On Saturday we drove south a few hours to Cherry Creek State Park which is just east of Denver. The campground sits next to a huge reservoir.
Tomorrow I’ll be flying from Denver to Chicago for work leaving Brian and Curtis to fend for themselves. We can all picture them here while I’m away.
Dinner Last Night:
The night before last we had terrible winds where we were camping so we didn’t get much sleep. Exhausted from the drive and our lack of sleep, I didn’t feel like cooking last night so we ate out.
