Vacation - Days 1 and 2

We are here in the Centennial state and having a great time! I wasn't going to post while we were away but after realizing we have already taken a ridiculous number of pictures, I thought it would be easier to do as we go instead of in a big lump at the end.

The children did really well on the trip to Colorado. It was a long day of travel but they were troopers!

This is right after we arrived in Denver. The Denver airport is my favorite airport because of the tent-like roof that look like snow-covered mountains. It's just so clever! Once we got to Colorado Springs, the children played in Gran and Granpa's garden and had a grand time. We even got to sit around a fire on the patio, it was quite chilly!

On our first full day in Colorado we did a bit of spelunking! We went on a tour of the Cave of the Winds and it was awe inspiring. First, it's hard to believe that all of that is sitting underground and second that it was discovered and we were walking through it. While we waited for our tour to start we had this gorgeous view of the mountains. We were pretty high up and Grace said it made her stomach hurt to look down!

Entering the caves!

This evening we went on a hiking/climbing adventure in The Garden of the Gods. This park is absolutely stunning and an amazing view is to be had everywhere you look. Grace and Harris loved it and we even spotted wildlife!

Super Bryce!!!
