It’s been a hectic few weeks, but I’m missing out on some great pictures & milestones so I needed to update for family! Before school started (this week), I took the kids on a last minute trip to Colorado. It was a spur of the moment thing – Jesse is recovering from knee surgery still so he isn’t up for travel, but I found incredibly cheap tickets online from LAX to Denver (less than $300 total for all of us!!!), so I just decided to jump on it. Plus, it’s hard to pass up visiting the Jacobsen clan – they are a few of our favorite people in the entire world – in addition to about the easiest people for kids to stay with as well since both Selah and Asher love all of them to pieces!
Anyways, I took so many pictures I’ll have to split it up per each day there to fit it all in a reasonable post. First day was hiking at Castlewoid Canyon after getting off the plane. Asher loved it, Selah had to be coerced into having fun, and I love anything that combines outdoors, exercise, and good company!
My little hippie boy stripped down with Hannah to go skinny dipping as soon as he realized there was water while playing ‘trolls’ under the bridge:
Not a bad setting, right?!
Luckily Mr. Nels (Hannah’s dad) must have had special training in making hiking fun for kids, so he took Selah’s stinky attitude as a challenge and transformed it into an adventure, thank goodness!
It was a great time exploring – perfect day, perfect activity, and perfect people! We only were missing Ms. Kelly (Hannah’s mom) and of course, Daddy (who we would have loved to be with this trip, but is recovering so he can do the next one!).
