Rocky Mountain

We went on vacation last week, to Colorado. We had some good times! One day, we went hiking at Rocky Mountain Park. It was lovely. The weather was perfect, and the aspen trees had turned golden. First we hiked up to Nymph Lake. Gillian got a little close - into the swampy edge...

We took a break to eat the lunch that Scott had packed for us. Although it looks like I am feeding him a Hershey's bar, Peyton is actually eating a skinned grape here.


This is Bear Lake. When we were walking & this came into view, Gillian ran up to lake, exclaiming "Bow!! Bow!!" That's the way she says "wow"...

We saw many squirrels & chipmunks. And, we saw a large herd of Elk, with a 5-pointer daddy!

How beautiful! No wonder Gillian was shouting "bow"! :) This inspires me to do more hiking and camping once the baby gets a little bigger.
