Final Camping trip for summer before baby sister arrives

Thought I'd add some more pictures from our camping weekend. The Thomas' came for a visit and we had fun hanging out at the campsite. Ellie, Jack and Ethan exploring.
The kids and the dogs enjoying some very cold mountain snow run-off.

Dana and I enjoying a game of scrabble.

We had a great campsite at the Crags. Nothing like cooking outside.

Silly faces.

Chillin by the fire.
Getting some firewood.

Camping in CO...perfect.

There is nothing like breakfast and fresh coffee while camping.

Ellie took this pic of me and captured Ethan hard at work jacking up the camper.

Two little exhausted kids.

A little glimpse at what Richard and Randy will look out in say about 40 years? This was taken after painting their dad's house.

The kids were so excited to get to stay overnight in a hotel. They got to swim and enjoy TV in bed. Probably ESPN... I'm thinking.

One of our favorite hiking spots: The Crags

We found this great little spot to hang out, snack and play in an icy mountain stream while Richard did a trail run.

This was the first stream spot and then we did the little hike up to the nex one. (previous picturs)

Ethan is making a sad face because he had lost the rock that was tied on to his stick fishing pole.
my little trooper . These days she even wants to go hiking in her skirts and dresses.

Daddy and E goofing off.

My warrior son... or as he calls himself : a saver
Ethan and Ellie love it when our K9 friend, Kiko comes to stay. I don't know that their love is reciprocated. (as you can see)
My Jedi knight in training.
