Stranger than Fiction!
Well buddy you must rate pretty high on your Uncle Ronnie's list of VIPs! In a completely UN- Uncle Ronnie move, he and Prada drove out for a surprise visit to see us in Colorado!!! It was such an unexpected- although desperately appreciated treat! We loved having them here and didnt want them to leave! Team 1901 Back together again!! Hooray! It was the perfect end to a hectic week.
The week started on a shaky note - The Fourmile Canyon fire in Boulder had us worried about Aunt Sue. We took an impromptu trip to see her and see if we can help. Her house was fine but the fire was dangerously close - and she had to be evacuated. Apparently her horses can be more stubborn than you monster mash. They wouldnt get in their trailer to leave the ranch. So poor Aunt Sue had to spend 3 long days trying to get them safety. Fortunately everyone ended up safe and sound - unfortunately for you Daddy says you are NEVER getting a horse! :(
Uncle Ronnie and PradaBear arrived Thursday nite and we were so happy to see them! The dogs seemed pretty happy to have their "pack"again too. We had a great late Birthday dinner for Uncle Ronnie followed by everyone crashing and going right to bed! I guess that is what happens when you hang out with 37 year olds! Friday we had a great day roaming around the city and checking out all the neighborhoods. In only-uncle-Ronnie-fashion he decided he was going to buy a house here - effective immediately - so we also checked out the local real estate market. Let's just say the recession hasnt done much to the good folks of Denver. The houses - behemoth as they were - were ridiculously priced - but nonetheless fun to look at. That night we went for Uncle Ronnie's ceremonious Cheesecake Factory Birthday Dinner - complete with singing waitresses! Then off to the Tattered Cover for some late night book browsing. Kiddo, I hope you grow up to love to read as much as you love to tear those books off the shelf! You are like a little tornado in there!
I love you my Little sleepless boot scooter!
