Happy Thursday to you all! Well, I told you my daughter and her family were camping and they have had a great time. They woke up yesterday to Elk in their campsite and enjoyed watching them. Last night I got these texts~deer in the campsite. How fun for the grands!

They took a drive into a state park area, where we camped 6 years ago and what did they see but this young Moose eating in the meadow. We've seen Moose at Grand Lake once, when we camped there as well. I never understood the attraction that Moose have over people(you know those that buy stuffed Moose etc), but once I saw a herd up close I totally understood it. I love these creatures. Makes me want to take a drive up to the park to see some. We've been told that they are coming over the ridge from Grand Lake to Rocky Mountain National Park. I'm not sure what impact they would have on the park, other than having more cars and people visit during the summer.

Today I'm walking with Kam and then will go visit another friend. She has a lung condition and doesn't get out as much as she used to, so I love going over and catching up over a cup of coffee. I finished my Patriotic table runner yesterday and my daughter will machine quilt it for me. Today we are supposed to get into the 80's and I hope to join my firstborn at the pool this afternoon with her kiddos. Right now it's a bit foggy; I've actually got jeans on. Yesterday I did 3 miles with friends, but today Kam is bringing Lexie and we tend to go a bit slower. It's just good to be enjoying the time together.
Tomorrow we have our annual town garage sale, so I'll be out with Kam and her family first thing-as in 7:30 am, hitting the area.

I hope that whatever your day holds, you find a bit of time to stop and do something that you love.
