The last stop on our week trip was Roosevelt/Vernal. I haven't been back since we moved about 3 years ago and it was so weird to go back. I felt all sorts of sentimental and it was like walking down memory lane. That place will always have a special place in my heart, and it is easier to look back on it with fondness than it was to live there with fondness haha. Rai was so happy to finally see the place that he was born and where he lived his first months of life.
On Friday morning we dropped Luke and Tracen off to go golfing for "work". And then Mylo, Rai and I drove to Vernal. So weird how familiar it felt to drive that stretch of road between Vernal and Roosevelt. And we just did all the things we used to do. We went to Ross and TJ Maxx. Then it was lunchtime and so we picked up some Cafe Rio (still not a lot of restaurant options there) and headed to the park. It was so fun to see the T Rex all dressed up and the pink dinosaur and of course our old house.
We went to the park that I used to take Tracen to when I was pregnant with Rai and then the two of them when Rai was born. We did the little walk around (but the fire ants were gone) and to the other park.
|I have a picture of Tracen under this same tree in the fall|
It was a hot day, and so I tried to hide out in the shade as much as possible til Luke and Tracen got dropped off and we made the rest of the way home.
We stopped in Glenwood Springs for dinner and went to this cool little taco place. It was a fun change from fast food but man were our tacos spicy that I could barely eat mine (and I like spicy).
We made it home later that night and it was so nice to sleep in our beds and not all in the same room.
