Colorful Colorado

The trip was a success right from the start after all eight of us were able to fly standby to Albuquerque.  This little get together consisted of my parents, brother and sister in law, their precious kiddos, and my sweet grandparents.  I selfishly must add that I love flying only a 1/3 across the country instead of the usual all-day adventure to meet our family in TX and/or TN.  

First stop - grab the rental car & meet my parents at the Camelrock Casino
Second stop - Echo Canyon


Third stop - Trader Joes for lots of must-have goodies
Fourth stop - FINALLY the cabin and look what we find right in the yard!

Gracelynn Gayle is beyond giggly over seeing Uncle Gabe

Of course, we enjoyed every single second with our niece and nephew

Classic :)

Three Lugar generations - Pa, Jordan, Griffin

Ninnie and Griffin at the Pagosa Library

One of my favorite memories in town -- The Malt Shoppe

Griffin is alllllllll boy, which consists of doing anything outside

My favorite guy

Gotta love vacation with no agenda, internet, and cell service
