Colorado visit

We were so excited to get out of the heat of Arizona and visit Grandma and Grandpa in Colorado.  Craig came for just a couple of days and we took the opportunity to hike buffalo mountain.  As many of you know, I’m training to hike the Grand Canyon from North rim to South rim at the end of September–so I needed the experience.  Hiking in Colorado is so beautiful and it reminded me how important it is to pick your head up and look around every once in a while.  It was worth it.  As you can see from the pictures, the scene was spectacular.  We saw three mountain goats at the summit.  The one pictured was getting a little too close for comfort as far as I was concerned.  But overall, it was a great time. 

Taylor had a blast with Grandma and Grandpa!  They were so wonderful to fly us out for the visit and we enjoyed every minute.  From shopping to visiting the horses to finally getting to play outdoors–she loved it all.  She is becoming an expert traveler.  I’m still waiting on some pictures that Sarah took while we were out there, so check back to see updated pics of Taylor.  In the meantime, I have posted just a few from July 4th. If I can figure out this video thing, we’ll soon post her golf swing that daddy is so proud of…..

  1. Hey Lauriann! I’m so excited to see pictures and feel like a part of your life. It really is a lot of fun! The pictures of the hike are absolutely gorgeous! I think that it’s amazing that you will be hiking the Grand Canyon. How long will it take to go from the North to South rim?

    But more importantly I love seeing Taylor grow up. She is such a cute Toddler. What kind of fun things is she doing now? Keep us updated!
