We arrived in the Springs around 6:00 mountain time last night. There was a threat of rain most of the trip. Western Kansas was beautiful drive as wheat harvest was in full swing. We could see the dust from the combines at great distances. I will post pictures later.
Interstate 70 is definitely a funnel into Colorado. We spotted tags from 23 states and one custom wheat harvesting group from Canada.
We are leaving for Breckenridge soon. I will post pictures & details later.

The grandboys and their parents rode the ski lift up and then came down the run on little scooters. It was a highlight for all.Posted by Picasa

It looks like it will be a hike this morning, then back to Breckenridge for the 4th parade at ll:00. There are so many things to do, I don't think anyone will be bored today! Pictures this evening.

We did not make it to the Wheeler Trail Jct but the trail followed a beautiful mountain stream that the grandboys could play in. They had a good time. There is a waterfall at the end of this trail that I will have to check out another time.Posted by Picasa
It was a very beautiful trailPosted by Picasa
Bacon, eggs & pancakes compliments of chef Doug. The kids are super excited and were ready to go swimming at 7:00am.
We returned to the Springs (I should say Monument as that is Colorado Family's new address) around noon. We didn't do much this afternoon. After dinner on the deck, we decided to get a little ice cream at Palmer Lake. It was enjoyed by all.Posted by Picasa
The sunset was beautiful over the mountains.Posted by PicasaWe are back from Breckenridge and enjoying just hanging out. I wanted to take Trent to a playground so Doug suggested we ride bikes. He told me there might be a couple hills but nothing I couldn't handle. They were mountains to an out-of-shape flatlander. Here I am after returning, legs hardly holding me up. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of Doug, pulling Trent in a bike trailer hardly breathing hard. Left for home July 6thSee Goodland to home post
