Estes Park

Well we made it to Estes Park, it's actually the Rocky Mountain National Park but we stayed in a very sweet lodge just outside a town called Estes Park. Jacob and Abi managed 2 walks. One around a Lake called Bear Lake and another to Nymph Lake ( thanks for the advice Carrie, they were perfect walks for our 2). They just loved climbing on the rocks and I was panicking the whole time as I thought they were going to break their necks. We all really enjoyed it though and hope to visit again. We had 2 very different days weather as you will see from the photos. Day one was T shirt weather, day two snow gear! The lodge was great except for Jacob waking up at 5am and not going back to sleep!
Allen's off tomorrow for Columbus day but the children aren't so we've got the morning to catch up on videos.
The other major piece of news is that we are here for 2 years - well as sure as you can be in the forces. Hoping that will mean more people can visit. It also means we can plan out our trips a bit and not try to fit them all in in one year. We are still going to do all the ones we really want to do in a year just in case - Arizona (Carrie, are the dates OK?). Also planning on San Fran and Las Vegas ASAP. Hoping to meet Marion in Vancouver in June.
Also started selling a product called Arbonne, if anyone wants any details let me know....(Mum and Katharine may be intersted?)Off to bed, hope all's well

Glad you enjoyed it. And congratulations on 2 years in Colorado! We've got you down for the weekend of October 27, right? But we're flexible, if you have to change for any reason. Thought we could do some hikes, see Antelope Canyon, did you want to do the float trip?, and more. It may be a bit of driving for you (2 hours), but we can do a day trip to the Grand Canyon. Well, no need to plan now, just some ideas we can decide upon when you get here.
