MANITOU SPRINGS - Family and Friends

by Brenda Nelson July. 02, 2013 4416 views

On Sunday, all of Larry's brothers and their wives met at Garden of the Gods, then they went to check into their lodging, while we met up with our Colorado PB friends - Marsha (lookagain) and Cliff, Sher (SheriJ) and Ken, plus Darlene (DarFoster). We had lunch together, talked, laughed, and took lots of photos of each other! It was so fun.

Later, we met Larry's family at our little “Town & Country” cabin and cooked hamburgers and talked until 11:00! What a fun family and friend day!

Larry's brothers Robert and wife Ann (seated) and Tommy and wife Sandi met us in Manitou

Driving through Garden of the Gods to meet our PB friends

“F-Stop Friends”: Sher, Marsha, Brenda and Darlene

Our “boys”: Larry, Ken and Cliff

All the PBers: Sher, Darlene, Brenda, Marsha and Larry

Cookin' out and sittin' out!

This was a plastic postcard taped to our refrigerator by the owners of the cabins AND the dogs

If you won't feed me, I'll throw a fit!

The owners brought some photos for us to see of the original cabins. Her grandparents honeymooned here and bought the cottages 67 years ago and ran them for 20 years, their son and his wife operated the cabins for the next 32 years, then Scott and Cheryl have run the place for the last 15 years. A lot of family history here!

The little cabin on the right is the same one that we're in this week - it's all refurbished and just darling! We kept saying “Oh, this is so precious!”

Larry and I went out early this morning to look for the deer and have a cup of coffee in front of our little cabin. As of this posting, we are all sitting on the same front porch watching a huge rainstorm move over the mountains!

Hi to all the familiar faces in #5! Very sorry we missed this! It was about 2:30 when we passed through Colorado Springs.
