Time has flown by...Mom, Grant and I are about to leave Casper after being here for 6 days. We had a great visit with my grandparents and this year we were here to celebrate my Grandfather's birthday yesterday. Fun! We are heading to Denver to pick Bryn up at the airport - she has been in Boise visiting Grandpa and Nana this week. I am sure she will be bored to tears by us after all of the excitement of camping, four wheeling, horseback riding and whatever else they dreamed up to thoroughly entertain her.
We had a nice 4th of July...party in Friday night and our neighborhood party on Saturday night. Plenty of firecrackers - no official fireworks this year but considering how far do-it-yourself fireworks have come since the days of bottle rockets and sparklers we had quite a show in the cove! Grant loved it and wasn't at all scared of the noise. I think we may have a little pyro in the making.
On the way up here we spent the night in Denver and I finally went to Casa Bonita. I have heard about that restaurant since I was in college and never had been so we tried it out. I must admit that cliff diving indoors was a new one on me. It was fun...Bryn especially like the arcade and playing ski-ball.
I did a lot of walking this week - 44 miles to be exact. Between Friday and Saturday I walked 33 miles and my feet are feeling it. I have a few new blisters and my plantar faciitis is pretty wicked, but I am glad I made it through. It was nice walking here as it is not nearly as humid as it is at home. Still hot enough, though! Hard to believe that in another 4 weeks it will all be over and I will have walked 60 miles in 3 days! I am looking forward to some serious time off from walking after that.
