Glenwood Caverns

About 10 minutes away from Megan and Phil's apt was Glenwood Caverns. We spend part of the day doing fun stuff there.
We all rode the Gondola up to the top of the mountain. It was hot and stuffy but the view was fabulous.

Bekah was teething and so was grumpy and kinda out of it due to the Tylenol. You can see the dazed look on her face.

We had fun taking pictures with the bear at the Glenwood Caverns.

Grandpa and Bekah hanging out together.

They had some fun mirrors on the wall so we got a new look at ourselves. I love this one of Megan and me.

Isn't the view so beautiful? I really enjoyed seeing all the mountains and the Colorado River too. There were hot springs in the town right below us and you could see the pool they made from them when we were in the Gondola.

We had lots of fun at the top of the mountain. Here I am riding a "Bull" for the first time ever. It is a lot harder than it looks. I stayed on for over a minute!! My legs were all shaky by the time I fell off.

Then Phil tried to ride the bull also. The guy running it said that he did the same with Phil as with me. He fell off after only 8-10 seconds. This is the only picture I was able to get. Sorry Phil.

Phil, Megan and the grizzly bear. Such a cute photo shoot. I got this one while standing in line for the Alpine slide. My dad had to leave and Megan was watching Bekah so Phil and I were the ones that got to go down it. It was so much fun!! I went so fast and hardly braked at all. The view was awesome.

Such a cute couple!

Bekah-all worn out.

After the Alpine slide Phil and I climbed the rock wall. We were neck and neck for awhile. At the top of the wall it was really windy and our arms were getting really shaky. It was lots of fun.

I went on a trampoline hooked up to a bungee cord. I was able to jump 2-3 times my hight and do flips in the air. The kids doing it could jump for like 5 -7 minutes without getting tired. I jumped for maybe half the time then begged to get down. I was exhausted-especially from doing everything else. I really had a nice time hanging out with Megan and Phil.

Phil even managed to make friends with Bekah finally. The first night we were there Megan and I were giving Bekah a bath. Phil came home from work and scared us. I screamed and that scared Bekah. She hid her face from him every time he tried to interact with her. Finally on Friday she would let him hold her and play with her.

Visiting Colorado was so Fun

Bekah and I flew out to Colorado for a few days to visit my sister Megan. Bekah did well on the two plane flights out there but I was very glad to be done flying with a baby. Megan made friends with Bekah very quickly. She was so cute playing with Bekah and talking baby talk. The first night we walked to the golf course right by her house. We had lots of fun taking pictures by the creek and on the green. Here I was twirling with Bekah.

This was the lawn in front of Megan and Phil's apartment. We let Bekah crawl all over the grass and explore for awhile.

The creek was such a beautiful place to take pictures.

Bekah loved playing with the toys Megan bought for her and for her new baby. She loved the table that talked to her, the plastic shapes and bucket and especially the wooden puzzles. She played with the stuffed tiger and crawled all over it. We had a great time in Colorado.

Stay tuned for more fun pictures.

My French Cap and A Yummy Apple

I had dropped an apple on the floor and decided to let Bekah play with it. I thought she might try to bite it but I was so surprised that she did as well as she did. She grabbed it and sat there for 20 minutes just taking little bites out of it with her baby teeth. I love the way her nose wrinkles up when she is trying to eat it.

This little outfit with a jacket and matching cap was so adorable. She was just hamming it up while I was getting pictures of her. Enjoy!
