Though we were a busy bunch while enjoying our trip together, the four of us took plenty of breaks at the house to give those toddler brains some down time from all the stimulation found when encountering new things. Plus, it allowed the adults time to relax!
We started one morning with our standard trip to the Hungry Bear in Woodland Park (soooo glad this place wasn’t disturbed by the fire!):
Here’s my sweet B at Hungry Bear from Christmas 2010…how has she grown so fast!?!
Here are a few pics from us chillin’:
Such great sharers! And I’m not going on a trip without this drawing board. It was a huge hit, though its rarely touched at our house. I’m not asking questions!
Bridget and Daddy taking a short hike up the hill in the backyard. (she’s showing you her scat tracking skills in the second pic)
We all drove to the end of our street in order to take a little hike and explore the outdoors. Some cute Daddy/daughter moments!
Since there were little legs with us, we made it to the bend in the path before turning around and heading back. *WILDFIRE NOTE* Right around this bend (just behind the McCauleys in this pic) is a small valley filled with trees and brush. The Waldo Canyon wildfire extended as far as the crest of THIS VALLEY. If it had reached a few more feet, it likely would have washed through the valley in moments and then taken over our neighborhood. We are so blessed to say that the fire has been contained and the warnings completely lifted. What an amazing ordeal!
Loved all the wildflowers!
Adorable cuties finding fun wherever they go!
Up next…Abby’s first trip to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo!!!!!
