This summer was packed with so many wonderful memories.  I spent quite a bit of time with my 2 beautiful grandchildren Jack and Scarlett. We shared some memorable moments in Aspen…hiking, picnicking and rock climbing.  We also had a wonderful time at the race track, at the rodeo and horseback riding. And for the 4th of July, Norman and I had a great time dressing up for a Western style evening with the big kids.
