Fall Colorado Fun!!

We went to Denver/Winter Park Colorado for Conference weekend. We had the best time!! It was the perfect way to start off the fall season. My parents live in Denver, but have a fun, nice cabin in Winter park, Colorado. We spent 3 days up in the cabin! We loved being in the beautiful outdoors enjoying the mountains, fall trees, walking in secret trails way back in the trees & and along rivers and ponds, Playing at the park near my parents house, going on bike rides, fall scenic drives, getting cozy in the cabin near the fire, eating yummy fall meals and pumpkin pie, and watching conference! The weather there was exactly what fall weather should be...Crisp, cool air, cool enough to get bundled up when going outside. And then cool enough to where you want to run in the cabin and curl up and get warm and cozy with hot chocolate and a nice fire!! Carter and Sawyer had the time of their lives. They were all smiles with all the fun stuff we did. Sawyers little personality came out even more this past week, he was hamming it up the whole time...such a happy baby and so fun to be around. THe boys love their Grammy and Papa! We are so glad that we came out. Jono had to go home earlier for work, but the boys and I stayed till Wednesday. There will be more pics to come from the rest of our trip!

Your boys are adorable. How fun to be able to spend some time with your parents and enjoy the fall weather that San Diego usually seems to lack! I love little Sawyer's Beatles shirt... where did you get that?
