September is my favorite month here in Colorado. The heat of the summer magically lifts on the very first day, and the sky is blue and colors so clear. The air is cool and we always anticipate our town's annual celebration. There have been very few times when the weather hasn't cooperated.
The month began with my nephew's wedding. RJ and Jenni were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony, followed by a rousing reception where we all danced well into the night! I can't bring myself to post the pictures, but let's just say that my nephew had a lesson he'll never forget in how to disco, from his mom and three aunts. Saturday Night Fever lives on.
The following weekend my sister-in-law Jenny and I took a road trip to see my niece in Albuquerque. It was a beautiful weekend, driving through the southern part of our state along the Sangre de Cristo range and into New Mexico. Elsa is on staff for the UNM volleyball program, so we watched some great volleyball games, went for a hike one day and ended up at an amazing bloody Mary bar! Love this girl.
Dan and I are finishing up a few garden projects. He built a fence and an archway that leads to the raised bed gardens. My nephew Tommy came over one day to help.
The morning glories are just beginning to bloom. Next year, I picture them all along our new fence.
Last Saturday, we went to our town's annual festival. Dan likes the car show and I help our local economy along by shopping the craft booths. Here is a snapshot from the parade with our godchild Stephanie and her friend, walking with their school.
Miranda texts me the sweetest pictures of the kids. Love this one of Siefer with Luke. It makes the distance seem not so far.
Yesterday, I got to spend the whole day with this sweetie! Bentley is six months old already! We went for a long, long stroll. And then came home and took a long, long nap! Both of us;)
For 27 years, he has been stealing my heart!
Love you, Joey! Happy Birthday!
