Can you believe it? This is the first time the kids have ever seen snow! This was in the parking lot when we first got to Copper Mountain (hence the handicapped parking sign). I think they would have been happy if we just let them play in there the whole time. It would have been cheaper, too!
Bear was a trooper with her one arm. Yet another lesson I need to learn from my kids: Don't focus on what is not how I want it - just focus on the fun stuff! Kids sure do know how to enjoy life.
Colorado is such a great place to visit. It has so many beautiful areas to see. While we were there, we also visited Focus on the Family and played in their super-cool kids area. The kids loved all of the Adventures in Odyssey stuff. They have a recording studio set up where the kids can read scripts and record their own Adventures episode. Apparently, if you know what you are doing, you get your name on the list first thing in the morning in order to do this. (we didn't know what we were doing.) oh well.
We loved spending time with our family. The kids especially loved their cousin's service dog, Rudy. It is incredible the training these dogs have. Rudy even put a marker in his mouth and "signed" Bear's cast! The kids came home with some high expectations about tricks they thought they were going to teach our dogs. ha! That didn't last long.
Well, it's good to be home. It takes a while to get back into the groove of things, but we're getting there.
