Last Days of Vacation!

Yesterday morning, Gran and Grandpa took Harris and Grace to the park near their home. They had a wonderful time, then came back and ran through the sprinklers and got soaking wet! This picture is of them in an enclosed slide.


In the afternoon, we took the Pikes Peak Cog Railway up to the summit of Pikes Peak. After an hour and twenty minute train ride we arrived at 14,110 feet. It was COLD at the summit! We even had a tiny bit of snow - in August!

Today we decided to have a relaxed, low-key day. The children had a bit of a rough day yesterday and we thought it was probably from being on the go so much!

So today the children worked with Gran and Grandpa to make a fairy house. Harris was thrilled to work with Grandpa with real tools (who better to teach him!) and Grace planned and assembled an veritable fairy estate!

Gran and Grace working in the garden on a fairy house. Grace specifically asked that I do a post on her fairy house so that will come in the future!

Right before dinner we went back over to the Garden of the Gods. Grace and Harris are working hard to hold up the Balancing Rock!
