46 Degrees F/ 8 Degrees C

Hard to believe, but I am wearing a sweatshirt, long pants, and a jacket today. BRRRRRRR. It is cold! How can it be that 2 days ago my kids were running around on the top of the rocks where Erwin and I married with just a tank top, and today it's freezing and we need jackets. Amazing, the weather pattern. But, I am not about to complain, because this vacation has been 100% good. I am happy, my family is happy, my friends are happy, and life is good. So, no way I'm gonna let a little ole bit of cold weather damper my spirits.

Our trip on the houseboat at Lake Powell? Oh my gosh, that is a story times 3 in itself. Let's just mention a boat crashing, SOS calls, and no gas. And then, to top it all off, it was a complete and total blast. Even Erwin, who was most hesitant about our boating adventures, wouldn't mind a repeat expedition. Yes, it was terrific. Truly an unforgettable vacation. No, we won't be forgetting any of it. And yes, it seems that my brother and his family and ours is reunited, which may be the best experience I have had on this trip to the US. In any case, it was terrific.

And then, Erwin and I shared our 5th Anniversary trip to Vegas, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Zion Park. And we had a great time just the two of us. Eating out at Subway one night, our actual anniversary dinner, we had the added bonus of a mouse who came right to us. I finished the evening standing on the table with a squeal. But I can't even begin to descibe how much a trip like this rekindled our relationship and made me fall in love with my husband all over again. The views were beautiful and it was a wonderful way to spend some alone time together. In Vegas, we came out $20 behind, but that was good enough for us. Too bad Erwin was winning and I lost...but he was thrilled with winning his Hooters owl.

As for the rest, I'll leave it for another day. We have only a few days of vacation left and I plan to enjoy it to the fullest. Spending time with my parents has been a treat, and I love watching my boys and them play and laugh together. Soon we'll be home once again and back to the routine of life. I'll be in touch then. But for now, Happy Autumn from Wyoming. BRRRRR!
