I Am In Love With This State.....Part 1

Colorado is beautiful! I am head over heals in love with this state! If you are looking for a vacations destination, look no further! Seriously, I never want to go back to Illinois! I have considered staying, I am not kidding! I would be willing not to catch my return flight! OK, the knight would not be happy if I did that so I will go back!

I pray that the return flight is better than the flight here!! We were making our final approach to Denver when the pilot informed us that there was a thunderstorm over Denver and would would have to circle for 10-20 minutes until it passed! OK.....great! 45 minutes later he informed us that the storm was not clearing that quickly and that we were running low on fuel so we might have to divert to Colorado Springs to refuel! OK......GREAT! Then a few minutes later he informs us that we are cleared for landing! What he did not tell us was that the storm was not completely out of the area and that the landing would be a bit scary! There was lightening all around and tons of turbulance but 1 hour and 10 minutes after our scheduled landing time, we were safely on the ground!

So I have not gotten any great shots yet but I will when we head to the foothills of the Rockies where the wedding venue is! I promise that it will not disappoint so for now I leave you with a few shots that I got yesterday!!
Here are the diva and the moody teen riding on the moving sidewalk at Denver International airport. Needless, to say this kept them busy for a while! The diva thought she was on an amusement park ride. Ha!

This, of course, is the drink of choice in the airport (or anywhere for that matter)!! Yum!

Yup, the diva is wearing a child harness!! It worked out well because the moody teen or I could keep a hold of her while giving her the freedom to explore safely! She loved it and pretended that she was a cute little puppy!!

The diva watching planes land and blast off! LOL! Blast off, that is what she calls takeoff! By the way, she fell asleep on the tarmac while waiting for our plane to blast off so she missed it!

This is the diva with "Buddy", her new friend! She calls all boys buddy! They were fast friends because he had on crocks that looked like Lightning McQueen from the movie cars! He was 4 and she hugged him before we boarded the plane.

This is the top of the gazebo where the wedding will take place tomorrow! I cannot wait to share all the photos from this trip with you! It is truly a stunning location for a wedding!

This is a tree and statue behind the gold fish pond! Notice all the lights! The whole garden is light up with thousands of lights and it totally gorgeous with the mountains in the background!

OK, enough for now! I am off to the rehearsal and dinner and also to do some pre photos! Check back tomorrow for part 2.

I hope your return flight is much smoother, but I'm glad everything worked out okay. I love those pictures and can't wait to see more.

I must say I am surprised when I see folks using the harness. I remember the first time I saw one when my oldest was young and I couldn't believe it. Of course, I've heard the pros and cons. Now, as I've matured, I feel like whatever works for someone else is great!

I love that phrase-Live Laugh Love.

And I totally agree with the child harness in an airport.
