Here's a shout out of thanks to the few blessed souls who have commented on my blog. I know some of you don't know how to leave comments so I will tell you: at the bottom of each post there is a "comments". If you click on it you can then leave a message in the comments box. You don't have to have a google account, but you can sign up for one if you want to under the comment box. So try it!

And for those of you who just don't comment because you are either out of time or lazy or maybe you don't like my blog (then I ask you why are you reading it?); well I take pity on you and if I were to die tomorrow you may feel guilty that you didn't leave your words. J/K, J/K its okay I'm not mad really.....

Pagosa Springs, CO Trip Aug 9-12, 2007

Here is Jeff at the Piedra River. He learned the joys of throwing rocks into the river. So the whole time we were there if there was water a rock had to be thrown.
We hiked to Piedra Falls (in the background). It was a short one mile hike perfect for the kids. John is sporting his new camping hat

This is everyone who came to Pagosa Springs. (We are missing half of my family) From left to right is my niece Danielle, my brother Brent, his wife Nicole, my Dad Dave, Jeffrey, my mom Betty, John, Steph, and a crying uphappy Sammy.

Playing in Grandpa's truck. We drove up to Purgatory Resort near Durango to ride the alpine slide but just as we got there it rained and they closed the slide.

Rafting on the Animas River in Durango. I'm in the front with John and my parents are sitting in the back. August is NOT the best time to raft. This was one of a few thrill rapids for the trip.

First Tie

Jeff wanted to wear Daddy's tie. I tried to tie it but it didn't turn out. So this is after John saved me. He needs a clip on!

Hiking Devil's Head in Rampart Range

We went camping for the first time with the kids then the next day hiked to Devil's Head where there is a fire lookout tower that you can climb up. There is a man at the top who works there and has been doing it for 23 summers. He packs in his food once a week and gets water from snow melt. And he is real tired of people asking him the same questions over and over. The picture above is of John's sister Katrina, her husband Patrick, John, John's brother Spencer and Reno the dog. The kids are on the backs of Patrick and John but you can't see them, and I'm taking the picture so you don't get to see me (sorry).

Sammy fell asleep and this is him just waking up.

At the top of the tower, Patrick and Spencer.
