My oldest son Sean and his new wife Rea came to visit us this weekend. It was great to see them. They have a very busy month coming up and then they leave for Scotland! And the plan is that they will be there for at least 4 years.
We probably won't see them again before they leave. It was so good to see them. So sad to say goodby.
While they were here, we took them on a few rides to see the area and then we took them up to Estes Park to the Rocky Mountain National Park to go hiking. What a great day. We got there nice and early and started hiking by 8am. We were only going to go to Dream Lake but then we decided to venture on and go to Lake Haiyaha which is higher up. It was quite a climb for some of us (me!), but we were so glad we did it. Isn't it just beautiful?
The lake is surrounded by boulders so you have to climb on and around them to get close to the lake; so worth the effort. All in all, it was a good day and we managed to get up to 10,000 feet!
Next post will include some quilting stuff but for now... off to update my passport so I can plan a trip to Scotland!
