Colorado

This is what we had to look at each night on the porch.

Isaac had been begging to go fishing since the first morning. I had promised to pay him $5 if he caught me a salmon. I got to keep my $5, but I also never got a salmon steak.


The view of the house from halfway up the driveway. That steep driveway puts the fear of God in me. Kyle actually made me drive the blue behemoth up it once. Isn't he mean? I can do anything now though. lol Thanks for the confidence boost, honey.



Our favorite toy- the Polaris. That little thing can drive over anything. And Kyle really likes to test that out. We were all screaming, holding on for dear life, and begging for more.




The mountains were beautiful and the weather was wonderful, but I'm grateful we won't be making that drive again any time soon.

Ginger,
This place looks so much fun! Is it your house, or a vacation spot? Did you guys rent it? If so, could you pass on the info?

Thanks Tracy! Daniel only owns jeans w/o holes for a very short time. That was quite a lesson for me in having sons!

Chris,

It's Kyle's parents' house.
