Saturday, we drove out to Grand Junction for Shawn's rugby match. It was a beautiful day outside, and Shawn's team won, so that was good. Unfortunately, though, Shawn hurt his back pretty early in the game...but kept playing for another 40 minutes or so before taking himself out. We hung out with the ruggers for a little while after the game, and the plan was for everyone to check in to their hotel rooms before meeting up somewhere to watch the Avalanche play-off game. However, Shawn and I were apparently tired...we fell asleep at our hotel around 6:30. We woke up briefly around 8:30, long enough to say that we should head out. The next thing I knew, it was 4:00am. So needless to say, we didn't watch the game...or even eat dinner Saturday night.
Sunday, the plan had been to go hiking, but Shawn could barely stand up, let alone walk. So we just got brunch and then headed back home. The combo of Aleve and ThermaCare seemed to help Shawn's back...at least enough for him to feel okay about sitting on a cramped plane to head back to Seattle. And that was our exciting weekend.
