Is it Time for Change?

It was a long, crazy and amazing day! I got the pictures' uploaded, but have too much going on right now to do a full write up. In the meantime, you can go to our smugmug site and view the pictures.

Either Laura or I will get you the full write up soon! I'll say this; The energy in the stadium was amazing...

I think change is in the air!

From DNC

Greetings from the security line at Invesco Field for Barack Obama's
acceptance speech!

We were not lucky enough to win the ticket lottery, but it's good to
have relatives in high places ;)

I'll bet the line is a mile long. More as we get in!

UPDATE- We got through the line in about an hour and half. The cell networks were pretty much overloaded and all the signals mixing around the stadium from the media made any updates impossible. The mood and energy in the stadium was unbelievable!

Look for an update once I sort through and post some pictures. Rich

Long time, no update

Yes, we've been lame with our updates, so I'll have to put a few events into one blog.

About two weeks ago we had so much fun at Beaver Creek that we took our friends David & Aliza up there. Aliza & I went on an "advanced" horseback trail ride. The advanced part meant that we loped (went faster than usual) and did some steep terrain. The boys took their bikes for some chairlift mountain biking, but only got 2 runs in before a thunderstorm closed the lifts. Here's a picture of David's bike riding the chairlift:

Last weekend Rich went on a bike ride and I went to Lafayette to chase cows. Little Horse does pretty well at anything I toss at her, but she REALLY loves cows! I work on walking her around them so she doesn't always think she has to run after them. But if my heels just brush her sides (or I even think about going faster), she's off like a racehorse and I'm hanging on because she'll turn on a dime to keep with a cow.

Last week we finally got to do something I've been wanting to do since we moved here....go to Water World!!! We thought we'd wait until Labor Day last summer, to avoid the crowds, but they closed on Labor Day! So this time we went after most schools had started, but before the park closed. We read up on tips on my favorite review site, Yelp. We learned to bring water shoes to avoid our feet getting torn up on the cement. They got torn up anyway, but we had fun. It was a beautiful, 80 degree sunny day. There were all kinds of rides and hardly any lines. We spent about 4 hours there, including lunch, then came home and took naps. These things take a lot out of us!

We were going to do the Monster Scooter Ride, sponsored by a local scooter store today, but it's been in the low 50's and raining since Thursday night, so the ride was cancelled. We're loving the cool temps, but we're getting a little tired of all the rain. It hasn't rained this much since April of last year. The news said we've gotten more rain than we have for April-July....combined! Guess the dry spell is over.

Below I've posted some pics from our day at Water World:
