Sweet Action Ice Cream

Sweet Action Ice Cream

Oh look, more photos from when we were on vacation in Colorado! I guess once we got home, no one ever did a photo dump from the camera. Anyhow, we were on a mission to visit all of the artisan ice cream places that we could find. This was Sweet Action Ice Cream, located in […]

Mountain climbing: Rosalie Peak

While we were in Colorado we attempted to climb a mountain by taking Tanglewood Trail towards Rosalie Peak. We lost the trail about 2.5 miles up and while we had many GPS gadgets, we didn’t have a map. So we turned around at 10,841′ because I was not about to have a Blair Witch Project […]

Chihuly Exhibit at Denver Botanic Garden

Vader Vacation has a dramatic ending

  It’s Tuesday and we returned from our vacation on Sunday night. I don’t even know where to begin, honestly, I don’t.

The time I passed out on a plane

I was flying home from California with a layover in Las Vegas. It was supposed to be a very short layover, like […]

Summerland

It’s gorgeous in California! This photo was a lucky shot on the way home from the moving car.

Let’s have some whine

I’m back from vacation and it’s been a week that seemed to go non-stop. My daughter goes back to school tomorrow, my nephews already left for college and I kinda got attached to them this summer, my friends are all busy doing other things, I fired my cleaners months ago (it needed to be done, […]
