A Colorado Brunch

The way my cousin tells the story, my grandmother and grandfather were driving through Colorado with their kids (my dad and his 4 siblings) and their car kept breaking down, so while they were on the side of the road fixing the car my uncle Scott had plenty of time to marvel at the mountainous landscapes. He fell in love with Colorado and knew he’d move back there one day – and he’s been living in Colorado pretty much since he left home. Currently he and Ann live in Colorado Springs, with a back deck that affords the most beautiful view of the mountains! Our jaws dropped when we walked into their living room and saw the mountains outside of their floor-to-ceiling windows. Just BREATHTAKING.

La manera que mis primos cuentan la historia es: mi abuela y abuelo manejaban por Colorado con sus hijos (mi papa y sus 4 hermanos) y su auto no paraba de quedarse en pana, asi que mientras pasaban tiempo al lado del camino arreglando el auto mi tio Scott tuvo suficiente tiempo para maravillarse con los paisajes montanosos. Se enamoro de Colorado y sabia que algun dia volveria a vivir ahi – y ahora ha vivido en Colorado practicamente desde que se fue de la casa. Actualmente el y Ann viven en Colorado Springs, con una terraza que tiene la vista mas hermosa hacia las montanas! Nuestras bocas quedaron abiertas cuando llegamos a su casa y vimos las montanas a travez de sus ventanas que iban desde el techo hasta el suelo. MARAVILLOSO!

Scott and Ann hosted a delicious brunch at their house before Heather’s wedding using my grandmother’s china – so nice to see that china after so long! The brunch was excellent and we got to see an amazing slideshow afterwards of Scott and Ann’s most recent trip to Alaska on their Harley Davidson motorcycle and trike. I got a couple of pictures of the bikes but I couldn’t back up from where I was standing so they are a little close up. My uncle has been driving Harleys for as long as I can remember. He and Ann go on long bike trips every year and this year they bought a trike for Ann that is pretty incredible…and incredibly loud! It’s definitely what I would prefer to ride on…I think I’d get too nervous riding a motorcycle but maybe if it had 3 wheels I’d feel better about it.

Scott y Ann nos invitaron a un delicioso Desayuno/Almuerzo en su casa antes del matrimonio de Heather y usaron la pocelana de mi abuela – muy lindo poder ver esa porcelana despues de tanto tiempo. La comida estuvo deliciosa y pudimos ver unas fotos de la aventura de Scott y Ann en Alaska, manejando su motocicletas. Saque un par de fotos de las motos pero nohabia espacio para sacar una foto de toda la moto asi que tuve que sacar lo que pude. Mi tio ha manejado Harley Davidsons desde siempre (o eso creo yo, todas mis memorias de el son con su moto). El y Ann hacen viajes largos en moto todos los anos y este ano compraron un triciclo para Ann que es increbile…..e increiblemente ruidoso! Es sin duda lo que yo preferiria manejar en la carretera…creo que me pondria muy nerviosa manejando una moto pero tal vez si tiene 3 ruedas me sentiria mejor.

It was great to see my uncle’s house – I love visiting my family (see a photography post from a visit to my aunt Jane and uncle Bruce’s house here). It was a perfect afternoon trip to kick off the wedding festivities – which we’ll post about tomorrow!

Fue genial ver la casa de mi tio – me encanta visitar a mis familiares (vean las fotos de mi visita a mi tia Jane y tio Bruce aqui). Fue el viaje corto perfecto para empezar las actividades del matrimonio……manana viene el post sobre la boda!

  1. Thanks for taking and posting these pictures, Leslie. And I really appreciate the time you took to post a narrative, as well. We hope that you and Javi and other family members will return to visit when we all have more time to just “hang out”.
