Travelog part 2: Castle Rock, Denver, Boulder

Monday August 21 Laura and I headed to friends Curtis and Jeane's home in Castle Rock. That IS Castle Rock, as seen from Jeane's back yard.
It was hot, which Colorado always manages to be whenever I visit, but that didn't slow us down a bit. Jeane's daughter Jennifer agreed to drive us to downtown Denver to see oncology hospitals, which was the focus of the trip for Laura, as she considers where she might want to live next year.
Added bonus: Downtown Denver was mid-Cow Parade. Laura saw the NYC and Houston Cow Parades, so this was her third! The next day we drove up to Boulder Colorado and walked the outdoor mall, pausing for a the picture in the split boulder.

Boulder had great shopping and a yummy restaurant "The Kitchen", don't miss if you head there.
Highlight of the time was getting to meet the EIGHT grand kids that Jeane has been bless with by two of her three children in the past eight years. Twins and an adopted child from Ukraine figures in the mix. It was such a joy to see the "Prayer Projects" frolicking about, as there were several anxious moments involved in having these children arrive.

Jennifer, Laura and Jeane and Cow. I should have written down Cow's names, as they are always puns, like "udder joy".

Anyway, it was a MOOOvelous Memory! Posted by Picasa
