Home sweet home

It's nice to get away but it's far better to come back home! We have been away for most of the last month and I feel I'm having withdraws of normalcy. Who ever said vacations were for rest and relaxation? While I do get rest (one day out of 7), it's always fast paced and tiresome. Going here, there and everywhere. Doing this, that and the other.

We had a really good time though. My daughter, Grace, skied for the first time and she did an awesome job! My son, Chase, loves trains so we took him to Durango, Colorado to ride the Durango/Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. The train ride is a 5 hour round trip that takes you high into the mountains of the San Juan National Forest. The views are breath taking.

Here are some pictures of our trip :)

Grandma,

I know the kids wished you could have been there as well. Gracie wanted you to ski with her :)

Morehart,

I didn't realize my camera's date was wrong until I had taken several pictures. :-)

Welcome back!
It looks like a great time was had by all! That train looks very impresive!

Colin,

Thanks for the welcome back. We did in deed have a great time. That's an old steam engine. It's quite impressive to see this thing in operation.
