Also in Colorado

A few snippets from our Colorado trip:
Oh, Wyoming.
It's not a road trip until Jake throws up. Luckily, he recovers quickly. :)
Sweetest little girl.
Those cheeks! I die.
Jake was happy to sleep next to Mickey and Minnie's house.
Summer was into all of Tasha's little princess toys
Gorgeous Saturday run
Welcoming me back from my run
Running back from the park
Planes 2! Jake brought his Dusty and was super excited, and Summer danced during all the background music.
We tried to bribe the children to go to sleep by letting them watch Frozen in bed.
Summer was not cooperating with the princess in pj's photoshoot
Tasha's pretty Elsa braid
Hall church, of course.
Playtime with Tasha
Men in the kitchen :)

Garden of the Gods

Colorado Springs will always be one of our happy places, and it's even happier with family! We took a quick trip out to the Springs for our dear friend's retirement ceremony, and got to squeeze in some quality family time while we were at it. We stayed at my sister's house with our brother-in-law Alex and niece Tasha (April is mobilized with the Army right now) and had a party. My other sister Nicole, her husband Jordan, and her baby Clara flew in for the retirement ceremony as well, so we met up for some play time. We figured Garden of the Gods would be the perfect place to just let the babies roam, and it was! Such a beautiful place.

Ensign Peak

Matt had to work on Pioneer Day, but we still wanted to commemorate ... so we figured, what better way than a hike up Ensign Peak? (We've already done Immigration Canyon on July 24th, so mixing it up seemed like a good idea.) The pioneers stood at the top of Ensign Peak to map out their plans for the valley, and it was cool to think of that as we looked down on the reality of those dreams 150+ years later. The Salt Lake Valley is really so beautiful!

Summer selected Ammie to carry her along the hike, and Jake was a trooper and climbed the whole way by himself! He was like, "Okay! Hike to the top!" He has Graf blood in him for sure. We caught a pretty sunset on the way down, and then watched a million fireworks shows from our house. It was a great little way to spend the holiday.
