Saturday we hit the road early and spent the day in Estes and Rocky Mountain National Park. Four years ago when I heard the words "national" and "park" together it made me yawn, but my first time in this park (last staff conference) totally changed my mind. The scenery reminds me of what an incredibly designed world we live in. I need a good dose of nature every now and then... it does the spirit good!
See what I mean?

On Sunday afternoon we headed east to Greeley, Colorado to experience the renowned "Greeley Stampede." We soon realized that we had been the victims of false advertisement... we basically traveled 40 minutes to go to a carnival where we saw totally normal things like...
kids riding bucking sheep
and men wrestling alligators all the way from the (and I quote) "exotic state of Florida"!
He was not a fan of cow kisses. He looked at us like "Excuse me? Did you see what this creature just did to my hand?"
It was a great weekend that was topped off with our favorite eatery here, Beaujo's Pizza.
Now we (mostly Andrew) are back in class and excited to learn more about what it means for us to lead the ministry at Southern Miss! We can't believe how soon the school year will be starting!
