The kids and I are going to visot my parents, and siater Karen in Colorado this week.
We left home this morning. Early. :) I am so proud of the kids. A lot of them helped me around the house -getting reasy to go. I plan on having the carpets cleaned while we are gone, so the carpets needed vacuumed, and some furniture moved.
It seems to be a tradition to stop at the windmill rest stop on our way out of Iowa, on interstate 80W. So just a short time of being on the road - we stopped to see the big windmill blade. It extends the length of a fotball field. Huge.
Around lunch time - we stopped to fill up with gas and ate a picnic lunch. We had yummy York Peppermint Patty pieces. Yummy. I think trips are fun, because we take along fun snack food.
While I was napping we took a detour. But that's ok. It didn't delay us much. My confused tone sounded like yelling to the driver - so I apologized. We came into Loveland from a new direction, and that turned out ok. We saw new stuff.
We had pizza for supper. I realy like eating fod I don't cook. It was delicious. After supper we sat outdoors and enjoyed this beautiful Colorado weather!!
Now I am pooped.
I am going to try to continue our electronic free entertainment kick I am on, dragging along the kiddos kicking and screaming. And Grandpa is setting up our schedule. I don't think we have any free time while we are here. So if I don't call you, or message you, or reply to texts right away - I might be out and about and electronic free. :)
