Last Friday our adventure began. Okay, most days of trying to get 5 of us out the door is an adventure, but this one was more ambisious than usual! My cousin Cassie was getting married-- in Colorado Springs-- and we were ALL going!
We woke up at 3am, dressed, ate a very quick breakfast, and were on the road by 4:15. We were so blessed to have my aunt Sharon and cousins Haley and Kelsey traveling with us. Their extra hands were priceless! The airport and plane ride were relatively uneventful (thank goodness!) and we were landing in Denver by 7:40 local time. We were then picked up by Scott, a close family friend, and continued to my aunt and uncle's home in Colorado Springs. We had lunch and visited until our rooms were ready at a local inn called The Hideaway. After some rest time, play time, (a trip to a local ice cream shop for Eli and Ruby) and settling in, we attended the rehearsal dinner. It turned into a very late night as the day ened in altitude sickness for me, bloody noses for both kids, throwing up by Eli, and plenty of grumpyness all around.
Saturday involved helping with some last minute wedding set up, playing on the on-grounds play set, a short hike, and a fishing trip for Eli, Ruby, and Jason with the groom's uncle. After some quick, post-fishing clean up, we emerged from our room. The photo above shows the Main crew in front of The Hideaway.
