Late Thursday night snackin', following Patrick and Roberta's arrival in COS from Atlanta.
Eric "flew" in from Denver.
P&R stayed the weekend at Uncle Bill's.
[Meanwhile, Jason was busy in line at Wal-Mart to get his Play Station 3 - he scored Big Time.]
Yep, the first dish of brownies are half-gone already!
Part of Patrick's sobriety test?
Friday morning and back at UB's.
[At his coffee shop job, Eric is known as "Jesus."]
All six together at last. L-R: Kelly, Patrick, Lindsay, Eric, Jason and Roberta.
Are they awesome-looking or what! ... [Shot by Kyle.]
Lunching in the sun at Chipolte's.
At the head there is Kyle - Lindsay's spouse.
Time to get gnarly - in Garden of the Gods.
[Jason couldn't make it, but we think he's still gnarly.]
Kelly loves being warm.
[One of several shots by Kyle.]
They still act like newly-weds - over three years later. :)
That's Montezuma's Tower, with the infamous North Ridge on the left side.
OK - at the base of the North Ridge. Patrick goes for it.
Not many climbers have the balls to climb rope-less!
The next set of climbers in line after Patrick.
The "other climbers" on lead.
[I had "followed" on this route in late Sept.]
Telephoto: mounting the top.
Checking out the "Siamese Twins" formation.
[Lindsay & Kyle had to cut out sooner.]
P&R getting Climbing Permits at the visitors center. ... All ya have to do is look Gnarly!
[That's Zebulon Pike in the back.]
Saturday morning at the famous Omelette Parlor.
[Kelly had to work.]
[It's really hard getting people to line-up.]
But easy to get them to smile!
UB is in this one.
We drove Eric back up to Denver - and he treated us as royalty at the famous Koladi Brothers coffee brewshop, where he works.
I was treated to a fabulous cup of "shade-grown" hot chocolate.
Yep - novices in a REAL coffee shop!
Located near the University of Denver (aka DU), where Eric will graduate next May.
Late Sat. afternoon - and back in COS at Jason's pad. ..[He "moved out" on his own this summer, after he turned 18.]
It was Michigan vs Ohio State on the HUGE flat screen.
Here Patrick is taking a call on an antique Turkish phone.
Roberta talking into the mouthpiece here. ... [Right - the phone uses wireless technology.]
The wrong side, Michigan, is losing.
Kelly is checking out my cool new snow shovel (as we had stopped at the REI flagship store while in Denver).
Happy Campers (using time-delayed shutter release).
[Kelly stuck her head in front of my hand!]
Paul Jason Newman playing the Hustler here.
I think it was Patrick who cleared the table, though.
This action is while waiting for our pizza dinner at Old Chicago.
