Quickie

This is a quickie. You know, gets the job done but, not quite as satisfying as the full meal deal. Ignore all typos, punctuation issues, and how poorly written this is.....

Ok, Update:

We left Naturita a day early. This worked best for all parties. Deb was able to bring her daughter back to college the day she wanted to go, and we were able to get across the mountain a day early.

I am sitting in the shadows of the mountains watching the last remaining light glow behind the peak. We are in a campground in Estes Park. The expensive firewood is crackling (not worthy of it's money - should be crackling a lot more for the price). I am however listening to my children argue, wrestle, and not enjoying the fire.

Oh, look to the left there go a doe and her three fawns not making a sound, 20 yrds away........ good eye sprout #1

We are here for another night (after tonight). Looking to spend a whole day in the Rocky Mountain National park tomorrow. Possibly hook up with a blog friend and her family to boot! Yippy!!

The kids have been annoying in the van, but when one remembers that they are kids. AND when we take the time to remember that they are flatlanders who have been thrown up to 11,000 ft. and that there schedule is thrown to wack along with the fact that they haven't seen their house or beds for a week now, they are doing excellent.

More later as the campground has wi fi! No cell reception, but wi fi!!!!!

Hang in there. Vacations are always tough with the young ones. My son told me today that he remembers every detail of the trip I took him on to Cape Breton when he was 8. I though he hated it. Apparently he loved it!Kids are kids!

Yahoo! I was thinking it would be a week before I'd hear from you. And here you are! wifi at the campground, who knew! HA! I should have met you at the campground today. Ft. Collins is not far from Estes. I'm sure your tent could have fit one more small adult! Ha! I am so exhausted from driving that I could sleep out with the bears! Hope you ate a smore for me. Mwaah!
