Some family time:)

 G and I in Rocky Mountain National Park
 Some elk that came to join me for the sunrise one morning:)
 Mother's day on Bible Point
 Our last half hour of driving was in the snow... Here the kids are after finally arriving at the YMCA of the Rockies...
 Taking a little break from the hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park.
The whole crew, minus Mrs. Stockton...

We are totally enjoying a little family and friend time in the Rockies... We are staying at the YMCA of the Rockies and it is unbelievable... The perfect place for us to vacation.  

Our sweet friends, the Stocktons, asked us if we could try to get this vacation on the calendar.  We had been talking about going to Colorado for years... We finally made it happen... Well really God made it happen.  

We had snow and rain the first few days, but the last couple of days have been beautiful.  The grounds of the Y back up to Rocky Mountain National Park. Today we took the kids on a 5+ mile hike.  It was gorgeous!  Even Hope made it almost all the way to the top.  G had to carry her just the last little bit.  We hiked a fair amount on snow, which really made it a lot harder hiking.  But it was worth it after we finally got up to Emerald Lake.  MAJESTIC, is all I can say.  

I will try to post more pics and more details in the days to come.

Glad to hear you are enjoying some much deserved family and friend time:). In that second picture from the last with the three of your kids--Caleb looks so much older and grown up! Where has the time gone??? God's blessings and safe travels!

The kids agreed that Caleb looked really big, he's growing older Sara! Glad you had a fun time. Love the couple photo, precious couple, looking great! Makes me miss our time stationed in Wyoming! Love it!

Hi Sara! What a great time it looks like you had! I LOVE RMNP. Erik and I went there a few years ago for an anniversary/birthday getaway and had such a good time hiking and staying nearby in Estes Park. I'll have to check out the Y camp sometime.

Praying for you today,
