On the way there we drove into a "brown-out" dust storm - we couldn't see more than one car ahead of us and we left Denver Tuesday morning in freezing temperatures and a blowing snow "white-out" -- we felt God's protection the whole way.
Hyder went with us --it was her first road-trip-- I'm not sure she'd have wanted to go if she'd have known it would be 24 hours on the road in 4 1/2 days.
Katie and Marshall were perfects hosts -- we packed a lot in the 2 1/2 days we got to spend together. Marshall had to make rounds both mornings and so we took off for Golden to have a late lunch when he got home
|Terry and I went to Golden two years ago on Spring Break --it's a quaint spot that is rich in Western culture so we jumped at the chance to go back with Marshall and Katie.|
|Sunday and Monday temperatures were AWESOME -we loved our outdoor time!|
|We made it official on Monday and adopted Charlie.|
|Callie, Hyder and Charlie all became fast friends.|
|He turned out to be a great traveler and has made the transition to his new home quite well -- Campbell and Sydney LOVE him|
|BTW -- Marshall broke the news to his mom that he's had a Harley for quite some time and to my first and loudest question:--YES - he does wear his helmet.|
