So we just got back from back to back vacations with each family! With pat's family we got to go down to Gunnison, Colorado. It was a blast. It was the best "camping" i've ever done...we stayed in a cabin! it was fun though because we got to do the whole camp fire thing and fishing and being dirty, and then we could shower and sleep in a bed. The kids did really good and Merik was in heaven, he spent the entire week outside. He went fishing for his first time and had so much fun because he caught a fish every time he cast (there was a darling little red fish attached to his line). It was so cute to see him and pat doing that together! He also got to sit on one of his new favorite things, "twaaacters". Pat, Steve, Bill, and I got to go on an incredible hike down into a canyon. Pat carried Merik in a back pack we have and he did pretty well and loved the amazing lake we found at the bottom. It was unbelievable georgous and luckily worth the massive hike back up-yeah I thought I was going to die! We had a great time!
