Happy Independence Day!  We are so thankful for the men and women who fight to keep this country free!  Make sure you thank and hug a veteran today!  We were lucky enough to spend this 4th of July with the great people of Creede (along with 10,000 other visitors!)  We started the day with the 4th of July parade – it was great!  Best parade I have seen and it was actually a really big parade for a town whose population is 500!  
Everyone lining the streets of Creede for the parade!
These were some ornery old men!  I was just praying they wouldn't break anything!

This was a fun one!

Brandon's favorite one!
These boys looked fun!
At the parade with Wally!

After the parade we strolled the streets of Creede to check out the stores before we were to meet Wally at Kip’s Grill. What a crazy fun place!  We had the best time at Kip’s!  Drank some good margaritas, ate some elk burgers, listened to a great live band from Alabama, and made lots of new friends!  We were at Kip’s all day celebrating and didn’t leave until after the fireworks show at dark thirty!  The great thing about Creede is you can walk everywhere to get to where you are going…the Post house is just a few steps from Kip’s – which is handy dandy!  
Best margaritas - hands down!
Our new friends from Alamosa!
Jammin' to the band!

Mile 4524: Creede!
Our clan with Kip!  He's one crazy fun guy!

I will end this post with the words of our new friend Kip……FREEEEEEEDOM!  

Day 12: Creede, CO

Jess’ Jibberish & Bran’s Babbles:  
  • I’m not a playa I just crush a lot!
  • If this causes a divorce…..
  • I think we had too much fun...
