Last Weekend

Last weekend we had to head to Denver for our Gap Year kick off weekend.  So, we loaded up the family and headed East.  After we got work out of the way, we decided to stay and play in Colorado Springs for the rest of the weekend.  We had big plans of visiting the US Naval Academy and the Garden of the Gods and a great Hot Air Balloon Show. . .well, thanks to the weather (and a party pooper or two), most of our plans remained just plans, but we had a super weekend anyway!

The Naval Academy was a hit!  It was great for two main reasons.  First of all, my Uncle JoJo was the chief engineer on the Chapel project and I've always wanted to see it.  Secondly, Hays thinks he may want to go to college there and it was good for him to see it so that his dream can be the GPA stickler and not me!!!  I cannot believe that I have taken my son on a virtual college visit, but the time is getting close!  USAFA was wonderful!!!  (We watched a short film about Freshman at USAFA and I cried like 14 times. . .oh my!)
We met the Ham Family at the GOTGs but most of the day was rained out.  The weather made for some restless and grouchy kids, but I loved being with the Hams!  We spent the night with them and just enjoyed sitting around talking while the kids played!  We love the Hams!!!
