Pagosa Springs, Colorado

We just returned from THE FUNNEST trip to Pagosa with my brother and sisters and their families! It took me a couple of days to actually appreciate being home -- I just wanted to be with everyone in such a beautiful, fun, no-cares environment forever! I am copying Sheree's highlights of the trip because she did such a great job of remembering everything! Thanks Sheree! My new banner photo on my blog is one of my favorite views in Pagosa. Someday I'll actually get a family photo with that gorgeous background! For now the memories suffice!

Highlights of the trip:

Sitting around the campfire every night
Riding in the Jeep Willy--No seatbelts even, the kids loved it.
Hiking to Box Canyon and swimming in the river
Reading on the porch
Good music
Hiking to Williams Falls--beautiful!
Lots of games of Hearts, War, and B.S.
"I Like Big Butts!"
The little boys and all of their antics
French braids
Tie Dying shirts for all the kids
Putting together a little duathlon
Riding the four wheelers
Painting rocks
Beautiful runs and lots of excercise
Afternoon rainstorms
The kids Magic Show
Lots of bug spray
Kids playing Haunted Mansion and Carnival
Great food
Building a trap and catching a chipmunk
"Take me to the River, Throw me in the water!"
Arm Wrestling--Bekah rocks!
Going to the General Store in the Jeep
Oh and the memorable Mtn Biking adventure!
