Our trip to Kansas and Colorado


Our trip to Kansas and Colorado was absolutely wonderful! Our flight out to Kansas City was smooth and quick then we had a 3 hour drive to my grandparents farm in Abilene Kansas. This is the first time my mother's entire family has been together in 3 years! The following morning we all caravaned out to Estes Park, Colorado. (an 8 hour drive) We stayed at a lodge at the YMCA of the rockies. We spent 3 days there for a family reunion with all of my grandfather's siblings and families. While we were there we got to do some shopping in Estes Park, Brian went golfing and we went hiking in Rockie Mountain National Park. The mountains there are just so amazing! Brian has never been to Colorado so he was even more amazed with the size of the mountains there.

After the reunion we went back to my grandparents farm for another 3 days. Going to the farm is such a sweet time for me. Growing up it was a very special place to visit since we didn't get to go as often as we would have liked since we lived so far away. We just spent a lot of time resting and visiting with family... and a little antique shopping, of course.

Again out traveling home was smooth. We even got to ride first class on our last flight.

It was just so nice to get away from the business of life and get to spend so much time with Brian and the kids! The Lord really blessed us with a lot of sweet moments with those who I don't get to see often and those who I see every day! I'm so thankful for my family!!!

Thank you to those of you who prayed for our safety! Hope you enjoy some pictures of the trip!
