Nostalgic Snack

When I was a kid, Mom would make buttered tortillas for us (seven of us kids) for breakfast then send us on our way to grade school.  It has been a whirlwind raising my own kids.  They are super picky.  The older one doesn’t like tortilla with just butter.  She prefers quesadillas.  I’ve made a quesadilla for her once but I could never get the cheese amount exactly the way she likes it (but I think she likes it thick and gooey).  She didn’t complain but she hasn’t asked me to make it again.  As for my youngest, she doesn’t go near tortillas or cheese.

I like mine plain with butter just the way Mom made it.

A Day Downtown

The family went to watch a baseball game at the Coors Field in Denver.  The game started out great but the Rockies lost.  We weren’t there to see the end because we left when the second thunderstorm came through.  I took some photos with my phone and did some editing with VSCO.

This first photo was taken when people cleared the seats because the rain was coming down hard.  Everyone moved to the covered seatings or behind the stadium where the food court is.  We waited in our seats for about 20 minutes and then the intercom came on and said everyone had to leave the covered seatings because lightning was coming through.  It was then that we decided to head home.
