Summer 2010 Recap

Well, this summer was a bit. . . .no much different than most summers for us. This was our first summer without Mom. We knew it was going to be hard on us but we also knew that it would be especially hard for my Dad. We have spent as much time with him as we have been able to. As I began to get pictures I realized that we did more this summer than I had originally thought. Here goes. . . . . . .Mr. Giggles and I headed here for his cousins wedding. Beautiful wedding but man it was hot!

The next week we headed here.

While here we met up with my Dad and my little sis. We got to play in this.

After Dad and little sis headed home, Mr. Giggles and I drove up Pikes Peak. If you haven't ever driven up there, it is absolutely breath taking. We had a wonderful day except for the lack of oxygen!!

We also went to Garden of the Gods and Cave of the Winds.

Once we got back home, we spent time with the nephew and the niece. I went to see the musical Wicked with my sisters and took a trip to my middle sister's house. The rest of the summer was spent doing this. . .

and this. . . . . .

and some more of this. . . .

and watched the ponds do this. . . . .

and watched these hoping for some rain (we are still waiting for this). We are over 5 inches behind on rainfall this year and August was one of the hottest months on record.

Now we are all getting back into the swing of things. Mr. Giggles, Dad and little sis are back at
school as are the nephew and niece. Middle sis and I are back to subbing and life continues to march on.

Mr. Giggles and I hope to be able to do some more of this in the fall.

I hope that you have enjoyed my summer recap. If you want to read more summer recaps, head on over to Jennifer's blog for Friday with Friends.
