Being on a road trip is busy work!
We’ve stood on the summit of a 14,000 mountain, thought several times we were going to die via car plummeting off the side of a cliff, and toured Vail. Actually, all of that was yesterday! The kids were so tired they begged to stay home today and slept 12 hours last night.
We’re in a really nice campground. It is very scenic and extremely quiet. The only people here in the middle of the week seem to be full time retired campers who never leave their rigs. Our neighbors are great and even have a standard poodle.
I think we’ve all acclimated to the altitude. It took awhile! Our campground is at two different elevations, we are camped about 100 feet above the office/game room/laundry room. It amazed us how hard that climb up the hill was for the first few days.
Today we stayed “home” and did laundry, attempted to wipe away some of the Nebraska dust that accumulated when we were in the strong winds of the plains, and I worked most of the day. Today we went from tourists to people who are living on the road. Bret is making split pea soup for dinner and the kids are outside writing a jingle about our recent adventures (Grandma C’s scavenger hunt is keeping them very busy!). We’ll post the jingle when it’s done!
Make sure you are clicking on The View Out Our Window occasionally to see what the kids are up to. They’ve each posted once and are anxious for comments. We’re having trouble right now with uploading photos, but stay tuned, the posts will be visually enhanced shortly!
