What we've been up to...

We have been having tons of fun in Colorado. Here are some of the things that have kept us busy...

Air Force football (and of course watching USC Gamecocks on TV)

Lots of hiking. This is North Cheyenne Park

I have been having fun with some DIY projects. I made a keys/scarf/coat hanger out of an old window...

I made a fall wreath for our front door

Monument Park

Climbing to the top

Ben wasn't ready for the timer...

Rocky Mountain National Park

Ben and I decided to take a day trip to Rocky Mountain National Park a couple of weeks ago. It did not disappoint. It was totally gorgeous, and there was so much to do. It is so amazing to see God’s creativity. We were able to see lots of wildlife, and this is a picture of Ben with a elk in the background.

We hiked almost 10 miles! This is the first "lake" that we hiked to. It was so pretty with the lily pads.

Another beautiful lake. The water was so clear, you could see tons of trout swimming around. It motivated Ben to start fishing.
