***After a few glorious days at the Grand Canyon we traveled on to Utah to spend some time enjoying Zion and Arches National Parks. (Wished we'd had longer stays in both!) By the end of the week we were in Colorado, having a wonderful visit with my Rimel family in and around Vail.***
Elise: Love the enthusiasm! She's such a trooper when it comes to hiking, climbing, and exploring! (Balancing Rock, Arches)
Caleb: Oh, to ride a bike again! During our visit to Colorado we got to be a part of a special day for my Uncle Lee when the town of Avon dedicated a trail (Lee's Way) that he helped to develop in the Vail Valley. My cousins were kind enough to bring enough bikes along for all our kids. We basically had to drag Caleb off the bike at the end of the day.
Lucas: FOUR!!! So special to celebrate the birthday of our sweet, silly, monkey of a boy that we love so very much! We partied in style with our Colorado cousins...and it even snowed!!! What a day!
Eden: While the rest of us were busy unpacking the car, this little lady helped herself to my diaper bag and got all dolled up. She was so proud!
And just because I rarely get to be in a picture with all four kiddos:
