We moved into a great rental house in Boulder, near Chautauqua. We met family at the airport, picked up friends at the airport, hosted a Welcome dinner for 70 at Chautauqua, Boulder, visited with dear long time friends at the house, helped set up for The Wedding at Riverbend in Lyons, CO, attended the wedding, walked Jesse's dog, Ruby, down the aisle, tried not to blubber as we listened to Jesse and Erin's heartfelt and eloquent vows, talked and laughed afterward. The day after the wedding (Saturday), Dave went back up to Lyons to break down, then later in the day we fed and enjoyed the company of probably 60 friends and family at the house. After a good night's sleep we took our houseguests/wonderful friends back to the airport for their flights home.
Sunday afternoon Lewis wondered where everyone went? He loved having a hand to pet him whenever he wanted....who wouldn't?
Our week in a very small nutshell. I'll blog more later this week but for now I'm still reeling.
Tomorrow we leave Golden after being here since the end of April. Its been a wonderful time, we've seen a lot and spent good, quality time with our only child and his beautiful bride.
Rifle Gap State Park is our Wednesday destination. No internet there. On to Vernal on Thursday and I don't know what the "connection" situation is there so wait for me?
Here are a few pictures from our busy week.....
