C O L O R F U L * C O L O R A D O

What an awesome weekend! We drove back to my old hometown of Rifle, Colorado. (My sister flew in from Alaska for her 20 year high school reunion, and we decided to make a vacation out of it to go see her.) I realized it would take too long to journal the entire trip, so here are highlights:

  • a trip to Urgent Care for Max who had an ear infection, and later a sick Lukas from a stomach bug (ugh!)
  • a surprise visit from Aunt Mary & Christy from Denver (thanks for the darling quilt and the play-doh...it was a life saver for the boys and provided hours of entertainment!!)
  • The Lord's house (no, not the temple...Jim & Kelly Lord. They are the coolest couple ever and Kolby and Kaiden are now my boys hero's!!!! We want to come back, the boys miss them already. Kelly is Mindy's BFF since 6th grade.)
  • the Glenwood Hot Springs (way overpriced, but a must do if you are in the area).
  • fireworks from the City Market parking lot
  • Rib City (yummiest ribs around)
  • a blast from the past--0599 Mesa Drive (my old house growing up), Rifle Creek Estates, Rifle Falls, Fish Hatchery
  • the caves at Rifle Falls (this was the boys favorite besides Aunt Mindy & Kelly's boys).
  • our hotel overlooking beautiful Colorado scenery and the Colorado River
  • spending time with our favorite sister, sister-in-law and aunt (all three being Mindy)!

What a fun trip! I love reminiscing! You look great to J! I am glad you got away! 3 kids and no vacations can be rough!

It was so good to see you guys. My pictures of us did not turn out - they were blurry. I should have taken them on auto. LOL You'll have to email me a copy of yours. The one with you and my mom is really cute. The pictures I took of Zoey did turn out I just need to edit them. I'll send them to you when I'm done. Your family is the cutest! Your boys are so funny and Zoey is so sweet. :)
