Quick trip to Colorado









Stephen & I decided that our family needed a quick "getaway" this week. So, we packed up the kiddos and headed for Grand Junction, Colorado. It was beautiful. At first we thought it would be fun to camp... then we laughed and found a hotel. We spent several hours at the park and shopping. We also drove to Grandview Colorado. It's like a little Park City. It's really charming, but very busy. We have really come to find out that we are small town people. We both thought it would be fun to stay there if for some reason everyone else left :) We really love these random "breaks" from reality. It's quite refreshing actually. And the kids love it too!!


I have to say that the highlight was the swimming pool at the hotel. I sat on a chair with Ry while Stephen kept Avery, Kendyl and Brad afloat. All three had water wings on. Stephen could hardly see... he had one on each arm and one on his back. I seriously wish I had the camera. But I was laughing to hard to think about anything else....

I'm jealous. Our summer trip isn't for another month and a half. It's good to get away from the crazy stuff every now and again. I especially like the last minute quick trips.
