Our Trip to Colorado

Faith, Mom, and my aunts Kathy and Amy, and my cousin Jamie and my granny went to go visit my aunt Tenaly in Otis, Colorado. It was a total surprise for Tenaly's birthday. We walked into the school where she teaches and she was so happy/mad at us. Now forgive these pictures because they were with a disposable. I am still working on a newer-nicer camera. Anyway, this is an adventure you all need to hear about. This was Faith on the airplane. She didn't cry at all, and I'm carseat-in airplanes handicapped, so they we were always thirty minutes delayed to our arrival time because of my inexperience with these crazy carseats. This is our car-rental place, we waited in line forEVER! I believe this is right after I finished telling some randoms that Faith was my baby, and my hometeacher was the father..and I think my mom was still in the process of telling these randoms that I really wasn't the single mother. Ha! Oh mom, just let the story go, they would have enjoyed talking about me once we were gone. We sat at the rental place for atleast an hour and Amy watched the luggage, or rather..slept on it all. And you better believe that is my shadow takin that picture :) Now this was fun, this was at the school where we surprised Tenaly, so the students there did something or other and WON this loft for their library, I thought it was also pretty awesome that my grandma donated the leaves for the trees..which was a workin progress. This was at the Senior Citizen Center after church where the branch of Otis is located, or Twig as they liked to call it. There were a total of 7 people in the Relief Society, and my aunt and the other lady were the only ones who weren't visitors! I suppose my dress was see-through and everybody was talking about it, but I packed light and my slip was on the leave home list! These were the ducks we fed popcorn to. Where did we get the popcorn you ask? We got it from the popcorn machine in the Senior Center. Kept me full all through church, then we fed the ducks with it. I thought it was brilliant.
I couldn't express enough how happy I was to be in Otis Colorado.
This is Chloe and Becca Sue and I feeding the ducks after church, or should I say after our bingo/popcorn activities at the Senior Center :)
Now look at this. Im so glad we documented this at one in the morning. This is in Denver at a motel 2 probably. We drove from Otis on Sunday night and got there really late. My grandma was being thrifty and decided to get one motel room for 7 people. I packed light so I left my blanket at home. Jamie and I were voted to sleep on this lovely thing they called a rollaway bed. It barely fit, and we didnt have a blanket except for grandma's couch throw. We had to discuss turning over during the night, in order to gain optimum comfort. All I remember is a bar in my ribs and Jamie sniffing all night. In the morning there was kleenex's spread all over. Apparently during the night she decided to just throw them. HA! We actually ended up building a fort around this with blankets. Who needs two motel rooms? Oh we finally went to bed at 2Am but had to get up at 4 Am to go to the airport. When we awoke Granny couldnt find her prized golden pjs, which were apparently PURE silk and only 15 dollars, a gift from her dear friend. Anyway after much searching by delusional people at 4 am, Kathy spotted them shining out of her pants, which she had pulled over her gold gem pjs. Oh we got a laugh outta that. So this was most of the trip to Otis. I think I could write a book about all the profane, hilarious, and memorable things that were done, said and accomplished on this trip.

Haha, that's awesome that you did seven to a room at the motel 2. I'm the youngest of eight, which is pocket change compared to your family, but I've had my fair share of rollaways. I actually slept on a hide-a-bed last night in the top floor of an apartment building. There was no air conditioning, so I couldn't sleep for forever, but I think the best part was that my back had more bars than my cell phone that night.
