When we got there, Darrell and Polly greeted us in the driveway. It was so nice to see them. I think it had been two years since we saw them last. Polly had made a really nice lunch and set the table so beautifully. We really felt like we were getting the royal treatment. We even had chocolate cake with ice cream for dessert. It was all delicious, but my favorite part was getting to talk with them. They are always so positive and encouraging.
We ended up staying there and visiting for a good part of the afternoon. I hope we didn't overstay our welcome. We all posed together in front of their amazing view off their back deck.
When we left Darrell and Polly's, we took the Yukon up the incredibly wind-y and narrow, but really beautiful road up to the top of Lookout Mountain. We stopped at the top to enjoy the 360 degree view and we took a look at Buffalo Bill's grave.

On the way down the other side of the mountain, I had to laugh at just how tightly switchbacked the road looked from above. Then, on the way down we saw this crazy square of a rainbow which seemed to be hanging above the Coors factory of all places.
Spence and Sky got cleaned up and into their pjs. There was even enough time in the day for Brock and I to take Heidi for a nice stroll in the moonlight on the bike path. When we got back to the trailer, the little boys ate a few snacks since we didn't really have dinner after our filling lunchtime meal. Then to bed they went, and the rest of us watched one of the channels that we could get over the antenna which was showing the Clint Eastwood movie The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. What a classic. LOL
