Nearing the end.



We're nearing the end of the Colorado vacation pictures, I promise.
One of my favorite things about the cabin is that although it's just a house, everything is different there.

We have special breakfasts there.
The Man and kids eat raisin toast. I have a chocolate slimfast shake mixed with coffee, poured over ice.
We could easily do them at home, but they are reserved for the cabin.
Oh, and hot dogs. Lots of hot dogs. Not for breakfast, though.



The Baby said, "Triangle"!!! He was very excited to spot this dog house.
Thank you Noggin.

This wallpaper is in the cabin. Isn't it cool?
I love that it's so old, but this style has come back. I could see this on a fabric in a quilt shop right now.


Kissin' Camels at Garden of The Gods.




The Baby lined up all the chairs on the porch. He declared it "Awesome."


Bear territory.




Next summer, you're all invited to go with us okay?
I'm hooked on vacation so I'm adding this to the Hooked On party.

I have read your blog for awhile and am finally making a comment. I have linked here from The Macs blog that we have followed since we heard Cora's story in Church the week before she passed away. Your Colorado cabin looks like a similar experience to our recent trip to Northern Minnesota. You can check out our trip on our blog at www.cmjcbaldwin.wordpress.com.
enjoy your last few days.

Colorado - we took many trips there when I was a kid. My step-brother was in the Air Force Academy there in Colorado Springs. I have fond memories of our travels there as a family. Great times! (With the exception of driving pikes peak) Ha ha!

Great shots girl. I especially love the angle of the one you took looking up at the tree from the bottom. So cool!

And yes, your blog page loaded this time. It might have just been on my end. Who knows???

Hugs, Angie

What a DARLING family you have - (even that one who uses the vents for OTHER purposes - lol - do you know what fun I've had sharing THAT boy story?!) and I'm wild over that straight-up-the-tree picture. So glad you had a great time. :)

rad photos--can't wait for our CO excursion next week!

Rebekah said...

Wow - such beautiful pictures, Beki! Great job! I can really feel the beauty.

Oh, and I'm soooo envious of that 65 degree thermometer reading - we haven't been that cool since May and probably won't see it again until October!
