Colorado Fun


We had such a great time in Colorado. I think we laughed the whole way through white water river rafting. The water was so cold that day, it had been snowing on the instructors that morning. They tried to talk us out of going, but we knew we wouldn't be back for awhile so we chanced it. It had warmed up a little by the time we got in and it was beautiful. My eldest daughter and husband got the brunt of the freezing water, but we were in wet suits, wool sweaters, parkas and water-proof booties, so it wasn't too bad. We went hiking through the mountains one day and my kids were goofing off (don't worry, she wasn't in danger of falling off). We visited a tearoom that's like a piece of the orient smack dab in the middle of Boulder. It was great to get away for a week with the family just to be outdoors and have fun. Have you been to Colorado?
