my dads side of the family had a reunion in durango colorado. i never believed that a place so beautiful existed. as we were driving in the mountains to our destination i was literally in awe at the beauty. can it get any greener? can the mountains get higher? can the wildflowers be any more plentiful and bright? me and mark started dreaming of retiring there, someday. oh, it was gorgeous!
we stayed at the Cascade Lodge, a cabin built in the 1920s. it was situated just perfectly on its own little rolling hill with wildflowers aplenty for my wee ones to pick. they must have picked a gazillion. the lodge, we found out, had mice, little babies. of course all the little girls thought they were the cutest things ever. that's what you get for watching Cinderella way too many times.
