May 18, 2011 Colorado National Monument

Once again, scenery overload!  The weather was just as forecast, rain rain rain...but we decided we were going anyway!  So, after showers, Cinder walk, groceries, we headed out - first stop at the post office to mail my daughter a package to Afghanistan - then off we went to Colorado National Monument. 

19 miles - of twists, turns, breathtakingly beautiful scenery.  Here is a small sample:

We stopped in a little cafe in Fruita and had a bite of lunch - it was wonderful, but pics are in David's phone and I haven't figured out how to get them out of there yet!

We came home (Tanaya & Rick's driveway) and I started cooking...I made marinated asparagus, broccoli salad, and a 5 lb meatloaf, mashed potatoes, peas & rolls for dinner - and then after watching some TV and chatting, we had S'Mores...yep, Rick had built a fire and got all the ingredients, so we roasted marshmallows and put 'em on graham crackers and hershey bars...YUM! 

Tomorrow we will be rolling the 'home' over to the Moose club.  Here in GJ they have a wonderful, smoke free Moose Lodge with 30 amp electric hookups, water and a charge except that they ask you to participate in at least 1 meal a week - like that won't be hard :) 

Kaeleigh went to doc today - baby has made no more progress right now - so we'll wait - besides, they are still having lots of snow in the mountains and we don't want to travel in that! 

Life is what you make it - and we make ours the best we can!
