So glad you had a wonderful time!


Looks like you had a great time! We went to Colorado on our honeymoon long ago and loved Etses park :)



NO STINKIN WAY!!!!! These are postcard picture Joanne. I wish I could just hop my kids on over there and let them soak all that in. Precious, precious times for you and your family. Thank you so much for sharing.

OH THE COLOR OF THE LEAVES!!!! Simply stunning. Looks like a wonderful weekend..



EP is my favorite place on earth! We were there last year the weekend before the Elk Festival and elk were *everywhere*. That's also when I saw my bear! :) Glad you enjoyed it!

My sister lived near Estes Park for awhile... in the days before digital cameras. I've heard her rave about the beauty there so it was fun to see your pictures. I can see why everyone loves it.

*Sigh!* What a picture perfect weekend in all aspects.


I love that picture of you! Your girls are so cute. I enjoyed the pictures!! I am with you on the pizza and caramel apples. Yum!
We are headed out to Olive Garden to celebrate (a few days early) my son's 20th birthday. :) Have a wonderful evening.


I love Estes Park. It is really sad that we live in Colorado and hardly ever take advantage of trips to the mountains. I went to Aspen last year to see the leaves turn...breathtaking!! And some people say that they've never seen a miracle or God's work!!


I have such great memories as a child and adult with my wee ones (before we moved here) of EP and the elk. Lurve EP. Just lurve.
