Remember when?

I realize that I haven't written about what we've been doing in CO at all. Even the fun stuff. Like that time when we stayed at the cabin in Yampa. This was the view from our cabin:



We had lots of fun with the horses, and I was only slightly terrified.





They had a natural hot springs hot tub. That, combined with a view of the Milky Way galaxy. Perfect.



We hiked around the ranch, and I fell in love with Aspen trees.





Reuben carved our initials into one of those aspens, hopefully we'll manage to come back and find it again.



We spent Labor day in the tiny town of Oak Creek. A coal town, they were the very first place to officially recognize Labor Day, back in the 1800s. They've been celebrating with the Labor Day Parade every year since. Pretty much the entire town is in the parade (which isn't many) so we came to show our support. There were lots of ladies dressed up like the olden days.



We celebrated our anniversary (yes, one year!) with some good old fashioned bbq ribs.



On the way back to CO Springs, we stopped in Vail, to see what all the fuss was about.




My parents own a piece of property near Breckenridge, and we wanted to stop by to see the place. Yes, it is located at 11,000 feet and in the middle of absolutely nowhere, but they were hoping to build a cabin there someday, and cabins are supposed to be in the middle of nowhere anyway. It was quite a nice piece of forest, actually.




Other random things, check out this rainbow!



We spent a week up at another cabin, just north of the Springs.



I was so excited to see prairie dogs!



And oh yes, who could forget when we went to the prologue ride of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge. It started at the Garden of the Gods, so we parked at the YWAM base and took our bikes there. This day pretty much made Reuben's LIFE. He got to cheer on The Schleck brothers, Cadel Evans, George Hincappee, and everyone that he always admired from the television screen in the Tour de France.






Oh yes, and we woke up one day to watch the sunrise.
