The Darragh Family, Golden, Colorado
December 14-16, 2001
What a treat it was to have Rufus come for a two-night sleepover! Thanks for sharing him, Sarah. He arrived just in time for our family's Friday pizza and movie night. Pete's Rufus and travelling Rufus made friends quickly. They both laughed at Pete's joke: If you eat too many Cheetos, you have to check for ketones with Cheeto-stix!
We think Rufus has had fun. He played ping-pong with Pete and his brothers. He go pretty rowdy with all the boys here. But, Pete and Rufus both have been running a bit high, so mom and dad let them get rough and tumble for awhile. They also played with Pete's trains. Both Rufuses went with the boys and some friends to a funny Cowboy Christmas play. Ya-hoo!
This travelling bear enjoys it out west. He likes to sit on the windowsill to look out at the snow-covered Rocky Mountains. It seems he's imagining the adventures a bear could have in those hills.
After helping us decorate our Christmas tree this afternoon, Rufus will go back to Sarah's and then on to Ohio. That's a coincidence because Pete's cousin Ashley, who has diabetes, lives in the Buckeye State.
We love how Rufus helped us become friends with Sarah and her family. By his travels, he'll link together a chain of friends across America!
