One of my favorites...Lydia (who's NOT a cuddler) cuddling with Grandma:
The weekend entertainment (playing "train" with the tape measure with Seth as the engine and Lydia as the caboose):
Best buddies...can't remember if they're watching the kitties, looking at the sprinklers, or waiting for Grandpa to come back in from the back yard:
One day we drove the loop around Boulder Mountain to see the Autumn leaves. What a spectacular scene with the bright yellow aspen trees against a clear blue sky. This one area of red is called the aspen heart. Aspens don't usually ever turn red, only yellow, in the fall. Legend says that an American Indian princess died here of a broken heart, causing this cluster to turn red. Kinda hard to see the shape in the photo because we saw it just before the leaves fell.
We had a little early birthday celebration for Seth, complete with a Bob the Builder cake. Can you tell he really turns on the "cheese" when there's a camera around?
Gotta love blue frosting:
Finally, two things I love about small towns, this one in particular:
Endless fields of green alfalfa showered by the chk-chk-chk-ing sprinklers:
And the bike rack at the elementary school...no one bothers to lock up:
I missed my dear husband and home, but was sad to go at the same time, and I'm already getting antsy for next year.
