July 3, 2006

As a side effect of planning the Powers family reunion in Colorado, the local relatives became the hosts.

Jack and Ginger welcomed us to Colorado. Aunt Ginger provided hospitality at her home. She allowed us to sleep there a few nights, provided meals and played games with us. White at her house, Jaclyn and Jennifer played Hearts with Uncle Jackie where they learned the mantra “Get Uncle Jack!” At the bed and breakfast in Colorado Springs, Aunt Ginger made many plans and arrangements and provided the meals.

Uncle Jack’s served as Hiking Guide. He planned excellent hikes for Rocky Mountain National Park. His knowledge and expertise of the area proved valuable. For example, knowing about the afternoon thunderstorms he forced us to leave early in the morning. His plan was good. Near the end of our hike, we heard thunder and felt rain begin falling. Luckily we were close to the parking lot. If we had started later we would not have been so fortunate.

Thanks to our hosts. Your efforts were much appreciated!
