A week with auntie B!

yesterday, we went back to denver to drop auntie bec off at the airport.  we had such a fun week
with her. so glad she could get away for a week and spend it with us! 

here’s some of the highlights from the past week…

{already wore her out after the first day… or maybe it’s because of the late night and early morning :-)}

little M really wanted auntie bec to experience the “guhn-dula”… one of his favorites here in breck

auntie bec was very sweet to hang out with little M so chris and I could venture out on our own for a bit. 

we haven’t been on a bike ride together {just the 2 of us} for
over 2 years… almost a 50 mile ride that day!

and we took a few trips… the first was a day hike up the mohawk lakes trail.
{abbey was just relieved that she got to go too.}

a beautiful hike!… gorgeous views, and not too strenuous…

except for maybe the 30 minutes that little M decided to scream and wail as we went back down the mountain crying  “go back up, go back up…” {i’m sure all of you parents with toddlers can relate to the inevitable breakdown after telling your child “no, i’m sorry, you can’t have that” or “no, we have to go now”. i think we were quite successful in making the entire mountainside aware of our presence. :-/ }

the next day we went on a bike ride through the glenwood springs canyon…
{little M’s second official bike ride}

it was a fun time, but the views were not as exciting as we anticipated.
better to drive through the canyon than bike it. 😉

the next day we decided to go the non-physically exerting route and drive to leadville to check out their local fish hatchery {second oldest one in the nation} and sample a few chocolate chip cookies.

downtown leadville was celebrating their annual “boom days.” and we thought quite a coincidence to be there at that time since little M has been in to “booming” things with his buddy C-man lately.
