Night one on Indian Summer (yes that is Dad’s hair there in the middle), thank goodness for the Kokopelli
We had a great week, Jessica loved the boat rides on Indian Summer (the ski boat) and enjoyed playing on the beach picking up shells and playing with rock. That girl loves her rocks, that is probably one of the first words she learned. We did all the normal things at Powell; went sight seeing, tubing, attempted the air chair, de-pooped the boat, fixed the batteries on the Kokopelli (house boat), wake boarded, field dressed 2 inch wake board gash to the brother-in-law head, found medic in the early hours of the morning, and had a great time.After the long car ride home (Jessica wasn’t too excited to sit in the car seat again) we came home and started preparing ourselves for our next vacation. We were to leave again in 9 days to go to Silverthorne Colorado for a Miller reunion. Well, after one day of being home I get a call at work saying that we are now flying to Denver as there is no way we are turning right around and sticking Jessica in the car for 18 hours, it was a great decision. During that those 9 days of being home I had about 5 estimates on homes to complete which required me to work all day come home for diner and return to work again till the early hours of the morning. I still am not sure why they call it vacation, as you have to do so much work to get ready to go and when you get back that you just need another vacation. Upon arriving in Colorado we rented our car and headed up the canyon as we were driving we passed this really slow moving blue minivan pulling a turtle trailer behind and knew from the puffs of smoke coming out of the old minivan that it was Todd and the gang (Yes, Linda you have my vote you need a new car after 16 years it is time). We laid on the horn to see a bald man looking and wondering who the heck was honking at this slow moving vehicle.
Too excited about the rock art to stop for a picture
She slept half the time, we stopped in Copper Mountain and round around there for a while and found a rock garden which Jessica loved. We made the mistake of feeding Jessica as when we got to bottom of the trail a mile from the bike shop we ended up cleaning out the bike trailer :). But she was in good spirits and had fun other then that.
