Summer in Colorado

summers in Colorado are 1 million times better than the winters. we wanted to move to Colorado after years of visiting, always in the winter. we love skiing! But we LOVE this even better…

Amazing Meadow!

Dawson Butte is a lil gem we came upon after looking online.  it’s north of Monument, but only about a twenty minute drive.  it was beautiful.  this will be a place we revisit.

One of the many pit stops

One of the many pit stops

some details you won’t see in the pics:

i talked ryan into going the full 5.2 miles (what’s 5.2 measly miles).  it was a bad idea.  we stopped a lot. that’s what a 2 y.o. does.  it took us about 2 hours and 20 minutes.  it was hot (81).  2 y.o. doesn’t like to be tired and hot.  we applied sunscreen three times.  my shoulders look like cooked lobster.  2 y.o. has a nice tan (thank God).  there were tears.  some cursing. and lots of praying.  the last two things were inter-mingled.  God understands rookie parent mistakes right?  once we made it home, we watched Tangled and turned on the AC.

gotta hit the aloe hard. ouchie.
