Garden of the One True God

One of my family's favorite places to visit when they come out is the Garden of the Gods.  The rock formations are so beautiful and just so different.  There are wonderful trails to walk, and it's all nestled near the base of the Rocky Mountains.  By the way, if you have been following any of the news on the Colorado wildfires, the biggest one has been quite near this place.  Our family got the chance to visit just 2 days before the fires went wild.  And although there are different explanations as to how the rock formations got here, my children will happily walk through the place reminding us all that the Garden of the Gods is really the Garden of the One True God.  And how blessed we were to spend this day together, admiring His handiwork.

Super-Perfect Weather!

Nat, Emily, Emma, and Thomas, waiting for us all to get ready to start.

Can't you just feel the warm sun and fresh air?

My Mom has lost 75 pounds and she practically left us all in the dust!


The little girls stopped to make peach pies in the shade.  I think their dresses were light blue before the trip.  Not so blue anymore...
