We’re Back!


What is this?!  About a half hour outside of Denver we hit this.  Freak hail storm.  Have you ever seen hail like this?  We thought it was snow at first and the temp dropped like almost 30 degrees in 10 min.


Day 1: On top of the Denver Science and Nature center.  Gorgeous view. 


Blowing off some car crampadge.  Finally in Colorado Springs.  Look at that view in the background….

Day 3: Garden of the Gods:

\This is balancing rock.  Can you tell why????               And this is a crazy monkey-boy.

OK.  Decent picture…. major acrobatics to get it…. Voted most wasted time by our family.  could be b/c we would NOT fork over the $$ to walk out on this bridge…  Royal Gorge Bridge.  NOWHERE obn the brochure do they tell you they want your 1st borns college education fund to just walk out on it.  We did get some ice cream at Cold Stone… but is that really worth a 3 hour drive???? 


And this was GREAT.  Hailey’s first friend.  And these two boys were just babies when they last saw each other.  My great friend when we were in Montana…. Look at that group of kids!



Day 4:

Pike’s Peak.  Wow.  Early start to the day. 14nerraypikespeak

I will justify that look on my face as either a.) it’s only like 30 something up there, or b.) it’s Early.  Take your pick or use both. 


Kids love cacti.                                                     The kids going into Whit’s End at Focus on the Family.  GREAT place!!

Well, that’s the highlight of our trip.
