We're supposed to be up at 4:45am. *laughs* So a quick account...
We left as soon as Jet got home from school, and stopped in Colorado Springs at a Noodles and Company so that we could use my birthday gift certificate with them. Jet was so very happy to find that they were exactly like the one at home. We've gone to so many hotels, Jet just moved right into our room and went to sleep very happily. The hotel breakfast fit the boys quite well, but John knew my tastes too well and took me to a nice coffee shop in the morning where I got a lovely cranberry muffin and a really nice mocha from a lady that told us that she hated Starbucks, so was very, very careful picking her coffee for flavor.
That was really nice.
I was able to get Atole and Pinon pancakes. Atole is a blue corn and Pinon are local pine nuts, and the pancakes were delicious and unique. Jet really loved his big, buttermilk pancake and four slices of bacon. *laughs* He was so very happy.
We got to John's brother's house. Walt and Cathie greeted us happily. We'd just seen them a few weeks ago, but it was really good to see them again. I had trouble sleeping in the hotel, so I just went and napped for most of the afternoon while the boys played with Bucky balls and visited with everyone. That was really cool.
It was really fun that the kitchen was just full of recipe magazines and we just had a great time just going over all kinds of recipes and possibilities.
We thought there might be a Special Shapes Glow tonight, and we checked various web cams as the wind was up a little. Finally we left and tried to go there, but didn't get there until the fireworks were already going off, and they didn't even let us go into the parking lot. Ah well. We had ten minutes, then, to make it to the local Costco, and managed it just in time. We got discount tickets for tomorrow's fiesta. It should be fun. But early!! *laughs*
So off to bed.
