|Views of Longs peak and Meeker from the hike. There were much closer than this picture makes them appear.|
|Ethan insisted on walk for a bit of the hike.... he really just wanted to dig in the dirt.|
|the rock formations of Lumpy Ridge were amazing!|
|"Come on Ethan, come on....Are you sure you don't want back in the back pack?" |
"NO Mommy!!!! Me do! A me walk!"
Ah, alas, there is no hurrying a two year old..... or making him do something he does not want to do.
|A very proud Matthew for climbing up the rocks!|
|this is not a great picture but the wild flowers were still amazing!|
|"lumpy ridge" up close. You could see rock climbers scaling it.|
|Behind this there were several other rocks and a tunnel between them.... We pretended we were on a dragon hunt... big fun for the boys!|
|Yeah! He's back in the back pack and smiling about it!|
|A parting view at the end of the hike|
|And to make a great day even better, the boys friend William came over to play. Batman, Flash and a goofy Ethan all had a lot of fun playing together while the "Mommies" sat on the new sofa.|
|I have no idea why but for some reason Ethan wanted to wear these safety goggles and kept them on for over an hour.|
