Day 6 - Saturday - June 26, 2010
0545 Wake up. Check the time. Go back to sleep.
0615 Ryan knocks the clock off the bedside table with a huge crash. I get up to look at my cell phone to see what time it is. Ryan asks for the remote control and turns on the TV to watch. All of this wakes Bella up.
0620 Go down to the car to get the camera cords I forgot last night. So refreshing out here this morning!
Back in the room, the girls are awake watching TV and Ryan has gone back to sleep. I take a shower and get dressed.
0715 Time for the kids to get dressed.
0738 Head downstairs for breakfast. It is exactly the insanity I would expect to find on a summer Saturday morning in a completely booked hotel.
0745 Back upstairs in our room to eat breakfast. I sync the podcasts that I missed last time and add a new one that I have just downloaded.
0809 Leave the room, checking out.
0815 Loaded in the car and ready to go. This went much more smoothly than our last hotel departure.
0821 Stop to see the World's Largest Easel before we leave town.
0854 Car Talk is just ending. It was rather funny this morning.
0955 Bypassing the Wonder Tower. Perhaps we will stop on a future trip.
0956 Finishing the Legos podcast from Stuff You Should Know (and How Things Work). Thanks to Shani for the recommendation!
1000 Ryan is whispering "sweet nothings" to his mp3 player, trying to get it to keep working.
1005 Gas in Limon, CO. $2.83/gallon. It is very busy here in Limon today. I wash the bugs off my windshield (AGAIN!) and then hit the McD's drive-thru next door for an iced coffee.
1033 See a herd of antelope lying in the grass right next to a herd of cows lying in the grass in the same field.
1133 See the Space Shuttle mailbox - we must be going the right way!
1135 Arrive at Dad and Roseanne's place.
What follows is a nice relaxing afternoon and evening... The kids play outside, play Wii, eat lunch. I force Dad to look at my scrapbooks. We had grilled burgers and hot dogs for dinner then yummy chocolate birthday cake for dessert!
