard to tell from this picture...
And the entire visit was great. There was an amazing B-day cake, a little fall color left, fresh snow fall on the mountains and general amusement at 'hanging out' 8000 feet above the elevation we live at...today, we are heady from all the extra oxygen.
There are pictures posted here.... a spare 50-some...whittled down from 250. Thank me later.
Sara is sick now. I am in denial about being sick. I suppose its a good thing we still have one more day to recover before heading back to work.
Damn, I wish I were back soaking in those hot springs...
