Pa In Colorado!

Pa had a business trip in Copper Mountain last week, so he extended his stay to come see us. We took a trip into the mountains on Saturday. Went up to Winter Park. Carter was dying for a snowball fight.

There is no real way to describe the beauty of Colorado. A day has not gone by that Blake and I don't say, "I can't believe we live here." We've skied several times in the years past and have always loved the mountains, but those visits were always short and then we'd head back home. Now, this is our home and we couldn't be happier about it.

At our first stop.

The Continental Divide.

The trail leading to the divide. Several snowboards and skiers (much more serious than us) headed up this mountain on foot to turn around and go back down it. Crazy!

Pa and Jack.

4 Starnes boys.

Carter could barely contain himself with all the snow!

Cutie Blake. He didn't know I took this one!

One more of the fam.

Please tell Jack and Carter that I have a matching red hoodie, too!

Also, Grandmudder has given me a few special treats for the boys.

See you tomorrow!!!

Welcome to Colorado. It's funny, because you have roots here. If your Grandmother would'nt have gotten married and move to Texas....Well I guess if she wouldn't have gotten married, you wouldn't be here either! Anyway, let me know when your free to meet you cousins!
