Tonight is our last night and finally I have internet access! Everyone is supposed to have hi-speed up here but yet no one really seems to.
Updates from the last few days:
Here is my clinic group - we had a great time working on each other's stories!
On Saturday evening we went on a hayride and ate hotdogs over a campfire - fun! Look at these huge horses!!
Sunday morning we took a tour of Rocky Mountain National Park - starting at the bottom it was about 60 and up to the top where we were in snow!! Only here in CO :) We went from about 7500 to somewhere around 11,000 feet above sea level - wow!
Elevation 9,400 feet - cool but nice sweater weather:
Somewhere around 11,000 feet up (Sorry, I don't remember but it was high enough to be above the tree line and still covered in snow!)
Sunday afternoon we took a walk around the lake with an old high school friend of Kirk's and his wife - they brought along their 3 boys making me miss my 5 all the more :( But we did have a nice afternoon with them anyway! While we walked in the park we came across a herd of female elk - these things are everywhere.
Monday we spent the day in downtown Estes Park - it was beautiful weather and such a beautiful area.
My internet connection was horrible so I'm just finishing this on Tuesday now that I'm back in Florida (safely thank the Lord - Kirk too, back in VA). We had a really good time away in CO - love that state and I can't wait to go back someday - next time with the kids though - I'm sure they'd love it. Now I have about 1000 landscape and mountain photos of CO - I could create a ton of postcards :) I also have more photos of Elk then I'll ever need but they are so cool. Saw 3 bucs outside our cabin this morning on our way out. Of course, I took photos but I won't subject you to them.
Glad to be back with all my babies - I missed them but they had a great time with Grandma and Grandpa and G&G did a great job taking care of them :)
Happy Thanksgiving from the Chases!
