One of the reasons we wanted to drive from Georgia to Colorado was so that we could stop at Grandpa Russ’ house along the way. He lives in Missouri, so it was a great halfway point for us. We arrived around noon on Monday and left for Colorado on Wednesday morning. It didn’t give us a lot of time there, unfortunately, but we made the most of it! The boys made sure to wear all of their “army” gear the whole time we were there. They loved being near his two dogs, Calvin and Duke, and spent a lot of time checking on them. They also loved the fires Grandpa Russ built, both inside and outside. The boys and I did some homeschooling and Mike worked, but we had a great time with Grandpa Russ and are so thankful we were able to stop there! I know the boys will be asking to visit again!
Thanks for hosting us so graciously, Grandpa Russ. We had a great time!
