(I have no decent segway here) So, there was a huge storm that hit just our town and it did more damage than the hurricane last summer. Ripped out trees and took out power lines all over town. They declared a state of emergency and we had a curfew for a couple nights. It was crazy!
The day after the externship ended we started our vacation/visit to Colorado and Kansas. We had a great time as usual. The farm is full of fun for all ages. I get to see my mommy, the kids get to see the animals, and we get to eat fair food for a few days. The big kids got to show hogs! I even put a quilt in to be judged, my mom suggested it, and got a blue ribbon, thankyouverymuch.
Hannah was driving the pickup truck, Simon was driving the skid loader behind it, and Seth was driving a tractor. Only on the farm!
We left the farm with a few tears. The kittens couldn't come home with us.
My friend Laura came with us on a trip to ride the Georgetown Loop and go on a mine tour. I have to give credit to Laura's mom for the idea.
Kids at the Denver Zoo! (Thanks, Amy for getting us in!) The Elephant is very photogenic, no?
One of the highlights for me was seeing The Bloggess (Jenny Lawson) at the Tattered Cover. She's is so awesomely bizarre and hysterical. Love. Her. I've been reading her blog for many years. Her book is snort-out-loud funny. She was brilliant in person and I'm glad I got to see her.
I have been working on a quilt too. I'm always working on something! I love Anna Maria Horner's fabrics!
