Rocky Mountain High-Colorado

We recently returned from a trip to Boulder to see #1 son and goldilocks. This is why they call it Boulder. These are everywhere.

Boulder sits in the shadow of the Flat Irons. My camera is working so much better so I had fun taking pictures of the mountains and anything else I saw.

We got to see our new grand-dog Chloe.

And our original grand-dog Faith.


There is nothing like reading directions and putting together furniture with a minimal amount of tools for family bonding.

Goldilocks and I took a hike.

Remind us next time not to take any Flexi-leads. In between many episodes of untangling ourselves from the dog's leashes we were able to take of few good pictures.



Oh how I love Colorado. The weather is good...most of the time. The people are friendly and I love the casualness of it. No one in too much of a hurry to be friendly.
And it has my two favorite people.

Glad you are back safley and that you enjoyed yourselves!! What a great place to visit - slower way of life would be good huh!!!

Clare said...

Glad you had fun on your winter break, Wendy! Colorado is beautiful and I think I would especially enjoy Boulder. How were the animals while you were away? Did they miss you?

Goldilocks said...

Boulder loved having you, and did number one son and I!!

I forgot the "so" in that last one. Oops!

Welcome home, isn't it nice when you love the ones your loved ones love (say THAT 3X fast!).

Looks like you had a wonderful time.

Thanks Beth, We did have a good trip and I'm glad you like the picture.

Heidi, I crave a slower pace and am glad my son and his girl are in that kind of place. Especially since last year they were in L.A.
Although they are very busy so maybe don't see it as a slow pace.

Clare, You would enjoy Boulder. I'm not sure who wouldn't. The animals did not miss me a bit. My neighbor overfeeds so they love it when she's in charge.

Goldilocks, I miss you both already!!!!! And Faith and Chloe!

Holly, I can't tell you how nice it is to love the one your loved one loves.

That American Eskimo is so sweet. Makes me think of the one I had several years ago. Sigh.

Wonderful pics of your kids and grandkids :)

I agree about Colorado, too.
We've been many times. Haven't been back for several years now, but we have a family vacation planned for May to Golden and Denver. I can't wait! I hope I'm able to walk well enough to do some hiking :)

frugalmom, She is very smart and sweet. Now I know why they were used in the circus. She is very athletic.

Lisa, Golden is so beautiful. Before I got to Golden I wondered why it was called Golden....then I drove into Golden and it was...well, golden. Golden plains and grassland. Like a horse person's paradise.
Sounds like a great trip to me!
