Ode to Colorado

Every time I leave the city and enter the nearby more mountainous parts of my lovely state, I am always so in awe of God’s wonders. He didn’t have to make everything so beautiful, ya know, but aren’t we glad He did? It always reminds me that our creative desires and love for beauty is a result of being created in His very image.

We escaped home and spent the night with Casey’s parents in Colorado City last weekend. While there we witnessed a sideways-blowing crazy rain storm, which resulted in this amazing rainbow!

I can never get enough of the views from their yard down there, even though it seems the camera never quite captures it like real life!

8 grandkids on this side of the fam. 5 boys, 3 girls. These are the girls ๐Ÿ™‚

Love this one of Natalie!

It occurred to us recently that we have never taken the kids to Bishop’s Castle, which is only minutes from my in-laws house. ย This place is the result of one guy and his father before him, I think, over several decades. It’s crazy and ridiculous and awe-inspiring and a death-trap all rolled into one ๐Ÿ™‚

Natalie and Kelby were FEARLESS! It was freaking me out. This is NOT a safe place. Layla, on the other hand was absolutely terrified. In her defense, I was not thrilled about the initial super-steep staircase either ๐Ÿ˜‰
Can you see it in her face?? hahaha!

While I’m on Colorado and its merits, love this oldie from good ol’ Five Iron Frenzy:

It’s true, ya know ๐Ÿ™‚
