We had a wonderful time in Colorado. We rented a cabin/house in Divide, Colorado. It was a perfect place waaaayyy up in the mountains in Pike National Forest. It took 15 min from the bottom of the mountain in Divide to work our way up to our place. The Aspen Trees were gorgeous here! We went to the sites surrounding Colorado Springs like Garden of the Gods, Florrisant Fossil Beds, Seven Falls, Cripple Creek, Royal Gorge (horseback riding for the girls and rafting for the boys) and a day to Denver to the Red Rocks and a visit with my college friend Andrea Darschewski White. I really wanted to head up to Estes Park,but we ran out of time. We had a beautiful view off of the deck and played Monopoly and enjoyed the hot tub from there.We cooked dinner almost everynight at the cabin and had picnic lunches every day on our days out exploring, hiking, etc. WONDERFUL TRIP!
Since there are over 500 pics that I took, I will just post a link to the photo book when I am done!
Anna and Justin always enjoy the zoo. It was time to renew our zoo passes and sign up for camp, so it was a perfect day to stay and play. I am so glad the zoo lets us add Justin to our yearly pass. We were hoping that Pastor Danny would be our train conductor, but not this time.
