We just spent the last week and a half moving Mike's mom back to the midwest. We drove and the track out was long and grueling.
Our trip there involved a drive up I-15 through Salt Lake City to I-80 through Wyoming. We planned a stay in Cheyenne and there was no room at the Inn for us (failed to make reservations in case we didn't make it that far!) due to a baseball tournament. After searching for almost an hour and a half we found one room with one king sized bed and that room went to Mike's brother, Mother and our kids. We (the monster drivers) slept in our Explorer and I found out that I was not as young as I used to be!
We trekked on and finally made it, unloaded the truck and began our family visits. We stayed with Mike's dad first in Carter Lake, Iowa and made a trip to the Old Market in Downtown Omaha, Nebraska. I cannot believe how downtown is expanding, building and looking so great! Everything was beautiful and green.
We spent the Fourth of July holiday at my brother's house in Cheyenne Estates across from Tiburon in Gretna, Nebraska. It was so great to be with family and relish the four days we had to spend there!
The weather was very humid and seemed like in the nineties, temperature wise. Everyone told us Las Vegas was roasting but I couldn't wait to get back. I would rather take the heat over the humidity. I know, I am an odd duck!
We left early Friday morning and drove to Grand Junction, Colorado. I thought of some of my favorite bloggers: Mariana Wagner (Colo Springs) when we were driving through Denver and Doug Lindstrom when we were driving through Loveland. I couldn't believe the copious amounts of snow that still hung around from Loveland to Vail Pass and we even encountered snow for about 1 minute when we were on the Vail side of Vail Pass!
It was a beautiful drive and when we hit St George and took a break it was a beautiful balmy 107 degrees with the blast heat furnace wind blowing. I could smell home!
My kids stayed back and will be visiting grandparents, aunts and uncles for another three weeks while Mike and I enjoy cleaning and organizing the home for the next couple of days and having it stay that way for several weeks.
I worked on the trip a bit, it is so great to have a PDA now. It seems like I can go anywhere and conduct business without worrying about logging on to a computer! So tomorrow I start back to working the long days but it is SOOO good to be home! Sigh!
I promised Tony Marriott I would take lots of pictures and I sure had plenty of opportunities but my camera got packed up in the moving van and I was just plain too beat by the time we were coming home!
Miss Desiree wrote me a nice personal note this AM asking where I have been! There is the synopsis!All the Best,
