So, we have been in Crawford, CO for the last week enjoying a week of vacation with Ontario's family. We are staying at the family ranch which is AWESOME, to put it mildly. When I say family ranch, I mean extended family, not immediate family. But family nonetheless!
This is the house. The window on the far upper left is our bedroom window.

So, as you might imagine it's been a pretty awesome vacation. There have been lots of activities, like whitewater rafting, horseback riding, four-wheeling, hiking, goldmine spelunking, fishing, jeep tours, pony rides, etc. Unfortunately, I only got to participate in one or two of these activities because of my delicate condition. That was the same thing that happened last year. I have got to come sometime when I am not pregnant.

It's been a lot of fun, but also very tiring. I haven't been sleeping as much as usual, and neither has Gabe. Poor Tari has to put up with a cranky wife and son. But he also gets to do all the fun stuff I don't, so I don't feel too bad. :) It's been fun being with family and getting to know various cousins better.

One of the most exciting things that has happened so far has been our friendly neighborhood bear that keeps coming to visit. It's a pretty young bear that obviously hasn't been taught to be afraid of humans, because it tried to come in the house. It's just on the prowl for food, but it's pretty exciting when you are eating dinner and there is a bear 5 feet outside the window. I will post pictures of that as soon as I get them on the computer.

I need to go pack, since we head home tomorrow. I am tired, but happy.
