Dace, the ranch manager, asked me to take a family into Steamboat Springs around 2:30, so they could do some light shopping prior to the rodeo later tonight. I was all up for it, especially after hearing it was going to be Spencer's (the autistic child) family. I can't begin to tell you the joy Spencer brought throughout the week. He was a bit quirky, but he really has a good heart. So, at 2:30, I met them out front of the lodge and we began our 40 minute drive into Steamboat Springs - all the while getting to know one another.
I dropped them off at the F.M
On our way back, Sandi, Spencer and I saw the most beautiful rainbow I think I have ever seen. I made sure to take a few photos of it and hope to frame one of them for my house one day. Vista Verde just seemed to be at the end of the rainbow. ;o) Dropped them off and headed back to the rodeo. Rain had stopped and I was able to meet up with everyone and enjoy the last hour and half with the rest of the guests and the few employees that drove them.
There was roping, bull riding, and fancy cowboy tricks. One cowboy, the One Armed Bandit, was by far the best part of the show.
After the rodeo, we loaded up the car and headed back to the ranch. Tomorrow is my day off, so I watched a movie when I got home on my laptop and fell asleep to wake up whenever I wanted to in the a.m. Something about that gave me so much peace!
Hope you enjoyed your Friday as much as I did.
