Durango to Pagosa
After we unloaded and ate lunch, we took the jeep for a ride to the general store for a treat.
We brought bikes on this trip and Dan taught the boys how to change the tires and tubes on a big bike and pump up the tires on the other two. They were not thrilled to be put to work, but I felt a sense of parenting accomplishment that they learned how to do something new. (Parenting accomplishment #2 was when I asked them to shuck the corn and they all knew how to do it--I wasn't really sure that they would. Phew, I've taught them a thing or two.)
They made a bike jump and rode ATV's and when it rained we played UNO. After 6:00 the boys chopped wood and made a fire. Gram and Papa arrived and we made fajitas for dinner. Soon after, Kristin, Clark, Adam and Curtis arrived.
