Cheyene Mountain State Park

Cheyene Mountain State Park,  is a wonderful place to hike.

some of the trails wind through the forest,

providing shade, on a sunny day.

We heard a number of birds, 

but I wasn't able to get close enough to get any good shots.

The Royal Gorge ~ view from the bottom and the kiddie train.

In Light of the recent fires, and the damage done to the Royal Gorge Park, I thought it might be best to go ahead post my last set of Royal Gorge Pictures.  I feel so sad for all the families who lost their homes in the fires.  I hope they are able to put out all the fires soon, and prevent further losses.

More beautiful scenery.

More views of the bridge.

Bandimere Speedway

Every summer Steve gets the pleasure of working at and attending one or two of the Napa Sponsored car races. 
This one was held at the Bandimere Speedway.
Car Races are an exciting event to attend.  The Food ...
The excitement . . .
The People . . .

Fun is in the air.

It's an evening my girls look forward to each year. 

Each one savoring the opportunity, when their turn comes around, to spend the entire evening at the races with their dad.   
Of course Veto Power comes in handy, and from time to time I take a turn a the races. 

Then I get to experience the lights, the noise, and all of the excitement.

Oh what a RUSH,  to hear the voice of the announcer . . .


To feel the rumble, and shake as the sound overtakes you. 

Tiss a glorious event. 
Nothing quite like it.

One met with such anticipation,

one not soon forgotten.

We love the car races!!!

Happy Father's day!

Delicious Denver Restarurants~Sunrise Sunset Cafe

Some times you're just in the mood for breakfast even if it's lunch time. 

Steve is one of those people who can eat breakfast food anytime of day.  So it comes as no surprise, that this is one of his favorite restaurants.

It's such a bright an cheerful little café.
The rooster décor is so much fun.

My Lindsey love's to pose for the camera.

Shiloh on the other hand, is a little more difficult. 


A skillet meal,

and salsa falls composed the menu for our delicious lunch.

This was our lovely waitress.  We enjoyed her service immensely.
