Steamboat Springs, CO


We arrived in Steamboat Springs on Sunday after two glorious days on the road. Randy & I love traveling and always take advantage of the hours and hours we have to process life together. What a precious time we had sharing our hearts, our hurts... and our desire to trust God with ourselves and others. Anyway, we arrived at Terry & Nancy's condo and once we got everything unloaded from the van, we enjoyed a very satisfying thunderstorm. Talk about the perfect Colorado welcome!


Nancy made hamburgers and a fruit salad using the sweetest peaches I have ever had. They bought them at a roadside stand in Meeker. Truly the best. We also opened up a bottle of wine that I had brought and we relaxed while waiting for Kevin to arrive from Omaha, NE. Kevin is Terry & Nancy's son and he just finished his 4 1/2 years of active duty in the Air Force. Such a fun reunion celebration! Btw, it was 53 degrees when he arrived.


This morning we headed out for a lovely walk along the river. The air was so crisp and clean.


We are so incredibly blessed that Terry & Nancy have been our dear friends for almost 30 years! We have vacationed with them many times over the years and well, we couldn't imagine doing life without them.


We've known Kevin since he was born. Get this, his actual training expertise in the Air Force was Mandarin Chinese. I know! Can you imagine learning such a difficult language? But, Kevin's cool like that.


Downtown Steamboat is so charming. Lots of cool shops. Peculiar people. Adorable dogs. And yummy ice cream.




I know we're on vacation, but we gotta make time for blogging and facebook.


Little did I know... but Nancy was taking pics of ME taking pics of my wine & peaches shoot. Be sure to check out Nancy's blog. She has been posting about their trip to CO and her photos of the Arches National Park are simply stunning! Oh and she just posted pics of the beautiful condo we are staying at.
OK, gotta go... the guys are cooking steaks on the grill. And we're talking charcoal grilled steaks! Yum!

Linda, Terry and I are so thrilled that you and Randy are here with us! We love having you in our lives and are looking forward to some awesome days together.

Welcome to Colorado! :) I'm not surprised your peaches were delish--that part of CO is well-known for the WONDERFUL peaches that the weather patterns there produce. We wait all summer for them to be available and they've just started to show up in the stores, Yay! We eat as many as we can because we know they'll be gone soon! Try to get hold of some Olathe sweet corn if you can--you'll love that too! :)

Looks like your having a wonderful time Linda! I bet that town is so pretty and a bit cooler than Tempe right now. Have a wonderful vacation and maybe I'll see you in October. Cindy
