Mom and Bill have been married 25 years. Dang, that's a long time.
The story of Casa Bonita was the subject of a True Story Tuesday hosted by Rachel and Mr. Daddy a few years ago. So it only seemed natural that when they came to visit, we had to meet them there.
We've met Rachel face-to-face before, at High Country Rendezvous, and we've been trying to get her back with Mr. Daddy and Itty Bit. Things just seemed to line up perfectly and plans fell into place and next thing we knew, they were here!
It was fabulous to see them, even though we pretty much ran them ragged. So much for a weekend of relaxation. They have to go home to relax (as I'm typing this, they're still an hour away from home after getting up before the sun to catch their flight). Itty Bit was a good sport about being dragged all over the northern part of Colorado. We started their whirlwind tour at Casa Bonita, using them as an excuse to get Mom and Bill there for their 25th Anniversary. Sneaky, no?
Before we even got in the door, Jay was making trouble with Itty Bit. Of course, once the cameras came out, Itty Bit got all sorts of shy. Apparently, it's funnier to laugh at Jay "peeing" in the fountain than to pose yourself.
Bill put on his "no paparazzi" face once we got into the restaurant, and this is the best picture I could get:
|"No photos, please"|
I didn't take a lot of pictures, because I was having too much time gabbing with everyone and watching Itty Bit's reactions to the cliff divers and Black Bart's skits.
However, there are a couple of mandatory picture spots in Casa Bonita - the little inlet at the base of the waterfall and the fountain.
I think Rachel has more pictures on her camera, and I'm pretty certain Mom and Bill, do too. Well, they've got pictures on the camera Bill didn't drown on their vacation.
