what a weekend

this wednesday, august 4th, is our 9th wedding anniversary. it just so happened that the lawn chair kings, the band who played at our wedding, were playing in silverton last night. so, the dear wonderful patty took the girls for their first ever overnight at her house and glenn and i had an evening away together.

when we dropped the girls off, i got to meet zoe, patty's zorse. a zorse is half zebra, half horse. she is strikingly beautiful, and so sweet!

patty's home is in a breath-taking valley.

the lawn chair kings are such a fun band! we had a great time.

we even danced a bit.

all summer, anytime junebug saw a raft on a river she would say "us do that". so today we picked up the girls from patty's (where they had a BLAST, thank you so very much, patty!) and went on a two-hour commercial raft trip on the animas river in durango.

it was a gorgeous day for it and we had a lot of fun.

then we went out to lunch

and there was a great irish band playing. the girls got their chance to dance too.

glenn goes back to work tomorrow, so this was a great way to end the summer.

Looks like a great day out, and your girls are so cute. They look so excited to be rafting.

Oh, I have never seen a zorse before, what a sweet thing.
