A cold Weekend in October

Fall is upon us and it seems Winter too... some days.
We had a great weekend with some visting family from Texas. We took a drive up to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park on Sunday. This time we had a great tour guide. A Texas Native who spends his summers in Colorado. Just when we were finishing up the tour a snow storm blew in. SO- we played. Below is Ethan getting ready to throw thisbig snow ball at his selected target.

Ellie, loving the snow.

Daddy, Ethan and Ellie making snow balls.
The infamous Stanley Hotel. Where Stephen King is known to have thought up "The Shining" while staying at it.
They have great tours.
This pictures is not from this weekend. I just found it and wanted to include it.

Finally, after almost 2 years of living in Colorado, we had our first "wild" bear sighting. This was taken with a cell phone, so it is definitely not clear. But the bear was about 50 ft from us.... (maybe?) We wer safe in our car. So no worries. It was beautiful.

Our first picture of Ethan and Llie "holding up Balance Rock" at Garden of the Gods. I can't beleive after all the times we've been there... we've never had them do this.
