|Crystal and her Daddy on Father's Day|
Sunday was a busy and wonderful and exhausting day. Crystal went with us to the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden where some of the Galloping Geese were running and folks like us were riding. See pictures below. Click on any picture to enlarge it.
We rode motor number seven. While just a tot, Richard, along with his family, rode Engine # 4 quite a lot when his mom taught school and cooked for the miners at the Alta, CO. A special part of history came alive today.

Later, Crystal also took us out to a very posh restaurant as a Father's Day treat, and we continued the railroad theme by playing Rail Baron (an elaborate railroad board game) at Ronnie and Crystal's house for the next several evenings. It is a game we, as a family, have played for many, many years. Richard is the most frequent winner, but Crystal beat us handily the first game, however, he did regain his top dog position in the rematch.
I forgot to mention the Raisin Cream pie Giovanna baked Grandpa with the guidance of her mother. It was great, and I don't even like raisins!

So, yesterday, we sorted the closets and some interior areas, and emptied all our bays except for our ladder and spare tire. All our boxes and tools and equipment is sorted, rearranged and stowed logically... but now, it doesn't fit very well... And we'll be moving some at the next stop. I gave away a lot and more goes this weekend.

We spent the evening and ate with Crystal and family and will give our rig a good cleaning tomorrow. Yes, even on our full time vacation, we must clean house and pay bills.
