Colorado Trip 2012

My mom's cousin, Michael McGoldrick, celebrated his 75th birthday this June. I got to know him well when I went to school in Colorado so when we were invited down to Colorado for the big celebration, we were happy to make the trip! The kids once again did AMAZING for the 20 hour car ride, especially since it was a quick trip. Basically 3 days of driving for 2 days of fun. There were terrible forest fires in many parts of Colorado and when we made this trip, many were actually leaving due to the fires, but we were were going to an area not affected. Although I will say I have never seen it so dry there so early in the year. Even the drive through Utah, Wyoming and northern Colorado was much more barren than I recall from my previous drives to and from school. There was a strict no open flame law in effect. They couldn't even burn tiki tourches or candels.

Our little river explorers! This trout stream is lower than it has been in 400 years! The kids had SO much fun playing it! Elle was always leading to forge it and would have stayed there all day if we let her.

We took a little hike up behind Michael's home. Because McKenzie was the only other kid there, we spent a lot of time with her and her parents. So much fun- we saw a fawn on this little hike. 

Here's the hiking group! (minus me of course, taking the photo!)

Blue grass band the last night. The set up was amazing. Such a beautiful property in the mountains.

Our kids standing on our front porch watching the cows graze.

It is so great to have the cows so close to enjoy-  the kids love it.

Just about 2 more weeks and then we will be enjoying them in a different way... wink wink... BBQ anyone!?

Fun time with cousins!

Such sweet cousins. Chloe and Elle. Elle says "I just love Chloe, she gets me."

Nothing puts Christian to sleep like a boat ride. =)

Summer time!

Kids and popsicles! It's summer time! We have acres of grass, and they choose to sit in the gravel driveway to enjoy their popsicles! =)

Strawberry Jam! Thank you Spooners Berry Farm for growing DELICIOUS strawberries!

Setting up the tent to make sure all parts are there for our Colorado camping trip. No rain fly- glad we didn't really need it. Rained a little, but we just through a quilt on top and it worked well enough. Everything drys so fast there.
