Our Colorado Trip–Beautiful Places

Summer has been so full! The kids and I spent most of last week on my family’s farm and I didn’t get any more of my Colorado pictures posted. I’ll do a little catching up now  🙂

We spent one morning at The Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. Here’s a family picture in front of the kissing camels. (See them?)

Another family shot. Hard to take a bad picture in this place!

Later that day, Dan and Kelly took us to the old Phoenix gold mine in Idaho Springs, where we had a one-of-a-kind tour.

The kids’ favorite part was feeding these friendly {and rather chubby} little guys.

After the mine tour, we headed up the hill for a once again, one-of-a-kind, gold panning lesson.

Beautiful country! I’ll end with that for today  🙂
