In order to ‘splain that, Lucy… we have to go back to the month of June. I’m going to let my good friend Instagram tell the story:
On June 16th, Fathers’ Day, my boys & I drove to the airport. We were dropping off Zach, our oldest, so he could fly to Colorado Springs to attend a 2-week session of Summit. I was quite worried because a) He had a tight plane/terminal switch in Salt Lake City, b) It’s the first time he’s flown commercially in about 18 years, and c) HE’S FLYING ALONE.
And then, HORRORS! I didn’t really hug him good-bye. We were waiting while he was moseying along the fenced trail for security & I figured I’d be near him one more time. Not so. From far, far away I texted him when I realized what had happened. He smiled as he knew I was crying by then.
Well, we survived his flight. He had a marvelous time in Manitou Springs. (a little more on that later…)
On the 21st of June, Keith took us to a little Thai restaurant in Tempe. (I always order Pad See Ew, of course…) We were going to finish off my birthday celebration with a viewing of “Monsters University” but we opted for shopping instead.
June 28 the hubs & I headed out for a quick trip north to pick up Zach from his conference. I posted some quick temperature updates from various towns to tease our Phoenix folk who were suffering the hottest weekend of the year:The mountains of Southern Colorado (Garden of the Gods in this shot…) have an indescribable beauty:
We were delighted to tour the rooms where some of the most incredible minds of our day poured into the heart of our son!We also managed to have dinner with a dear couple from our church we haven’t seen in years! (We were blessed to spend the night at their house & to use their internet the next morning so Keith could work on a client issue… )
We hit the road & drove through some amazing thunderstorms throughout New Mexico. I captured this amazing rainbow while waiting for our dinner on a patio in Albuquerque.Well, that takes us through the end of June. July 1st we arrived home & I will write about the rest of the month tomorrow…
