Headed home

Left Colorado for the long drive home. We had 2 cars and luckily we had 2 drivers for each car. We made good time, we didn't hit any bad weather, traffic jams or construction. We stopped in Amarillo to eat at Rosas Cafe, a tradition. We made it home in 17 hours with stops.

Bye bye Colorado

How much longer?

The seatbelt left a mark on my face when I was napping

One more day in Denver

We spent the day with my niece, Jyl. We went to lunch at Chipotle and then the girls went to a movie and the guys went to play golf. That night we went to a Mexican restaurant to celebrate Makenzie's 19th birthday.

See Dale, you're not the only one who can fly a plane

Who needs plates? Not us!

Dinner to celebrate Makenzie's birthday with Jyl and Nathan's families.

We told Isaac if he concentrated enough he could open his can with his mind.
While his eyes were closed we opened it and he opened his eyes and said "cool"

Leaving Utah for Colorado

We left Provo and headed to Denver. We stopped in Glenwood Springs to have lunch with Dale's sisters, Terri, Kae and Andy. We then continued, but stopped on Vail Pass to play in the snow. 10 minutes of playing in the snow keeps me tied over for a year! We made it to Denver that night and left the kids with their cousins and Dale and I headed to my mom's house.

Bye Bye Provo

Lunch with family

The fun at Vail Pass begins

So much snow

Glad I have him to keep me warm!

Sometimes I wear shorts and walk through a few feet of snow to take pictures
