Colorado 2017- Day 2

We started the next day with donuts at the playground. It was nice to take our time and have a relaxing morning after such a busy day the day before. 
Breakfast at Clint’s- yum! 
After breakfast, the kids begged us to let them play in the river. It was so cold- I don’t know how they stood it! A couple of them were drenched from falling in but they loved it!
After lunch, Emily, Jon and I took all the kids (except Lily) on a hike up to a waterfall.
It ended up being a REALLY long hike- longer than we expected but the kids did great!  They were such troopers and hardly complained about being tired.
We finally made it to the top and were able to sit, have a snack, and enjoy God’s beauty for a while before we headed back down the mountain.
I'm so glad Lily decided to stay home.  She would not have made that long of a hike but she had a lot of fun shopping with Granna!
We treated the kids to ice cream after dinner for being such troopers on the hike.
It was another great day in Breckenridge! I am so thankful for this time away ever year with my family!

Colorado 2017- Day 1

We decided to go up to the Fun Park on our first day in Breckenridge. We thought it would be less crowded since it was in the middle of the week. 

It was a great day full of fun activities! I was so proud of Eden for trying all the activities this year- even the bungee trampoline.
The alpine slide is always a favorite!

We spent a lot of time at the tubing/zip line/obstacle course area.
The kids all loved the maze this year too!
Lunch on the mountain
After lunch the kids all split up and did different things. Some chose mini golf, some chose rock climbing, some rode the roller coaster, and some rode the alpine slide one more time.
After dinner, we took the kids swimming. Even thought the pool was heated, it was still chilly and they spent a lot of time going back and forth between the pool and hot tubs to warm up.
The kids were exhausted by the end of the day! It was a great first day in the mountains!
