A Trip Down Memory Lane: Chip's Visit Last Year

Okay, so things have not been going as I planned. I didn't get to go on the trip to Ohio. My coworker at the construction site is hurt. And things are all delayed. BUT I have a very exciting thing to tell you about.  I think it's exciting, anyway. I'll tell you all about it next time, for now... have a filler blog entry. Hope you enjoy this little blast from the past!

So about a year ago, an awesome little bear named Chip, came to visit us.

Most of the pictures of his visit are lost now, but I found a handful of them, and thought I should put them here.

Of course, we didn't just go Jeeping. We had a white water raft adventure on the floor of the doll store. (That's me, Chip and Tabby. Tabby was the official teddy bear handler of the visit. She's fluent in Bearglish.)

And we helped out at a miniatures show, which was a lot of fun.

Tabby and Chip met a friendly reindeer.

But I admit, MY favorite part was the Jeeping. We went on some pretty rough trails, up behind Central City.

We did some awesome rock climbing in my old Jeep.

And saw some amazing scenery.

I think Chip enjoyed it at the time, but I'm not sure he'd go Jeeping again.

We were blessed with awesome weather and open roads! It was a great trip!

Well, and honestly, the worst day Jeeping is still better than the BEST day working.

And then Chip went home to New Mexico.

Chip and Tabby got along really well. It's pretty handy having Pixies around who speak different languages. Even though Chip spoke awesome English, I think it comforts anyone to get to speak their native tongue while visiting a strange place.

Anyway, there's a little walk down memory lane, since the original post got lost. Hope you liked it. Maybe someday there'll be another traveling critter here for me to tell you about. You never know.
