Family Kickball

USA | Sunday, 15 Aug 2010 | Views [356] | Comments [1]

I am laughing as I write this. The memory of my sisters playing kickball is an endless source of amusement to me and other members of my family. My excuse for not playing was improper footwear-flip flops don't cut it-and an improper foundation garment.... Read more >

What a day!

USA | Thursday, 12 Aug 2010 | Views [351] | Comments [1]

On Wednesday, 9 of us left for a 1:00 trail ride with about 20 other people and 2 young wranglers.  The usual afternoon thunder clouds were moving in as we left the stables.  Within 15 minutes it was drizzling and a few minutes later, we all got slickers ... Read more >

Back in the saddle

Monday: My favorite line of the day from Rachel upon hearing we were forcing her to go to a teen night down at the community center: "I'm on vacation, why would I want awkward moments with other teenagers?" Another good one from Rachel, upon ... Read more >

A perfect Sunday

USA | Sunday, 1 Aug 2010 | Views [335] | Comments [1]

You might think rain on the first full day of vacation would be a big disappointment. It was actually perfect. Most of us came from HOOOOOTTTT weather and were looking forward to a change in temperature. What better for that than a rainy thunderstorm? ... Read more >

Rocky Mountain High CO

USA | Sunday, 1 Aug 2010 | Views [285]

The whole crew is here! We drove from Frisco through Rocky Mountain National Park climbing to 12,000 ft. It was an amazing spectacular drive. The meadow at the top, above the tree line, was beautiful. If you didn't worry about rolling into the tree ... Read more >

Mom and Dad are having dinner with a friend and I sent the children outside. Sitting here with a beer and some solitude. I am watching them out the window and am amazed they are still out there. Noah wanted to see the dead fish from a big rain storm ... Read more >

Frisco CO

USA | Friday, 30 Jul 2010 | Views [268]

We are back in sweat shirt weather. We were driving over from Frisco and it started raining. I looked at the temp gauge in the van and it was 68 degrees! Geez-might be time to turn off the A/C? We are in another 3rd floor walk up and we were sucking ... Read more >

Grand Junction CO

USA | Friday, 30 Jul 2010 | Views [268]

We drove from Moab to Grand Junction CO. We took a jet boat tour on the Colorado River with the funniest guide I have ever heard. His humor was dry and completely deadpan so it would be one of those "you just had to be there." We were crying ... Read more >

Canyonlands Moab UT

USA | Friday, 30 Jul 2010 | Views [322]

We decided to go to Canyonlands in the morning after dying in the heat at Arches at sunset. We packed every water bottle we had and we were on our way. We hiked a very short hike to the Mesa Arch. Noah was climbing on every rock he could-giving me ... Read more >

Family reunion tomorrow!  We are out of UT and hot weather and back into sweat shirts. We are going to go home and expect fall to start and we still have at least 2 months of summer left in Atlanta! The kids are so excited to see family and especially ... Read more >

A Hummer photo is worth a 100 Hummer words

USA | Wednesday, 28 Jul 2010 | Views [278]

Words can't really do our Hummer trip justice (and you know CD is all about justice) So..I have included a few to give you a flavor of the trip. It was a lot of fun and can't wait to do it again sometime.

Hummin in a Hummer

USA | Monday, 26 Jul 2010 | Views [274]

At 0730, Pat and Dave set out on a really great trip.  We took a Hummer trip up on Devils' Revenge trail here in Moab. Trails out here are rated by risk and difficulty from 1 through 5.  The driver said this was a solid 3. Hummers rock and far surpass ... Read more >

Arches National Park Moab UT

USA | Monday, 26 Jul 2010 | Views [240]

We have packed our sweatshirts away and realized that the expression "only gringos and donkeys go out in the heat of the day" has tremendous merit. We started figuring out what to do about 9 am and realized we had already lost our morning window ... Read more >

To Moab-one LOONNGGG drive

USA | Monday, 26 Jul 2010 | Views [243]

We had stopped at Mesa Verde on the way to Moab. Getting back in the car, driving 27 miles back to the entrance and then on the Moab made for one long day. It wasn't that many more miles than we had driven previously, it just seemed like  a much harder ... Read more >

I've lost track of what day it is...Mon. July 26

USA | Monday, 26 Jul 2010 | Views [301]

We have all lost complete track of what day it is. The kids check their phones to find out and I check my computer. We have seen some amazing things on this trip! I am amazed how huge our National Parks are. We drove throught the entrance gate at Mesa ... Read more >

4 wheeling in Colorado

USA | Saturday, 24 Jul 2010 | Views [359] | Comments [3]

My first love as a place to 4 wheel is Utah.  We have dear friends there and the trails are well groomed allowing seniors like us to get to some pretty spectacular places with out great personal risk. Colorado in general, and Ouray, in particular also ... Read more >

Day 8 Durango

USA | Thursday, 22 Jul 2010 | Views [398]

A recap of the last few days... We took a jeep tour in Ouray while Dad and Ethan spent the day driving an ATV. It started out in an absolute downpour for us. By the time we were picked up it had tapered off-lucky for us. We still needed blankets and ... Read more >
