first family vacation

At the end of September we enjoyed a 5-night stay in the part of our country that truly has our hearts- the Rocky Mountains.  It was truly our first family-of-four vacation, and our first vacation with kids. Period.  I can hardly believe how well our kids did.  Sleeping in a new place, skipping naps, while new activities littered our days there.  We hiked together, swam together, and enjoyed the outdoors with everything we had in us.  The family time was simply, the best.  Our kids were happy explorers and happy sleepers (I know, I'm just as shocked).  What a time to treasure, and what a time to remember.
