We miss seeing this view every day!
We got back from Colorado a few days ago. We drove out there for Dave's Mom's funeral. Both of Dave's parents are gone now. They died within a year of each other. Tomorrow is the anniversary of Dave's Dad's death last year. This is a difficult time for Dave, of course, while he processes all that has happened in his family in a year.
While we were in Colorado we enjoyed being with family again. And, Colorado still feels like home to us, even though we have not lived there for over ten years! Ahh...the mountains are beautiful!
We tried to make the trip fun for the kids as it is a long drive for little ones. They did great in the car and enjoyed watching movies on daddy's laptop. We also made sure to stay in a hotel with a pool on the way out there and back so the kids could swim. We played quite a few rounds of Marco Polo, as well as tag and other chasing games, too.
We had great driving weather and while we were in Colorado, the temperature reached almost 80! When we got back home, all the snow had melted ~ there was about two feet of snow when we left! But, we are glad for the warmer days and we hope the snow is gone for good!
