This morning at breakfast, Charlie told us, "There's nothing in heaven except God and rocks."
Charlie often sings the refrain from the Lego Movie, "Everything is Awesome!" Recently I heard Charlie sing this and then quietly say to himself, "Well, not EVERYTHING is awesome . . ." Curious, I asked him about this and he said, "Yeah, if everything was awesome then . . . getting soap in your eye would be awesome." So true.

In September, Jim and I were fortunate to go to Colorado for my good friend Kathryn's wedding. We left Thursday night and after a looooong wait for a rental car from Avis at the Denver airport, we made it to the cabin in Florissant, CO by 2:00 a.m.! I do not recommend Avis!
After breakfast with the bride, groom, and their families on Friday morning, Jim and I drove to Colorado Springs and rented some mountain bikes. It was a lot of fun to ride and we saw some amazing views! I was glad no one else was with us; I had to stop and walk my bike at several spots that I deemed too dangerous. I'm sure my younger self would have disagreed.
Kathryn and Keith rented a cabin at the wedding site and let several of us stay there. It was very spacious and so fun for all of us friends from high school to hang out together. One odd thing about the cabin was that everything was for sale. Jim and I tried on these outfits that were hanging in our closet, but decided not to purchase them.
The high school friends:
The following weekend, I went to Kansas City for the wedding of one of my former cross country runners. I was honored to be invited to the rehearsal dinner on Friday night, too, where I met up with a couple other former runners.
