Still More Colorado pictures

Guess what? Only one more week to go and I will be done Colorado pictures! I know to people uninvolved, these are probably boring, but I took about umpteenmllion (give or take a few squillion) pictures, and these were the ones I just loved. So I did try to reduce the number for your viewing pleasure. Just be sure to understand that these pictures and people are rather delightful to me.  

We got stuck in a cattle drive on the way to meeting Sunday. Seriously. 

Cousins hanging out

These two were great pals. Not surprising, since they are only 2 and a half months apart.

Paonia has their Cherry Days festival right around Fourth of July, so it is a combination celebration

Fair food

Those Pearson girls

My sweet baby

The kids made a Happy Fourth of July sign

Hanging out after the parade

Justin carving a replacement die so the kids could play their Pet-opoly game

It wouldn't have flown in Las Vegas, since it was a little weighted towards some numbers, but it worked!

Grandpa and Grandma

Love this picture!

Hanging out

Lily and Brylan enthusiastically getting into the RC car

Again - lovely pics of what looks like a fantastic time! I love those trombone playing clowns - ha! Even some people I know from here! It took me a while to realize that Jocelyn is connected to you guys - ;) We were in the same field before they moved.
