It is so sad that it's August and this was THE FIRST time Ian has rock climbed. He really loves it, but it is impossible to go with just us, Holden would be off in no time and Everett would be miserable to just sit alone and watch. So, we got Nichole, Ty, and Emily on board and we had a big day out. We met down in Castle Rock at Castlewood Canyon State Park.
The climbing area was great, very shaded and lots of little trails and big rocks for exploring.
While the guys roped up and climbed, Nichole and I took the kids for a hike. The girls had a great time looking for bears. "Mr. Bear, Mr. Bear, where are you?"
Holden had fun finding pine cones and giving them to everyone declaring, "Here, you will LOVE IT!"
Of course 5 minutes before we left Emily decided to take a "bath" and "get clean" with the dirt and dust.
And then we needed to finish the trip with a beautiful rendition of Itsy Bitsy Spider!
