A little more Colorado:)

 All the kids on our "long" hike day:)
 It's fun to stay at the YMCA...
 Our family at Emerald Lake... although Levi and Hope are hiding in the backpacks...

Crazy small world... Greg had this little hat on the top of the stick he was using to help him walk in the slippery snow.  When we arrived at the lake we had 2 separate groups of people ask if we were from Wisconsin because they had seen the packer hat.  One gal had honeymooned in the town that our church was at before we moved to the seminary.  And the other family was from the central part of the state.  There were maybe 4 groups of people up there with us and 2 of them had ties to Wisconsin... it was just sort of funny...  all the way out in Colorado:)
 My sweet friend Mary and I on our Mother's Day hike to Bible Point:)  The Lord has brought us through so much as friends, even in the last couple of years.  I am so thankful to have her love and support!   I don't think I know anyone who has the energy she does. Some of my favorite times were sitting on our front porch with a warm blanket, sipping some wine and talking...  God was so good to bring her and Chris into our lives about 17 years ago.   Love her!!!
Greg and some of the kids overlooking the YMCA of the Rockies grounds... What you can see is some of the Lodges and common buildings... The grounds are incredible!!  They have around 200  cabins that can be rented as well as at least 3 lodges, a gym, craft barn, cafeteria, welcome center... It was impressive to say the least... and gorgeous.  Part of the Y's grounds buts right up to Rocky Mountain National Park.  We would go back there in a heartbeat!
