Have I said how much I love Colorado? After a really fun wedding and a reunion with Mom’s side of the family, we are able to spend a couple days with Dad’s side of the family here, at the family cabin on Electra Lake. Engineer Mountain in the background. Sharing a place that is a part of my soul with my daughter.
Oh, and the wedding reception was a lot of fun. Little sister turns out to be quite the dancer. She danced basically every dance. We had to sort of physically restrain her for the bride and groom’s dance, the father/bride and mother/groom dances, but the entire rest of the evening saw her out on the floor.
Hubby is going to have his work cut out for him in the future… the little girl boldly solicited dances with Every Single Boy, and quite a few of the men, in the room. She was quite the sensation. Danced until she had blisters on both feet, and picked out her future husband from amongst her 2nd cousins. Good times.
It’s been a great few days. So pleased that Richard won his Saturn Award, and Lord, what a gorgeous man he is. Dayum. I still remember the days when here at the cabin, we had a community phone line and you’d pick up the phone and have to listen for a moment to see whether one of the other 99 families with cabins was on the line before making a call. Now I have a wireless connection and cell service. Just a couple of years ago that was impossible, but it is rather nice to be able to keep up with my Richarding here at the lake.
Yes, Life is Good.
