I am on a mini vacation at the moment. I'm in our local mountains, which would be the Rocky Mountains. We drove up Friday afternoon and will stay until Tuesday. We're staying in a condo with free internet service, which is why I can get on my computer to write a post, leave a comment on Facebook, or finish a game of Scrabulous. But I'm not wasting much time on it because I'm enjoying all that is around me.
Danielle and her friend, Megan, drove up Friday night and will go home tonight (Sunday). We've had a good time with them. We did a lot of sightseeing yesterday and today we plan to spend a couple of hours on Dillon Lake in a speed boat. Should be fun.
Jake and Hollee will be driving up this afternoon. They'll get up here just in time to join us on the boat. They will then spend the night and go home Monday in time for both of them to go on to work for evening shifts.
Don and I will have one night here by ourselves. I think it worked out perfectly. We get to spend time with our kids and still have a little bit of alone time - all in the beautiful mountains. Up where the temps are much cooler than the high 90's that we left down below. Up where the air is clear and the woodsy smell of the greenery is all around you. Yep, I love the mountains. I feel very lucky to live at the foot of the Rockies.
