Our youngest daughter invited me to join her and her two daughters for a short trip this weekend. It was Autobot's regionals competition of level 9 gymnasts. It sounded like a fun 3-generation trip. Billl was going to drive me down to their house early Friday morning.
Us girls finally got on our way just to discover we were in the midst of a huge traffic jam outside of Denver. Due to poor visibility - which had caused several bad accidents - the highway we needed was closed and traffic was being routed around in circles! We weren't allowed to continue east, and after being sent back west, were told we could not get back to Denver. Thanks to having traveled some of the back roads in that area to visit a friend who used to live there, I recognized one of the county roads. We headed south, picked up a road going east and managed to skirt the whole mess, returning to I-70 about five miles later. We continued on our way for a great drive.
It was planned to spend the day at Cowtown Living Museum on Saturday, but when we got there it was pouring down rain, so we opted to wait until later. Asset and I stayed at the hotel while Nebalie and Autobot went to the meet to watch a team mate compete. Three members of Autobot's team qualified to attend this meet; quite an honor.
Show time! The cannon has been moved onto the battlefield and we get to see it in action - a noisy thing it was.
