Yesterday I returned from a lovely Colorado get-away. It was lovely for a number of reasons, not the least of which being that I got away from my East Texas home-sweet-sauna and got away to the yes-you-may-actually-need-a-jacket-here Rocky Mountains. Four generations of family members gathered to celebrate four family birthdays, and the centerpiece of this festive rendezvous was my dad’s 80th birthday on July 2.
Apparently all of Colorado loves my dad because they were shooting off fireworks and throwing parades. It was pretty sweet. Also, pretty sweet for me was the chance to spend five days with Harper Sparrow who is now two months old and steadily growing in adorableness.
I took lots of pictures and so did my brother, sister, daughter, and son-in-law. Today I posted an album on facebook containing mostly my images along with some of theirs. If you’d like a peek, click here. (Feel free not to notice the inordinate number of baby pictures in the mix. I may be slightly obsessed.)
