Road Trip....Part 1

Well...we made it to Castle Rock.

The drive was...well, it wasn't too bad. It was actually way better than expected. It was; however, a veeeeeerrrrrry long drive. We weren't rushing - so maybe that made it a bit longer. Or, maybe that just allowed the Cuties a lot more stops to get out, stretch, and wiggle away their car boredom.

So far - we've witnessed:
  • an awesome AZ sunrise (yep, you can't find those just anywhere)
  • a loooong stretch of absolute nothing in New Mexico
  • a Diner, Drive-ins, and Dives site - Backroad Pizza (definite dive, yet deeeee-licious)
  • the many ups and downs of the CO highway speed limits (which apparently you MUST obey)
  • a sideways rainstorm with temps in the high 50's
  • Brady's surprise, shock and confusion when we arrived at the Osborn's
  • a Rockies game at Coors Field - definitely awesome
  • and yes, July weather in the 80's while my humble abode weathered in the 116 zone
Don't worry, Mom (although, since you never read this - you're not worrying) we are not moving!!!

Tomorrow, we plan to take the Cuties along with their cousin, Hayden, to something kid-friendly. We haven't quite decided...we're thinking maybe the Denver Children's Museum or the Denver Zoo. Who knows??'re going to have to wait a bit for photos - my computer is taking waaaaay to long to upload and I don't know how to lessen the size/pixel/or whatever it's called to make it easier.

It's great to read that you made it there safely and the kids are both still alive!
