10 hours With Angela

Titus’ sister Angela had a layover here in Denver that was 12 hours long! That is a stupidly long layover, but lucky for her we live here so she spent the day with us. James woke up that morning and said, “Where is my Aunty Ang?” ha ha We had a few different ideas on how to spend the day, but Angela said she really wanted to go to Breckenridge and ride the gondola. So we loaded up the van and drove 1 1/2 hours only to find out that it wasn’t running. The sign said it was closed until June, we were there on June 3rd, but apparently that was too early in June.

What do we do now?

Take pictures?

Or go to the toy store and play?

We drove half way home and stopped at a park to go hiking. For being so excited about it the children were hugely uncooperative. We were very thankful that Angela was there to help us carry ALL of them most of the way up.

At the top there are a bunch of rocks to climb on. Suddenly the boy’s tiredness, grumpiness, and tummy aches vanished, but only until we headed back down.

It was, ah, a bit windy up there!

We tried to excite them to walk with sticks, but it didn’t work very long.

Faith was the best one of the bunch!

Once we got to the bottom suddenly the boys were fine again! And they started picking wild flowers.
