On Daddy's last day in CO the entire family drove the long winding dirt path of switch backs that climb all the way up to Piney Lake. It's only 1l miles above Vail but takes like an hour to get there because the road is so rough from the winter run off but it's totally worth the time it takes to reach this amazing place.
We had a outdoor lunch on the picnic tables when we arrived.
Andrew is obsessed with Gatorade but I try to keep it away from him because I think the Red40 dye makes him totally wild.
Of course we had to get pictures of the boys on this old wagon with the mountains in the back ground
I love this one
And this one. The scenery is almost other worldly
We decided to take the boys on their first canoe ride, they were so excited.
Waiting for more oars to come back in
We played at the playground while we waited
I think it's our turn!
Lifejackets on in case we tip
And we're off!
The boys especially loved getting to row
We finally got a group picture of the whole family
My BIL Shawn, Nephew Ben, Sis Dana, Brother Casey holding Nephew Luke, SIL Rachel holding Niece Kate, Niece Lauren Seated, Adam, Kenny, Andrew, Me, Mom & Dad
We finally got a decent shot of the 4 of us
Oh how I love my twin boys
Ben decided to drive us back down the mountain, just kidding =-)
And a little wild life to end our trip
What an awesome day and I'm so glad Kenny got to make it with the boys & I. The last time we went to Piney Lake together was the year we got married.
