On the train
First Day

Glenwood Springs

Colorado Trip 2010 206 
We stayed here.  The first time I was here, something like twelve or thirteen year ago, my husband and I were just engaged.  Now, here we are with our three kids.  It was amazing.  Just as I remembered it.  My little bird swam and swam and swam.  It was all I could do to get her to take a break and have some ice cream.  She very nicely played some cards with the peach.

That's the little bird there in the middle with her Grandma in blue.  I think she swam something like eight hours that day.

Great grandma lounged.  Doesn't she look great?  I hope I can be like her when I'm in my eighties.  She went everywhere and did everything.  It was so great to see her.

After eight hours in the water and allowing her to apply her own sunscreen (mistake!) ("Mom! I'm not a baby!") She got her first sunburn.Colorado Trip 2010 228
Our last dinner in Glenwood Springs.

We'll miss you, but we'll be back.  My little bird says, "So, when I get my driver's license then I can just drive out here myself."  Yeah, I don't think so.  Nice try.

The pool tired everyone out, but especially sweet Pippa.  She was a trooper, though, and was in a great mood most of the trip.Colorado Trip 2010 242 Colorado Trip 2010 241

Waiting for the train to start us on our journey home.  Do the girls look like they're tired of waiting?  All in all. . . a trip for the memory book.  I felt so lucky to have such a beautiful family.  Now. . . the first day of school preparations must commence.
