Pretty as Peaches

My daughter, Amanda, and I headed up to Grand Junction, Colorado to pay a visit to my youngest daughter, Mary, and her husband, Matt.  They recently brought into their home two little girls under a Foster-to-adopt program.  We met the beautiful sisters and immediately fell in love with them.  They were pretty as peaches!

We went to one of the Grand Junction city pools to cool off on Saturday. 

Talking about peaches, on Sunday we went to the Farmer's Market and Peach Festival in Palisade, Colorado (just a few miles from Grand Junction).

 We stopped at the Palisade Cafe 11.0 for lunch where they had a special Peach Festival inspired menu.

 This is a farm-to-table restaurant in the charming little town of Palisade amid miles and miles of fruit trees, vineyards, and vegetable fields. This little town on the the Colorado Western Slope gets a lot of revenue from agri-tourism.

 Going home we encountered a monsoon driven thunderstorm in New Mexico as we drove back to Albuquerque.  A lovely long weekend.  We'll be back soon!

  1. Foster to adoption is a new idea to me. It seems to have some advantages all around. We have two adopted grandchildren....
