Roberta flew in Thursday night (7/26). This is now Friday morning at UB's.
Brayden never cries when GUB holds him!
Brayden, Jason and Eric talking shop.
Oh, it's my Aunt Roberta.
Kelly's turn. [Her cell phone is attached to her.]
Brayden is now five weeks old.
[Then we all went to Manitou Springs to check out Kelly's new job (starting next Monday) at an ice cream/chocolate parlour - and we had lunch at Marilyn Monroe's favorite pizza place!]
Later in the day, Kyle has now joined us back at the ranch.
Dessert time (yes, we ate dinner first).
Ron has joined the scene.
I think it's a game of Taboo?
The Coors can shows a Colorado mtn range, just like in John Fielder's "Colorado" book.
Isn't that way cool!
OK, Saturday afternoon now - after we all had brunch at The Egg & I (and Roberta drove back home closely hugging Jason on his big Honda motorcycle).
Kelly likes to ventilate her knees. :)
Girls love electronic gadgets!
Happy sibs - all but Patrick.
Someone didn't get enough sleep last night!
A new game: "Fact or Crap."
Both tuckered out now.
Now a card game - something like War.
Keeping each other company.
[Lindsay got up later and fixed us all a terrific lasagne dinner.]
OK, Sunday morning - and the only sib who showed up for the climb of Eagle Peak was Gnarly Roberta. Peak looming in the background.
It tops out at 9368', a gain of close to 2K feet in less than two miles - so fairly steep.
I failed to have my camera ready when the mountain lion checked us out and licked my hand!
Temporarily trapped in a swarm of British AF cadets, on exchange with the USAFA.
Pretty slim waterfall today. I've seen it with a lot of water (and with a lot of ice).
Right beside the trail - a climbing garter snake (head at top now hidden).
Being a Boot Camp veteran in Atlanta, this was a piece of cake for Roberta.
Some people seem to think that God created Aspens just for them to practice their initials. :(
At last, a little levelness: the Aspen Grove.
The wildflowers were rioting ...
... but Roberta kept her cool.
[Sorry, I somewhat mis-focused this and the next one.]
