Visiting Colorado

My Sister-In-Law Kayla, her son Bowen, Eli, and I took a road trip to Colorado. The Drive was exhausting with 2 one-year-olds in the back seat. Bowen did awesome but Eli...not so much. Here is a big Photo Dump with a few captions:

This is on the drive back via I-70. The most beautiful place in the world.

Vail, CO was the most beautiful in my opionion. I didn't get a picture of it, so here is one from the internet.

OK, REWIND. Sorry I got ahead of myself. Lets start from the drive there and not the drive back. ha ha. 

This whole photo session is in Denver, CO. We went to the Aquarium and had lunch there. Kayla and Bowen stayed there with all the fishies while Eli and I went to the Childrens Museum.

Why is it sideways?

This area was researved for 3 and Under. It was perfect. 

Eli could have played with this Dryer All day. I had to pry him off. I didn't want to pay all that money just so he could play with a simple dryer.

When we got into Pueblo, CO we stayed with my mom and Sdad. It was a wonderful visit. They spoiled the boys with a lot of brand new toys! They had a blast. They loved all the stairs all over my moms house too. I hadn't been home for 5 years. It was good to be back.

Our first day in Pueblo we went to the zoo. I was impressed, it was very clean. I was surprised that there was no tiger though.

This is how much Eli enjoyed the zoo. Once he did wake up all he wanted to do is play with sticks and leaves. Ug. :)

My Mom and Eli

This is the craziest dog. It had the longest legs! It was Kayla's favorite.

He was looking right at me. Creepy!

Eli is obsessed with hoses, and that is an understatement. Hoses from the Zoo are no exception.

These pictures are at my parents home and at the waterpark in Pueblo.


Fun with Grandpa Dane

They LOVED Molly's bed. It was the perfect size for them.

This is at Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. It's one of my favorite places. Rocks. I love Rocks.

One the way home (if you remember we went through Vail and all the beautiful places.  We also stopped in SLC for a second to let the boys unwind at City Creek Mall.

The trip was wonderful. It was great to see my folks. I am so glad Kayla came, it was so much fun. Oh, and I forgot to tell you about Eli on our way there...So we got a hotel. We checked in around 10:30. Eli SCREAMED until 2:40am. Yeah, we could have drove that whole time. No fun people. No fun. But, the trip was worth it.


  1. I love those animal photos- especially the peacock ones! Looks like a good trip.

  2. It was so good to have you here. Thanks Kayla and Bowen for coming with Dayna and Eli. I had so much fun, too.
