My face feels like it is going to shrivel up and fall off. The air is so dry up here, it’s amazing. Beautiful place. I could see living here. We are in Denver (Westminster, actually) visiting Dave and Erin and their kids, Brooke and Luke. Dave is Dan’s best friend going all the way back to Jr. High. He was also the best man at our wedding. He is also the one who introduced Dan and I, so he is a big part of our lives.
We flew in last night, late. After lunch we are getting into 2 cars and driving up to Steamboat Springs for a few days, then back here for another few days, and then home. A great vacation bringing two families together. All together we have 4 kids, 3 boys 1 girl. Ages 14, 11, 4 and 2. It is funny to see how much energy and noise a 4 and 2 year old can create. It seems so long ago for us. The little ones were up at 5 am this morning. My kids slept until 9, and would have slept later, but for the noise. We are in a totally different place in our lives than Dave and Erin are, but yet we still have so much in common.
Have to go for now. Don’t know when I’ll be able to actually post this. I think I need to find a Starbucks with wireless…oh well. I’m supposed to be on vacation and you know as soon as I get a connection I’ll be checking my work email….so maybe it’s better this way.
