It was a really busy few days in Colorado before "real" vacation started, but I wasn't at work so I guess technically it was still vacation.
I stopped by and saw Gypsy Friend and to pick up the horseshoes that he made for me to finish my wedding gift. We took a little drive around the farm before coming back for some BBQ before I hit the road to my Momma's. While we were surveying the quality of corn and the damage of the hail on some of it, I was inspired to snap this photo. Being the excellent photographer/blogger that I am, I even had to borrow Gypsy Friend's Iphone to catch it. That should make some good silage!
Tylie and I stopped for the night at Mom's and had beef and noodles waiting on us me for dinner. Mmmmm.....my favorite. Tylie was nervous that I was going to leave her there, she usually has good reason to be worried. Mom and John have a newer puppy who loves to play. Tylie does not love to play with other dogs...she is nearly human and believes herself to be above playing with other dogs when I'm around. We did take a ride around the ranch in the Gator, where Tylie managed to pull a hammy jumping in/out. I hope the cool mountain air will be healing for her while I'm away.
The next morning I drove down to Colorado Springs and met up with Grandma Mauck for lunch and some catching up. Grandma has had a very hard year, losing both a son and Grandpa. She is always excited to see us grandkids, but I think it meant even more to her this time. We had an amazing burrito and some chat time before I had to head out for my dentist appointment (and pedi).
You are welcome for not taking any pictures. Vacation FAIL!
Then I picked up Devan in Pueblo and we headed south for the big wedding.
We added another state to the trip and was shocked by how green New Mexico was. Like so shocked that we felt the need to post on Facebook to see if this part of New Mexico is usually this green or if we had witnessed some sort of apocolypse. FYI - this is on the road from Raton to Dalhart....I know I have some New Mexican readers who can weigh in on the greenness question.
We went down a day early to hit up rehearsal dinner and some quality time with some old Gunny friends. And a big time did we have! Texas surprised me with
Congratulations Tyler and Shelby!!!!!!
