Spring Break 2014

What a fun spring break this year! We traveled {by car, YIKES} to Durango, Colorado for a week o skiing, hiking and just a lot of outdoor fun. The kids did awesome skiing, even Libby, who, after spending a morning upset that she didnt know where me or Chris were, mastered her slopes and is excited to go again!

Trips to Mesa Verde and the Great Sand Dunes National Park also got us outside - for some challenging hikes and some exposure to the sandy beaches {sans water} at the Sand Dunes. I had never been to any of the places we went, so it was a lot of fun.

My favorite day was hiking Mesa Verde. A beautiful part of southern Colorado where ancient cliff dwellings are still visible today. We challenged the kids to a lengthy, challenging hike over steep rocky terrain, but they did great. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Now, we are back, the girls are with their friends and Chris and I are {trying} to recuperate! ;) 

Before we know it, these kids won't want to be with us for Spring Break. Trips with us will be replaced with trips with friends. They are getting old so quickly. We simply cherish the time we have with them and smile at their achievements - and there were a lot of them this week. I loved being with them!
