Colorado Vacation Part I

We have returned from a week in Colorado. It was amazing!  First of all, when we left home it was 107 degrees.  When we arrived in Fun Valley the next morning it was in the upper 40s.  Heaven!  There was hiking, paddle boats, miniature golf, arcades, fishing, bike riding, tubing and excursions into Creede and Pagosa Springs, family time and  new friends made.  The weather was fabulous...a couple of showers but much drier and a little warmer than last year. Please don't even get me started on the food! 
Here is a small section of the Rio Grand River behind our cabin...

Sydney fell into the freezing cold river within 30 minutes of arriving and she wasn't too happy, but by the end of the week she and her dad were tubing with the trout down the same river.  I got some awesome pics of them and our neighbors from the bridge but they apparently got deleted from the camera...

Later, Sydney and I went on a hike on the mountain behind our cabin. 

These little guys watched our every move in hopes of us dropping a crumb...they especially like graham cracker crumbs left over  from our nightly campfires and smores. 

Sydney spending some alone time on the river

Sydney and I took a day trip to Creede for shoping, food and chipmunks! We at lunch at the Old Miners Saloon where they have the best pizza on is called the Miner's Meat Pie...add a coke and a little Bad Company playing in the background and you have yourself an awesome lunch! We walked the entire lenght of Creede and went into everyshop. It was a fun mother daughter day! Sydney's favorite thing is feeding these little guys outside the mining museum. 

Tomorrow I will show you Sydney's awesome fishing adventure!


  1. I love, love, love Colorado. Looks like fun!

  2. I'm so jealous!!! Did y'all do the springs in Pagosa Springs? Can't wait to hear more.
