Friday, July 20th: We said our goodbyes to Colorado this morning…Lil’ Man literally did…”Goodbye, Colorado”. We had an absolutely amazing time during our stay. I think I developed a possible new hobby or two. Hiking and biking. L and I are already planning our next venture. I really surprised myself with how much I enjoyed it. It is time to start scouring Craigslist for hiking gear and a couple of good bikes.
Arick, we had a great great time visiting you in Denver. Thanks for such an awesome time. Lil’ Man had a great time hanging out with Uncle Arick. I, had a great time eating at all the fun places. 🙂 We love you and can’t wait to see you in August!
Lance is ready to tackle this long drive!
Lil’ Man is hamming it up while he plays Angry Birds.
I, am taking a very unflattering picture of myself for posterity’s sake.
Early this morning, we heard of the tragic occurrence that took place in Aurora. It makes my heart just as much sick as it does sad. Such acts of violence I will never understand. One thing I do know, is that there are many people who are in need of our prayers and support. So many thoughts run through my head on this subject. I feel, at this time, it is best for them to be just that. Thoughts. It is a time to reflect on this tragedy and process those thoughts. One thing I do know…I have no intention of ever naming the said gunman…I will not take part in “immortalizing” him.
We left the state of Colorado, passed through the state of Kansas, and are now back in the state of Oklahoma.
We are about an hour and twenty minutes outside of Tulsa. I am ready to be “home”. My legs are nervous (I think the technical term is “restless leg syndrome”, I have always said “nervous”), my bottom has fallen asleep, and I have now listened to “Finding Nemo” three times through. Good news, I did get to finish my book and I did get to see a “dust devil”.
One of the MANY times Lil’ Man was watching “Nemo” while having his snack.
At one point along the trip, I decided to get all cozy in the back seat. Taking a break from the long drive. I took a “pretend” pic to show you what I was soon to be doing. It was a nice little nap.
We finally made it to Papi and Abuelita’s house (my dad and mom’s house). I was thrilled to be out of the car, L was thrilled to be done driving, Lil’ Man was thrilled to be with his Papi and his Abuelita.
