We spent the first part of June in Denver. Mutti's birthday is the 9th and we thought it would be nice to be there for that. I did some actual irrigating on her little farm - and found that while I still had the muscles to do the work my muscles have gotten very cranky and lazy, and thought it good sport to torture me. Seriously....yes a little sore, but not as bad as it should have been.... or maybe I just ache so many places on a normal day that it wasn't that different.
It's becoming more complicated when we do go to Denver as the family in that area has grown, and sadly my vacation days have not. We didn't get to see everyone.... it was just too short.About a week after we got back home, Mike and his family made the trek our way. We got to see them for 4 days, and it was a lot of fun. If you need a mall, or a major league sports team, or a university.... then you might not have fun here. We don't have it. But we do have Oak City Canyon only about 15 minutes away, and the sand dunes are closer than that. If you like recreational shooting, the range is public, free and only about 4 miles out of town. We also have the 'Flood' - brought right to our house by the Water Master. The girls like the Flood about as well as anything, that and a night at the swimming pool. Dan and Ash came down for a quick visit, and Kollette was able to play in the flood with her cousins. It was fun to see them.
