The Ella Tour Day 4 ---- and older pictures

Today we drove from Grand Junction to the Denver area. We saw some beautiful sights especially through the Rockies that I managed not to get any pictures of. We were very late leaving our hotel this morning and therefore didn't arrive in Denver until 5pm. We made a quick stop to see our friends from TX who happened to be visiting the Denver area 15 minutes from my cousin. Then we headed to my cousin's where they had a wonderful dinner waiting to be eaten followed by birthday cake for Joe as today is his birthday. It is beautiful here!!! Tomorrow will be the beginning of the long trek to Texas.

I was also finally able to download all of my pictures thus far so bear with the large amount of photos.

We just got home from our road trip - so I had to come and catch up.

Great news about the results of the test - I'm so glad you were able to go on your road trip. I am so sad that we missed the BBQ. On Monday night we were eating dinner by Yellowstone lake and I was thinking that you were probably all together having a great BBQ. Now I will just have to come to California to meet you and Ella. We hopefully will make it there sometime next year.

Your pictures are so cute - love the one of the escapee down the hall. And I also love the one of Ella holding the book - Carter loves to look at books too. So cute. Good luck on the rest of your road trip - having just spent 10 hours in the car today - I don't envy your drive to Texas.
