Labor Day at the Pool and Other Celebrations

Labor Day at the pool is always a hoot. Double cheeseburgers and hot dogs were the big hit this year. We also celebrated the 5th anniversary of Jonny's Chiari surgery and Nana and Papa celebrated their 48th at Ricky's Cantina (the lunchtime name for Ambli Global Cuisine).

Setting up Shop at UCCS

Nana, Papa, and Aunt Vickie got home from Wyoming just in time (well, actually, a little late) to help Fina move into her dorm at UCCS.

Blasting Home through Timnath, CO

It was an easy drive from Centennial, WY to home. We made one stop for coffee at the Public Market Coffeehouse in Timnath, CO (just south or Fort Collins). The building used to be a grain elevator and they've done a nice job of keeping some of the old character while putting in a new shop. But the really interesting thing turned out to be the name of the town: Timnath. We asked what that meant and were told it was an obscure Biblical reference. We were also pointed to two binders on a display shelf with all the info about the town and its name. The topic ended up being a Bonus on Jamie's Torah website, here. The day's photos start here.

Medicine Bow / Snowy Range and Centennial, WY

After buttoning up the Sisco rental house at Teton Village, we left the Grand Teton area bound for home. We finished today's leg in time to play around Medicine Bow / Snowy Mountains for a little while before settling into the Old Corral in Centennial, WY for the overnight. Dinner at the Bear Bottom Bar and Grill was surprisingly delightful. The day's photos start here.
