We arrived safely yesterday. Shannon met us at the airport, which made the arrival extra-sweet. We’ve both really missed that kid.
Our house is in Estes Park, which is about two hours from the airport. We hadn’t eaten all day, so we stopped for a quick bite at Chick Fil-a. Then it was back into our big-ass car (that’s another story) and on to Estes Park.
The mountains are beautiful, but Estes Park, as with most communities that serve as gateways to big national parks, is a bit of a tourist trap.
After we got settled into our house, I went to the grocery store. It was crazy busy. But then, it is Labor Day Weekend.
Annelies and Yves arrived around 8:30 or so and we had a nice dinner. We were all pretty beat and went to bed relatively early.
This is what I saw when I woke up…
Our first stop of the day will be the visitor’s center at Rocky Mountain National Park for new sweatshirts.
For now, I need more coffee…
