Apple tree

Greta has been learning a lot of fun songs and rhymes at preschool.  She comes home and teaches them to Rilla.  Here is cutie Rilla saying "Way up high in the apple tree.  Two little apples smiled at me.  I shook the tree as hard as I could.  Down came the apples.  Mmm they were good!" I love it!

 Fun day at the Reds game in Cincinnati today!  Even better, the Reds came from six runs down to win 7-6!

Colorado Trip

We had a great summer trip to Colorado -- spending a lot of time hiking and climbing rocks in the Rocky Mountains.  Lots of fun activities and museums in Denver.  And a nice trip down to my old home, USAFA and Colorado Springs.  First, here are scenes from our time in the Rocky Mountains.

The Big Blue Bear

The Big Blue Bear at the Denver convention center was a big hit!

United States Air Force Academy

Back to my birthplace!

Garden of the Gods

We sure loved climbing around on the cool rock formations at the Garden of the Gods.

Sweet Rilla turns TWO!

We had fun exploring downtown on Rilla's birthday...and celebrating with labor-intensive Cinco de Mayo pinata cookies the night before.  Aunt Emily was visiting from London and helped with the festivities!
