We drove down into the Front Range area of Rampart Road.
The mountains are just too gorgeous!
We did a bit of off-roading on a dirt road- and even saw a few wild big horned sheep.
Almost every night, Harbor rode back to the base with my parents for a sleepover at the Officer's Lodge. I don't think he wanted to ever come back home.
They had The Egg and I for breakfast several times, and he even went early morning shopping with them and picked out a few things for him and the other two kiddos.
My parents kept all three kids late one night and we went out on a much needed date.
Our first date since Christmas!
We saw the newest Jurassic movie and ate at a quaint steak house overlooking the city.
We spent two different nights walking a local bike path with the stroller.
The kids always enjoy the simple activity of just being outside.
Harbor recently used some extra money to buy a scooter, but tired of using it and David ended up riding it the entire path.
While David worked, we drove down to the Paint Mines.
The kids slipped and slid down the gravel shortcut we took to the mines, and we had to hold them and carry them, but we all made it safely down.
The boys love to collect rocks and explore.
I do, too.
The mines are one of my favorite places.
It isn't common anymore to visit a place and feel small.
The mines are millions of years old and just a great place to ponder and reflect life.
After all the work to get to the bottom, the skies turned gray.
Storm clouds rolled in and we high tailed it out of there.
It was a quick, but enjoyable visit.
We hiked and waded in a few waterfall areas.
And jogged with the double stroller.
After my parents went back South, we took the kids to the park on the bikes.
We have officially made cookies for the first time in the apartment.
Which is pretty much a rite of passage for our family.
and Harbor has scored a new lunchbox for 1st grade!
