Obviously not blogging.! We were fortunate to have all five grandkids within hugging distance for 8 days in July. It was exhilarating, exhausting and of course heart-warming. I couldn't get enough of my Wisconsin three in just 8 days. The rest of the summer has been spent volunteering every Friday and some unscheduled days at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and also trying to spend quality time with husband, friends, and grandkids. I remember not having any family nearby to help when we needed some time off as parents so we try to give Date-Night babysitting to our local sons and daughters-in-law every so often. To See the grandkids, go to the grandkid photo album on the left side of this blog.
Since August, through a series of timing events and an unexpected death, we have a delightful houseguest/friend who is waiting for her newly purchased house to close. She has been no problem--in fact, she is now adopted family--but we have so much fun eating outside and having long conversations during and after the meal that some "to-do's" just never get done--also some things like blogging seem to slip through the cracks of time. The three of us have so much in common that we often talk into the wee hours of the night.
I have saved some fantastic photos that I haven't had time to post, so now that September is here, I may do some catching up.
Just to give a visual boost to this post, here is a favorite place in downtown Denver that we visited recently.
