Catching up on this Winter/ Spring

 We have been up to our same old tricks, spending as much time as we can outside in our beautiful state.
" Lucky are we"
 Above, you can catch a glimpse of Claire Bear's little prissy side. We don't see it too often so we still think its cute.
 Hiking at the Garden of the Gods and below at the AFA.
 Here we are at Roxborough State Park
 One afternoon, Claire and I made this snow man.
 Ellie has absolutely loved her ballet class.

We are back

 I can hardly believe how fast this year has gone by. My Ellie is finishing up her Kindergarten year.

 Two great shots on a beautiful little hike at Agnes Veil Falls near Mt Princeton.
 Yummy ice cream on the way home  in Buena Vista.

Natalie visits!

 Yay! Welcome Natalie.
 I can just hear Rosemary Clooney singing: " Sisters, Sisters... there were never such devoted sisters"

It was so great to have Natalie come for a visit. 
We had so much fun taking her on a hike and doing so many other great things during her visit.

 We also took the kids to Focus on The Family for a fun play time.
 More pics from our 7 bridges hike.
Check out the cool roots below.

  The third and last bridge of our hike that day. It started to drizzle so we turned back.
 From the bottom, Ellie, then Ethan and Natalie and then at the very top you can almost see Richard peeking over the edge.
 A pic at bridge #2.
 Natalie and Claire sitting by Balance Rock at Garden of the  Gods.  The sun had obviously come out.
I love this picture of Claire and Richard.
We even got to got to visit Natalie's other cousin, Daniel who is a cadet at the Air Force Academy.
 Oh yeah ... we swung by the Olympics training center too.Whew... we were busy!
 AWE Cousin love!

We had so much fun with Josh and Dana at GABF 2012! Thanks to Natalie.
 We also went to daddy's work.
So much fun was had with Natalie. We will miss her.

last camp out of the season

We had a great Camp out at one of our State's most beautiful State Parks: Mueller State Park. Just a hop, skip and jump out west. 

 A great hike up to the Crags.

 And back down...
