ESCAPE

So...we escaped yesterday afternoon, just needed to get some fresh air! No better place to get fresh air than the Rockies! Just a short drive out of Littleton is the bumpy, washboardy drive over Guanella Pass to Georgetown...we took off and in no time we were in the snow. It was beautiful and brisk!



Here's Georgtown from above - love this little town!


Once we got to Georgtown, of course we had to do a little Chocolate, Caramel Popcorn, and Ice Cream Cone shopping at the best candy shop ever. Seem like a lot of sugar? Hey, it was what we needed at the time! Mmmmmmmm!

Ice Cream Cone. Gone.

Then we had a couple burgers at this cozy little restaurant. There were fun signs all over the restaurant..."Wait." It seemed like a "sign". I guess, a sign that we will wait a little longer...!

And then there were the mashed potatoes. We had a discussion about how perplexing it was that the waitress told us they don't serve french fries, and they don't serve baked potatoes, but they could serve me mashed potatoes...? (They were real, by the way, and TASTY! - comfort food!)

So....there was our afternoon yesterday, in photo review for you. More faithful waiting ahead, more dreaming of Koko....COME ON NOVEMBER 20! HURRY!

Blessings to all the waiting families - we know how you feel, we know this will happen, we know that there is amazing life to live! Remember, "HERE I AM" waiting to see the story unfold.

Peace,

Hey guys...glad you had a good break! My wife and I have been praying for you. If it's any comfort, our first court date is the first part of July, and we didn't get through until Oct 13...so we at least understand what this looooong wait is like.
