"Our Last Day in Colorado......."

Our morning started off as usual over at Donna and Henry's. Donna had gone to get her hair done and do a few last minute errands prior to Cindy's wedding that afternoon. Had I mentioned Donna's daughter, Cindy, was getting married while we were in Colorado? It was to take place that afternoon, and when we left the reception, we would be saying our goodbyes to the family, until the big family reunion in Des Moines, being held in July.

This is the view from Donna and Henry's back deck. In the photo are from left to right: Don, Henry, and David.

Don standing by the water feature that Donna and Henry built. They also have a waterfall that extends from near this pond, down to a lower patio area. The yard actually has 3 levels. The main yard, the lower patio, and the lowest level which has a shed and some more garden area.

Don and Michael.....

"The Three Stooges". Michael, Don, and Henry.

The wedding party photo. I only know Cindy, the bride, her husband, Nathan, and Cindy's son, Jacob.

The next morning, Don and I started our drive home to Wisconsin. We had a beautiful day for traveling, sunny and cool, which turned into sunny and hot the further east we drove. :) We saw some of the destruction from the tornado which hit Nebraska and Iowa earlier in the week. I 80 had been closed until late on Friday for clean up......luckily, we came through the area on Saturday. Other than that, the drive home was uneventful. We drove as far as Iowa City that day, leaving a short drive for Sunday morning, arriving home by 10 AM.
