What's better than time in Colorado? Time in Colorado with your two daughters!
Aimee, Sarah and I enjoyed a few days away together in early June ~ a first for us since the
girls have been married. I'm hoping we can do it again some time ~ it was so much fun.
Sarah and I picked Aimee up at the airport and we headed out to Summit County. It was cool and rainy the first couple of days but we managed...scrapbooking for much of a day, shopping at the outlet malls, dinner out. One night we watched not just one, but two chick flicks! Catching up on all the latest, remembering days gone by, planning for our family time in Wisconsin in July...conversation flowed easily and non-stop.
The day we headed back to Denver it was a pretty sunny day so we took Loveland Pass up and over the Continental Divide, stopping along the way for some pictures.
Friday night we joined 40 of Sarah friends for a shower in her honor. Everyone had an opportunity to introduce themselves and tell how they knew Sarah. Lots of stories were shared ~ funny, encouraging, and affirming of Sarah as well.
Sarah had requested I make a jean quilt for Baby J out of pieces of jeans from Hagen family members. It was a challenge for me (and for my sewing machine) but it turned out well. It will fit right in with the Cowboy theme in the baby's new room!
