Trip to the Mountains - Part 1

Our recent family trip to Colorado was so much fun. I am doing this blog as a journal for my girls later on. So I am going to try to recount as much as I can so that we can remember.

Monday,June 8th - We woke up around 4:30 am to drive to DFW airport for our flight to Denver. The girls were very anxious and excited to get going on our vacation. We had a decent flight into Denver and quickly got our rental Suburban (thanks for the super nice upgrade Geoff).

The girls waiting to load up for our drive into the Mountains.

We stopped in Idaho Springs to pan for some gems.

We went to Tommy Knocker's Brewery for lunch. That's root beer guys!

We continued our trek through the mountains. They would get very excited if they spotted a snow on the peaks in the distance. We drove to Vail - where we stayed through Wednesday....more to come!
