|The kids ( and Kelvin and I too) were thrilled to see the snow on the way to Steamboat! It was cool to stop and let the kids stomp around in it. Snow in July...who knew!?!|
The kids have a ball playing together. Jack and Bailey, the twins, are the same age as Carleigh, and Luke fits right in the mix. Kelvin and the kids and I all enjoyed the 4th of July with a great ride up to the top of Mt. Werner for a look around from high above Steamboat. We even saw a baby moose!
|The baby moose! Can you believe it!? How cool is that? We saw him while riding the gondola.|
|It was fun hanging out and snacking while we waited for the fireworks. |
I made a batch of the Apricots and Goat Cheese Bites Sandy posted on her blog. They were delicioso!
Before leaving Steamboat, Kelvin rented a bike for Luke so he could try out the cool pump park just outside our friends' condo.
We then headed West to Delta, Colorado, where we spent a few days at the elk camp where Kelvin goes elk hunting. We loved playing in the ice cold creek, hiking around, fishing, hanging out and riding Mr. Hank's horse.
We even finished reading aloud the first book in the Little House series while we drove. The kids (and Kelvin and I) enjoyed it so much! It's always hard coming home to the humidity and heat after spending time in the gorgeous cool mountains. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. We can't wait to go back.
There's still much to do for rest of summer...
- water park fun
- ice skating
- outdoor theater
- eating more watermelon
- drinking more watermelon daiquiris
- reading aloud more of the Little House series
- going to the library
- splasing in the blow up pool
- making pottery
- and more...
