imageimageimageSounds like a new Magic Treehouse book, doesn’t it? Sunday was National Trails Day and the town had a couple of great programs at the local trailhead. The first was all about local raptors ( sorry no pictures) and the second and favorite was on snakes. The kids could not get enough of these guys.  They were all corn snakes.

We were fortunate to be able to kick off our summer vacation with two nights of camping in Great Sand Dunes National Park.  It was our first multiple night camping trip and the first time we’ve ventured more than about an hour and a half away. It was amazing!  I don’t think I can fully articulate how majestic the dunes are in front of a Rocky Mountain backdrop.  This is the perfect time of year for playing in Medano Creek,  a stream created from the snowmelt. The kids even tried some sand dune sledding. We all had a great time and can’t wait to find our next campsite!

The Little Lady and I headed down to Castle Rock for a mommy/daughter sleepover with some amazing friends. It was great to have our special visitors from Tacoma and see these five back together.

Riley loves to diaper Vanilla Bean (the bear) however has been struggling with the newborn diapers.

Fingers crossed it will be easier to diaper ‘nilly bean:)

After all the excitement of yesterday,  we were planning on a morning at the Botanic Gardens with friends today.  I can’t even begin to describe how much fun it is to have all of these girls together or how difficult it is to get a picture 🙂  We strolled through the main garden before heading over to the Children’s garden for some running and water play.  Bridges are tons of fun, as is the stream and after getting properly wet Riley loves to be ‘wrapped’ up.

We kept thinking it was awfully hot,  no wonder…check out the temperature. 

Turns out all that heat and fun was so invigorating Riley didn’t want to nap but was in a great mood so she helped Keith and I pick out new shoes and we even ventured out to an early dinner.  Here she is trying on my old shoes and enjoying her first steamed mussels.  That’s my girl!!
