Rocky Mountain High

We had a GREAT trip to Colorado over the past two weeks! Such an improvement over the last trip where everyone was very sick for most of the time.

The first week we hung out at the cabin, our little home away from home, with my family.

Beautiful weather and cool temperatures! We had highs in the 60s most days!

On one of the first days, we managed to take a day trip into Denver for some shopping. There was a bungee jump that all the kids wanted to do, including JD.
But after a long day of shopping, playing and jumping, all the kids were pooped. I just LOVE this picture!

We also visited the Royal Gorge Bridge, which is not recommended for those with a fear of heights!

As you can tell by the last picture, it was very windy that day up on the bridge. The suspension bridge was swaying back and forth, which was a little nervewracking and I'm not even scared of heights!!

There were plenty of activities for the kids so we made a day of it.

Back at the cabin, there was marshmallow roasting...

...swinging on the back porch

and lots of long nature walks and rides on the ATV around the house.

We also had a day at the hot springs at Mt Princeton...not too many pics because we were too busy swimming!! Lots of fun!

Coming up tomorrow...
7 Year Itch? How Colorado can take the "sting" out of any trip!
