A Week in Colorado

We just got home from a week in Colorado where we visited our son, who lives in Pueblo, and celebrated my husband's 50th birthday. We had a great time - we took the cog train to the summit of Pike's Peak, ran through the Garden of the Gods, and visited the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, where we met Olympic Gold and Bronze medal winner wrestler Rulon Gardner. On Friday we took in a Colorado Rockies game, which was a lot of fun, even though the Rockies lost to the Phillies.

I read a couple of good books on the long car trip - I highly recommend Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell, and I'm Not the New Me by Wendy McClure.
