I have such a hard time saying goodbye to vacations, specially when we had so much fun and saw so much beauty around us. In fact, there’s a huge suitcase sitting in my kitchen right now waiting to be unpacked and I’m hesitant to unpack it because it just means that it’s really over. ugh! I guess all good things must come to and end.
For sure, visiting Colorado with our kids, has been one of the coolest things we’ve done as a family and it was completely worth driving eight hours to get there.
We went on a couple of hikes in Vail and during our first hike, we got a chance to see SNOW on the side of the mountain. It was really cool to experience snow in June. So much so, that we stopped the car and Alex and the kids had themselves a little snowball fight. The kids loved seeing and playing in the snow without tons of layers on and I loved not having to worry about them getting sick.
These pictures are from our drive to Upper Piney River Falls Trail. The trail turned out to be closed at the time, but the drive there was beautiful and completely worth it. If you follow along on Instagram, I’m sure you caught the stories of our drive. It was breathtaking.
Coming from Florida, where we don’t see seasons, seeing snow on the side of the mountain in the middle of June threw us for a loop. It was a little bit of an oxymoron considering the weather was incredible! Regardless, the kids climbed on the snow, Alex threw snowballs around and it was so fun for all of us.
I’ll share a bit more in the coming weeks about our trails, views, and a few tips and tricks on traveling and trailing with little ones.
I love this picture so much! Grace’s face and excitement and Haddon’s sweet smile. These kids are such troopers and so much fun to be around.
