Off we go, only 8-9 more hours to go! DSCN7642-stamped

Yay! Another state! Hey there, Wyoming! 

DSCN7639-stamped

It was pretty green in Wyoming, it looked pretty similar to South Dakota. 

DSCN7652-stamped

Silas and I both listened to hours and hours of music! 🙂

DSCN7649-stamped

Still in Wyoming.

DSCN7641-stamped

Yass! Lots of music, and great songs! ❤

I took one photo with my tablet, hence bad quality. I got an iced coffee at Chick-fil-A, right before 10, when they close. 😀


We got back to Colorado around 9:30, I think and got home around midnight.

Thank you so much for reading all 8 of these posts, if you are still reading. Now you will be seeing more “normal” posts. 😛

Waterfalls♥

♥Waterfalls♥

After we checked out of our hotel we started to make our way home, but we took a little detour to see some waterfalls, so let’s get going!

First off was this waterfall, we got a nice family photo here! 🙂

On our way to the next waterfall, we drove by at least 40 Corvettes, it was neat!!

To see the next waterfall we had to take a short hike.

Happy 1st “Birthday”

Happy 1st _Birthday_

Soo…you are probaly wondering whose birthday it is…*says to myself* Oh man, I feel really weird writing this post now, but here we go! 😛

 

*gets into a serious mood*  So today is the first birthday for my…

g1-edited

Yes…my lovely green paracord bracelet. 😛

Why am I “celebrating” its birthday you wonder. Well, because I have worn it for a whole year. Yes, I may be crazy, but I have never taken it off since August 11th, 2017- when I got it at Eagle Lake camp.

Every night it drives me crazy because it kinda digs into my wrist, but I have never taken it off to sleep, or anything! 😛

Part of the reason I have worn it for a year was for a fun challenge, and because it is a reminder of a Bible verse, Ecclesiastes 4:12.

Ecclesiastes 4_12

The bracelet is made of one strong strand but made in such a way that it looks like three different strands- that make it a stronger bracelet. A great reminder that there is no such thing as a lone ranger Christian. 


 

Well, if you are still reading, then thanks! 🙂 Have you ever worn a bracelet for a long time straight, without ever taking it off? Or done some other crazy challenge? 😀

At 9pm they did a neat little video about all the presidents, and then they had everyone who has been os still is part of the United States Armed Forces. It was so amazing to see that just out of the people that were there that night, how many serve our country!! ❤

DSCN7538-stamped

They had 7 of them helped take down and fold the US flag, it was a really neat little ceremony.
