The grand Feltys came to visit us the last weekend in August. Phil and Betty came over to celebrate Fran’s birthday. Spencer was very excited about the cake we got from Das Meyer, and then proceeded to eat about one tiny bite. He seems very excited about the idea of cake lately, but doesn’t actually like eating it that much.
Saturday morning Clare flew out to Ohio for a bridal shower. The rest of us went to the Colorado Railroad Museum. We didn’t know it ahead of time, but they were laying new track that day. That was pretty exciting. We watched them work on the track for at least 30 minutes. They had some big dump trucks and front-loaders, which Spencer enjoyed very much. We also got to ride the steam engine twice!
We were fortunate that both kids took long naps Saturday and Sunday afternoon at the same time! This allowed me time to can some more salsa Saturday afternoon while the kids and the grandparents were napping. We got a bumper crop of tomatoes this year!
