The Colorado State swim meet was this weekend in Grand Junction, and Kate was chosen to participate in a medley relay. That's a 5 hour drive to swim one time across the pool! So early Friday afternoon the kids and I drove across the state to Grand Junction (Matt, unfortunately, had to work this weekend).
Saturday we were up and out early for 7am warm-up. Lucky for us, Kate was just in the first event and swam the fly leg of the 200m medley relay. She did great & dropped over 4 seconds off her 50m fly time.
On our way back east, we stopped in Palisade. I bought a painting that I found in the local co-op gallery, we had an amazing mid-afternoon meal at Palisade Cafe 11.0 (um, yum!), and bought some just-coming-into-season peaches.

Spent Saturday night at our place in the mountains. Made peach crisp topped with ice cream and called it dinner. Our mountain neighbors were having whipped cream fun, and Jack happily joined in the fun!
