Colorado






After Texas we headed north passing through beautiful Oklahoma, then Kansas, and onto lovely Colorado.  While there we stopped at Jake's mom and dad's home.  John and Teresa took the kids fishing to their new camp site.  The kids had a blast and I think Grandpa did too!  Grandma took the littles to the snack shop and bought them M&M's.  They were beginning to become a bit irritated with the heat of the day, so Grandma knew what to do..  Note the beautiful mountains in the background.  Each of the kids caught 2 fish.  Libby was a bit freaked out by her catch and really had a fit when Ben's fish slipped from his grasp and slapped her on the leg when it fell.  The poor little thing had fish guts and blood on the back of her leg.  You can imagine her lengthy response.  The rest of the kids had a great time.  Thank you Grandpa and Grandma for treating them!

Notice how clean Jackie's fish is compared to Ben's...

What great travels! I love Colorado..so much beauty and fresh air. Was this the kids' first fishing experience? How neat that they all caught 2 fish. :) And I love that Ben and his grandpa both have matching hats.
