Dad and I made it to Colorado safely, and we’ve both enjoyed our time with the family so far. Hannah is just as cute as she was when I saw her in June…in fact, she might be even cuter. 😉 I am so happy to be here!
When we arrived we all went to dinner then we attended a church service. I’m generally not a big fan of church, but I’m glad I was at this service. It was as if God was speaking to me throughout the message. Maybe I’ll talk about that more in a different post.
Following church, we went out for ice cream which was fantastic. I wanted a freshly made waffle bowl so I asked if I could have their small serving of ice cream rather than the size they usually serve up in the bowl, and it was no problem. It would have been easy over a year ago for me to say to myself “They probably won’t do that” as a justification to eat way too much, but that’s not how I live anymore. It’s not even my gut reaction. 🙂 And the small serving was still more than enough to enjoy, and enjoy it I did.
Hannah liked her ice cream too. She definitely fills her role as a part of this ice cream loving family. 🙂 Now we’re in for the evening, and though it’s not late at all, I’m sleepy. I guess that’s what happens when one wakes up and 5am and travels most of the day.
Dad is the one who should be tired. He did 90% of the driving while I napped and caught up on episodes of Burn Notice – my second favorite show on USA behind White Collar. Now I’m going to do some reading (something I love to do though I didn’t much in Oklahoma) then maybe I’ll drift to sleep early this evening.
It would be great to get a restful night of sleep so I can enjoy every moment with my family tomorrow. I’m hosting Friend Makin’ Mondays this week too so come back to link up! If you’ve never participated, I hope you will. It’s a great way to connect to people with great blogs, and it’s fun to get to know more about each other. Until then…
Good night from Colorado….
