Vacation....half over :(

Well hello there :) I have been MIA kinda...I've been on vacation since 4am Wednesday morning!
We flew outta KC at 7am and got to Colorado and drove straight up to Estes Park. We had the cutest cabin with a private hot tub so the kids loved it. We wandered around town Wednesday and then ordered a pizza and vegged that night. We were pooped! We saw deer right outside our cabin!





Thursday we got up and went to The Stanley Hotel . For those that don't know, that is where the movie The Shining was based upon, they even have ghost tours!! After that we spent most of the day driving through the Rocky Mountain National Park. We drove the entire way through on Trail Ridge Road to Grand Lake where we stopped and ate lunch. We saw tons of elk along the way as well. That night we just vegged again in the hot tub.



Today we got up, wandered the town again, had an old time photograph taken (where you dress up in the old clothes and look tough), then headed to our next hotel which is closer to my brother. We went to their house and hung out for awhile before heading to dinner. Then my brother, sister in law and nephew came back to our hotel and swam. We are all so tired LOL

Tomorrow we are going to my nephews soccer game then hit The Boondocks. Overall we are having a great time :) I'll post more pictures on Sunday when I return and go through all of them, I've taken a ton!!

Seems like you're having a lovely trip. Vacations are great while you're there, but there's a price to pay when you get home.

I'll pray that your Monday won't be too stressful!
