One of the first things we did, and one of the top things on the list that the boys wanted to do, was to go up to Mile High Stadium. Here are some pictures of all that excitement!

One of the big draws to Mile High Stadium was going to the team store and taking advantage of the player's discount. They kids had a blast looking at all the fabulous Bronco products and dreaming off all the things they wanted to spend money on, and lamenting that I wasn't willing to spend.
Another thing we did at Mile High was to go and visit the Colorado Sports Museum that was at the Stadium. There was a little area that had lots of sports uniforms that the kids could try on. They had lots of fun with that too.

L, football or cheerleader?

L, Cheerleading it is, I guess.
L: On second thought, maybe it is football after all!

Ty, these are some sort of football pants/pads
We spent a day up at Estes Park. It is a beautiful little town about 1 hour north of Boulder. There was tons of snow which the kids were thrilled about, but we were less than prepared. I had actually brought 2 sets of clothes so that we could go sledding, after we had a chance to walk around the town and the kids could have some dry clothes to go home in. Well, as soon as we parked and they saw the snow, they were diving in, with their canvas shoes and everything. I especially kept telling L to stay out of the snow because she would get her shoes wet and her feet would freeze. I turned out for a little bit and then gave my attention back to her, only to see how she had rectified the situation. She had taken off her shoes so she could then run around in the knee deep snow in her socks. Hmmm... I wasn't too surprised when she started complaining about how cold her feet were a little while later. Still, they had a great time!

After walking around the town and looking at the shops, we found a nice hill to take the kids sledding on. It took a little effort, and I'm pretty sure it was private property that we weren't allowed on, but that's ok. No one got arrested and it was a wonderful sledding hill. Everyone had a blast.

Despite what it looks like, Gun was having fun, but here he is at the end of his rope for the day with Spencer.
As we were leaving, we had to stop for a herd of Elk. they were everywhere and were in no hurry to get out of the way of cars.
On our last night, all the kids were just laying around watching TV.
I especially liked seeing Gun and D cuddled up together. My boys really had so much fun with their little boy cousins. As much as they love their baby sisters, they do love having little boys around.

The funniest thing about this picture to me is that these little girls are only 3 1/2 months apart!
About the only picture that proves that I went on the trip too. Here I am with my baby girl and my beautiful little sister. Not the clearest picture, but that's ok.
Thanks, Annie and Spencer for such a fun trip! Hope we can do it again soon! We love you guys!
