Lacey was keeping the pressure on! It was rather amusing!
And then Erin and Hans realized they forgot something, so they made a mad dash inside and barely got back in time..Abby and I were just so sad that we were in such a quiet house all alone...

The water was like glass so the reflectioons in the water were stunning!
We found a little area where they had been clearing firewood, so we made a small campfire and roasted hotdogs and marshmallows for lunch. Then we headed up the trailhead to Mt. Elbert. I just loved this area of Aspens, it's one of the few pics of me!! We heard water and found some run off water heading down the mountain, it was loud. So we had to stop for the family pic!
We did not make it up Mt Elbert, but we did go for a van ride up to Indepence pass for another photo op. Pluse we picked up ideas for future trips. OK enough CO pics, thanks for looking!

Chris seriously wanted mountains this year and fishing! So we headed up to the Leadville CO area where it was in the 70's during the day and low 40's at night. The scenery was beautiful and then it started raining! It was not just the afternoon CO rain, it rained and rained and rained! We made it through one night of roughing it in a tent with cold temps and lots of rain.
Erin was altitude sick so she did not have a very good time either day!
Warming himself up with his pancake. Why do pancakes on the open grill taste so good?

A newer KS windfarm on our way, I do not think they detract from the scenery any, but now there's talk that they may "steel" the wind. Some days, that would be OK with me!!!!! First stop is to visit Chris' family in Denver. With Grandma turning 98 last week, we dare not head to the hills without saying hello! Alan tries to entice her with McDonald toys, but she is not necessarily impressed... patient, but not impressed.
We did not spend enough time in Denver to visit all our family there! Bob and Mar, Jen and Simon, we are truly sorry we did not see you and hope to see you soon!

And it's a good thing too, I was getting tired of "you're 40" jokes from a 39 year old! Welcome to the club! The children and I made sure to make him feel special with gifts, friends, family, fellowship and cake! We put together a little slideshow to remind him just how old he is getting! Love ya babe!
