day trip

Saturday, March 21, 2009

We've decided since we live SO close to SO many vacation destinations, we're going to take advantage of it.

What an awesome day!

Shad, the kids and I all took off for Estes Park, CO today and we had a BLAST. Its been a long time since we've taken a day just to spend together. Actually I think its been since our vacation last May, so we've decided now that we're living SO close to SO many vacation destinations, we're going to take advantage of it.
We're hoping to take day trips, or maybe weekend trips about once a month, if not more often this summer. We won't be able to afford a full vacation, but with two and three days here and there I think we'll be just fine.
Today, it was Estes Park.
I'm hoping next time we can tackle the Cave of the Winds.
I took waaaaaay too many pictures, but what can I say? My kids are adorable...and the scenery was just too beautiful to resist. ;)
Enjoy! (cllick on the box if you want bigger pictures)

This is one of the places that I want to go back to. It is just so beautiful and peaceful there. Glad that you enjoyed the trip!!

Beautiful pictures!

I've heard so many times how beautiful Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park are. Tamara and the girls met up with friends there last summer for the day.

Wise plan to enjoy the country's beautiful areas since you live nearby.

Enjoy. It looks beautiful. I have heard such great things about Estes Park but have never been.

Beautiful scenery! It's why we love the wild west! We love day trips, too. There's plenty to see and do around these parts. If you ever decide to venture into my neighboring state, give me a holler! I'll show you around the place.

I don't think it is possible to take too many pictures. Looks like you had a good time. Makes me miss the mountains.-Christie

Cave of the Winds is fun. The CS zoo is great. In the summer there is a cowboy show at the Flying W ranch. Old Colorado City has a great puppet show....let me know if you need more amusements in the CO area! (biggest kid attractions in Denver: Elitches, Casa Bonita and the Pillsbury Cookie Factory tour. And BRONCO GAMES!)
