First Day Photos

September 1st turned out to be a fun vacation-like day here. Tim had the day off of work, and Lauren argued that she should have the day off of school. We reached a compromise that meant she did some schoolwork before we left home that morning and more work while we were traveling that afternoon.

Our first stop of the day was the radio station. Children's Hospital is having a radiothon in October, and we recorded some of Lauren's story to be shared that day.

Tim, Lauren, and I then headed out of town for a quick weekend trip. We stayed at FE Warren AFB in Cheyenne, Wyoming. It's such a beautiful historic base -- wish I had gotten more pictures of some of the buildings there. We saw very few modern buildings, most date back to the early 1900s when it was an Army Post.

Reading time while I fixed dinner:

Berry got put in a very-convenient jail in our TLF.

Meanwhile, Brennan sent me this picture from his afternoon's adventure climbing with a friend.

After dinner, we set off in search of some dessert and then wandered around the base. (We had hoped for non-dairy ice cream at the Commissary but settled for lime popsicles which we took out to the lake to enjoy.)

One of the coolest things about F. E. Warren is the wildlife roaming around the base. This is just one of many groups of pronghorn we saw. We also saw an enormous jack rabbit that bounded away before I could get a picture.

We squeezed in a few games before bedtime and then I tried to get ahead a bit in the physics class I might need to help Brennan with.

It turned out to be quite a fun day, even if Lauren complained about school work. We spent the next day touring a few National Park sites and then headed home. Short trip, but good to get away for a bit.

  1. It looks like a really fun day! I love base accommodations! I had forgotten all about pronghorns. I have been longing for the open skies of the west lately. You are a wonderful family!
