as promised...

Here they are... the embroidery projects I have done. This is a kitchen towel...
And this is a lingerie bag I made for my friend who is getting married this weekend. It's actually a small pillowcase that zips. I thought it would make a great little bag to stash her lingerie when she travels :)
So our trip to Steamboat was fantastic. Here are the highlights...

As we were driving through Pueblo, we decided to stop and have lunch. We wanted to drive through somewhere and then find a park to have a picnic. What we found was this beautiful area of downtown Pueblo. We had our lunch in a gazebo and then rented a paddleboat for a little ride on a small lake nearby. We also found some cool places to take pictures of the kiddos...
And a pit stop in Golden... for a little caffeine. Isaiah the cowboy had to take a moment to sit on a horse in front of the western store. This horse is life-sized. And Isaiah was loving it!We spent lots of time at a hot springs in Steamboat. We got to swim in these big, warm, beautiful swimming pools. We also had our lunch there. Sarah looked so cute in her little pink hoodie.
We swam so much we turned into prunes.
With all the snow melting, the river was high and the waters moved really fast.
Isaiah and his cousin Wyatt. This was in Craig, where my brother and his fam lives. Again, high fast waters. The sunset was beautiful.
And a shot of the mountains as we began our long drive home. Do you see how lots of pine trees are dead? That's because of the pine beetles. They are taking over. My brother said that in like 5 years all the pine trees will be gone:(
There you have it... our family summer vacation of 2008. I can't believe it's already over! We left beautiful 70 degree weather and came home to 100 degrees with 50 mile an hour winds. Yick.

You got some great shots on your vacation! And I love the embroidery. It turned out really great. The lingerie bag is a really good idea. I'll have to remember that.
