Reed had a 3 day weekend, so Aaron took a day off and we snuck off for a quick trip to Colorado.
We spent Friday in Denver.
We went to Dinosaur Ridge, where you can see some fossilized footprints.
Saturday, our friends took us to their favorite places. We didn’t really “know” these friends before this trip. Our family’s adoption stories are woven together and we have a mutual friend. After countless emails over the last year, it was great to finally get to know them in person.
The kids had so much fun together. The oldest 2 are just a few weeks apart and they really seemed to enjoy each other’s company.
Yesterday, we headed up to Pikes Peak before we went home. You can drive all the way to the top on a slightly intimidating road.
It was the perfect day. Even at the summit, it was in the high 30s. It turned out to be a bit of an adventure. Someone in our family did NOT enjoy the high altitude or the temperature.
