Our Delightful Long Weekend in Colorado

Hello friends!  We just got home from our long weekend in Colorado!  I'll summarize our trip in the next few blog posts, but in short, we had a really good time!  The day in Denver with Adam, Rose and Brad's wedding, our day in Golden, and 2 days in Rocky Mountain National Park were all tons of fun!!!

Here are a few "teaser" pictures (to steal from fellow blogger Bengela's example from a recent -- more exciting -- trip she took).

Dave got a birthday trip to Caboose Hobbies!

Our college friend Adam met us in Denver and showed us around.  LOVE his "Skywalker Ranch" t-shirt:

We had a great time at Rose and Brad's wedding at Buckley AFB and their delightful reception -- Paris-themed, of course!

Who'da thunk Jacob was such a great dancer??

The Colorado Railroad Museum was a good time...here's Dave explaining the difference between standard gauge and narrow gauge, and how the track they were on was "dual gauge":

The boys had a good time at the Coors Brewery Tour (even the little ones!):

And Mom learned how NOT to pay $20 for a 5x7 family shot in front of a green screen by using her iPhone camera (shhhhhhh!):

Our stay in Estes Park was at the YMCA of the Rockies -- an amazing family-friendly resort!

We did two half-day hikes in Rocky Mountain National Park, the boys are such troopers and seemed enthralled with the rugged mountains and the plants and animals around them.

Yep, that's SNOW behind Timmy! We took the park's Trail Ridge Road from Estes Park west to the Continental Divide.
