Postcards from Colorado

We just returned home from an EPIC spring break trip to Keystone with the kids.  It wasn’t my first time there, but going with the kids gave me a view through their eyes, so everything felt so fresh.  That beginner’s mindset has to be my favorite thing about traveling. We spent a lot of timeContinue reading “Postcards from Colorado”

After what seemed like the longest car ride ever we finally arrived at the park on aContinue reading “Big Bend’s Boquillas Canyon”
