|Andrew's inspired artwork from the trip - note the raft on the right side.|
Andrew with his stuffed panda. "I don't even have a name for my panda and he's like 22." Dad, "You named him Sammy." Andrew, "Oh yeah!"
Olana about what she forgot & brought says, "I brought hand sanitizer." And a minute later, "I brought hand sanitizer that is all out -- how good is that?"
As we rise in elevation Andrew notes, "I have pressure."
The girls alternated between singing "Rolling in the Deep" and "That's the Way it is." I tried to steer them to something else...it was an unsuccessful effort. As we went down Copper Mountain in a chair lift, they were led by their mother to tell everyone we saw, "You're cute!"
Chad's favorite part was seeing a valley. Instead of "Check out the mountain," he's a valley guy. "Look at that valley!"
He also enjoyed a list that a coffee shop had printed out in their bathroom with their website info (www.sacredgrounds.biz)
The Economy is so bad...
I got a pre-declined credit card.
CEO's are now playing mini golf.
Exxon-Mobile laid off 25 congressmen.
I bought a toaster oven and my free gift was a bank.
Angelina Jolie adopted a child from America.
Motel 6 won't leave the light on anymore.
A picture's only worth 200 words.
Last but not least, Sierra kept noticing the Amish who were also vacationing. She couldn't remember what they were called and referred to them both as "pilgrim people" and "pioneers."
Oh wait, I read "I Capture the Castle" for book club through our trip. Chad told the kids, "Mom's reading a love story, but a nice one, not a yucky one." To which Andrew replies, "Oh, I don't like love."
PS - There's a "Difficult Campground" along the Independence Pass...somebody ought to check that one out!
