Estes Park, Colorado

Hanging in the park...

Anybody wanna play?

The tail is great!!!

I was 2 feet from these amazing animals!!
To start with, sometimes I don't understand the images and how they appear on the screen. The above looks like I just dropped a bunch of pictures onto the screen...yikes!

Our weekend was quite restful as Eli has the croup. We thought it would be best to lay low for most of the weekend. Eli wanted to get out the lincoln logs. I had to laugh as Rob spent almost 45 minutes building an entire village...then Eli played with it for about 7 minutes before he had to destroy it. Eli has been a little poopsicle lately with his toys...likes to crash them onto the ground. Oh what fun it is!!!

After hanging home on Friday, we decided to take a ride up to Estes Park and check out some of the shops. Eli was getting a little restless so we decided to take him to the park...wrong answer! The park was being occupied by a herd of elk!! We could hardly believe our eyes...thankgoodness Eli was ok with not going to that particular park. The pictures are pretty amazing. Rob had made a comment that he can walk around in the woods all day and not see an elk...then to come to the park and they are everywhere.

I was able to get some more Christmas shopping done and presents wrapped. Yes, you read that correctly! Hard to believe that we only have 3 weeks before we have our first Christmas morning of the season with Rob's kids.

On Monday, my mommies group got together for the Great Pumpkin Party. The kids were able to paint their pumpkins, make a mask, and best of all, play! You will be able to see a sneak peek of Eli's dinosuar costume. Yeah, he actually wore it for quite some time. My mom was the professional that did all the handy work...I will stick to sewing buttons onto shirts!
