Long Weekend

This is a long weekend for us. Our kids are out of school today (yesterday too!) and John took today off as well. In a little while, we're leaving for Estes Park--our favorite spot in Colorado. John rented a cabin for us and we're going to try to see some elk and golden aspens in Rocky Mountain National Park. Maybe some bighorn sheep and a moose or two (I'm praying!). That would be icing on the cake for me!

John's parents are meeting us in Estes Park. They're heading to Colorado for some vacation time, and we're thrilled to get to spend some time with them and show them the place we love so much.

So...I've got to run and finish packing. I gave the kids a list and let them pack themselves (why I didn't think of this time-saving step before now is beyond me) but I need to double check and make sure they've got fleece and socks and clean underwear.

I'll be back on Sunday or Monday with pictures!

Have a great weekend.

Oh wow, that sounds incredible! Have a great time with your family and in-laws, and I hope you get to see all you hope. And take photos too, so we can see also!

Have a safe trip :)
