Colorado 2008

Troy unexpectedly had some slow time and so he could work a mini-vacation into his busy schedule. We decided to Go West! We headed to Woodland Park, CO for a long weekend along with his dad, Mary and niece, Dani. We couldn't all fit in one vehicle so they followed the van in their truck. Although it was a long car ride the kids stayed busy with snacks, games and crafts. I was fortunate to come across the Target 75% off sale and cleaned them out of games and crafts.

Even though our time in Colorado was short, we managed to fit in Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, Pikes Peak, Helen Hunt Falls, Cripple Creek, a Cowboy Chuckwagon dinner show and the Dinosaur Resource Center.

The kids loved the hotel pool and playing in mountain streams. They had fun panning for gold and now Matthew wants to be a gold prospector when he grows up. They were all impressed with the Dinosaur Resource Center in Woodlawn Park and Paul earned a cub scout badge there. They were troopers when it came to hiking and had more stamina than I expected.
