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


Evening light in the rosebushes and boys


Mountains

Making plans


Elsie and baby having a rest


Wet kids


Silly Gilbert and Brylan

Poppa and the kids having their after-meeting popsicles Wednesday night


Lily the tree monkey


Brylan and Lily
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

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


Rissy-roo trying out the die Justin made


Mick and Grandma


Miles and Riss

Those Cotten singers




Miles showing Grandma a fish he caught. (I think!)

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.
