Visit From Chuck!

We had a great visit from an old friend, over the 4th of July weekend.  Chuck went to school with Heath and I, and now lives in Missouri.  He teaches French, and aspires to be a HS Principal.  Besides being super loved by everyone, when he was in high school, he was also the class clown.  Super fun (and funny) to be around.  So now, it's kinda ironic that he's a teacher, but he makes a wonderful teacher.  I'm sure his students all adore him.  Anyway, he drove over here to have some mountain time, and we were thrilled to see him.  He brought his two older boys with him to go camping and hiking with our family, as well as two other families that we grew up with too, who live around here.  It was a great weekend.

Chuck got to meet Kimble, who was still on oxygen at that time.  Chuck made fun of his leg warmers.

They all went hiking at Garden of the Gods, as well as Helen Hunt Falls (not named after the actress).

Another family joined us on the hike, and they had two dogs. My kids loved walking around with them.

Anytime you want to come back, Chuck, we'd love to have you!
