The Family Arrives!

On Tuesday of this past week, Justin, Keelie, Jenna, Glory, Marlow, Molly, and Jackson arrived in South Fork. They had all left home on Sunday and gone to Colorado Springs for a couple of nights.

The first thing Wednesday morning we took out and stopped at Treasure Falls.

Then, we later picnicked in Pagosa Springs by the river. We met up with Jared and Jonah; they had flown to NM and rented a car to get to us.
So...by 2:00 pm on Wednesday, all of us were together in Colorado! I can't stress enough what this does for Mom's/Nanna's heart!
Thursday was my birthday. Justin, Keelie, Jonah, Jared, Jenna, and Marlow did a 1/2 day rafting on the Rio Grande. Later, we had lunch at their cabin where the kids gave me special birthday cards and treats. After the little ones napped, we drove to Creede. That evening the kids treated me to a birthday meal back in South Fork. This was followed by nature journaling time with Keelie for the little ones and glow sticks with Jenna beside the fire.

On Friday, we rented jeeps for the day to go up in the mountains.

Saturday morning we drove to the Amish bakery, "Worth The Drive Bakery." Yes, it is always worth the drive; the fried pies are scrumptious! We had lunch at the Malt Shop after some time for the kiddos at the city playground. The rest of the day we just enjoyed hanging out at the cabin. We brought in Mexican food and had some hot tub time. The kids began packing up and then got back to some Canasta.
Unfortunately, this morning they all had to leave.
I wouldn't take ANYTHING for the times we all have together! Love all of you so much!
