Four Wheeling & Fireworks

This is the last post on the trip (I promise!). I took over 250 pictures so condensing it down to just five blog posts was pretty difficult. Sean and I took a trip on my parent's 4 wheelers on the last day before heading home. There are many back roads to explore around my parent's cottage and that's just what we did. It was great fun and I got some fabulous pictures of the scenery.

The spectacular scenery inspired me to try my hand at watercolor painting. My parents had a small watercolor kit that they were generous enough to let me use while I was up there. So I sat out on their deck and did a few tiny little paintings. I found it to be very relaxing and I'm thinking I might pick up a brush now that I'm home. I used to watercolor in high school and college but haven't in quite some time. It was nice.

We ended up traveling home on the 4th of July so we made arrangements to stop in Pueblo and enjoy the fireworks show. The hotel was downtown by the river and we ended up having front row seats in our fifth floor room. It was a lovely end to a memorable trip.

Good gosh those are tiny paintings. You are so good at working small. That's crazy. They are spectacular! I'm jealous. (I"m posting this as anonymous because it's easier than signing in. :-) (Jessica)

Love your watercolors! I think I have a bunch of paint that I would gladly send you...and brushes and paper. Just let me know if you want it.

I love Colorado. I have wonderful memories of the summers tooling around in the mountains.
