The highlight of Grand Junction was picking Heidi up. It had been two weeks since she left Trey and me in San Diego to return to work. On our long journey across Nevada and Utah he would tell me to turn off the road every time we passed a blue airport sign. “Aren’t we going to pick up Mommy?” he would ask.
Her flight arrived that evening and after picking her up we headed into town to Kannah Creek Brewery, a restaurant a friend recommended. Though the place is a brewery it is known for its incredible pizza. After dinner we introduced Trey to one of mankind’s greatest achievements: the root beer float. He absolutely loved it and the sugar kicked in later in our hotel room as he bounced on the bed in a frenzy.
