Day Twelve Recap

Friday, May 14, 2010

Well, we've been here in Monument for twelve days. We've spent time with family, time with friends, eaten out way too many meals, gone to four movies (The Losers, Iron Man 2, Clash of the Titans, Robin Hood), taken a couple (not near enough) bike rides for sightseeing, sold a few items on eBay and caught up on a few chores.

We've had daily highs ranging from 39 to almost 80. We've had nighttime lows in the 20's. We've had rain, sleet, snow, wind and sometimes even a little sun. LOL!

All in all, it's been a good twelve days. This weekend is tied up with graduation activities for my oldest daughter. It has taken her 13 years of hard work but she has finally made it!

On Monday we head north, eventually ending up in Seattle on June first. We hope the weather will warm up, allowing us to do a little sightseeing on the bikes on the way. Time will tell...

Today we headed out to Rosie's Diner for breakfast...we were out of milk. I had to snap a photo of our favorite waitress, Alice. What a great gal...we've enjoyed chatting with her. Again, if you are in the Colorado Springs/Monument area, be sure to stop in. Both the service and the food is great. We'll miss you, Alice!

Till next time - keep on rollin',

  1. You two were just pulling out of Colorado Heights as we were getting ready to pull in--I'm sorry we didn't get the chance to meet you. Safe travels on the way to Seattle. We'll be there too, but not until the end of August when we land there for our Alaska cruise.

  2. Enjoy Seattle. We have 2 little granddaughters there (and their mom and dad). We'll be volunteering at Dash Point State Park summer 2011 to be near them.


Love to hear from you - drop a few words and we'll reply!
