Of late Wonderful Guy and I travelled to the State of the Utes to see the Grandbebes that live there. And also their parents. Of course their parents too!
It had been way too long on both accounts. This trip was a road trip, and whether it happened or not depended on the weather. We lucked out, and had fine a fine travel experience. Of course we had a fine travel experience! Because we had a great visit with the bebes and their parents.
See…the thing is...I learned stuff. I learned that some of I-80 runs at 7500 feet. And also, that checking weather is good and well. But not complete. One should also check road conditions when travelling….there. Yep. We spent some down time in Rawlins, but yea! They opened the road back up after 2 1/2 hours!
Only to have Hiway 287 closed 4 minutes before we reached
. So we spent an extra night there, before
heading north and east an extra 120 miles to go south on I-25 to get home. Laramie
Under blue skies the whole way! It was sideways snow…blowing snow was the issue. Our direct routes home didn’t open up until way after we reach our fair burg, had lunch, and were all unpacked!
It was excellent to have a chance to catch up with Middle Daughter and have a chance to get acquainted with the grandbebe girls. They are cutie-pies. How could they not be though? I say they could not!
And then we travelled to
in which to see Only
Step Son marry the Lovely Fiancee. The
wedding was downsized from a big planned affair in June, to a intimate
engagement in March. They chose simple
and less complex and less stress as the big plans started snowballing. Desert Crazy
And I got a brief visit, once again, with Dearest Sister. She and Car Guy celebrated Wonderful Guy’s birthday together with Lovely Step Daughter. We took in the Shelby Museum, did a drive by of the Gold & Silver Pawn (home of Pawn Stars), and dropped some quarters at the Pin Ball Hall of Fame, where we all got a big kick out of the South Park game. After walking Molly, the grand-pup, we finished of the day with the whole wedding gang at dinner. I think the Guy had a good day of celebration.
(as seen on TV!)
We were up the next morning early for the flight home, and while it was not the best travel experience I have had, we made it safely. And it was good to go somewhere warmish, though, and break out of wintry weather for a bit.
