Seeing my 3 little men before heading to Colorado

We had a week off of school for 'Presidents' Week.'  This year we headed to Colorado to see Mom and John David and his family.
We weren't flying out until Sunday, so we spent a little bit of time with Gabe and a little time with Lindsey.
At Gabe's, Emerson was hanging out while his Papa and Dad talked about projects...

I think Gabe was explaining some of the finer points of projects...
Ahhh, I love these!
We headed down to Lindsey's...

There was definitely some trampoline time.   Benjamin was sliding across...and William wanted to do the same thing.  He was having trouble doing it like Benjamin.  It was the first time I think I've ever seen him upset with himself because he couldn't do something!

 This was all on Saturday...Sunday was out day to head to Colorado!

Trinidad Lighthouse

 January 10 was the 50th anniversary of the Trinidad Lighthouse...and the day the big wave hit.
 They had an open house...for the original Lighthouse.
Here's the town of Trinidad from somewhere along the hike to the lighthouse...

My guy stopped to look at the beautiful scenery!

Here's the lighthouse...100 years ago, a HUGE wave came in and broke some of the windows in this!

Inside the lighthouse, this is how you climbed up to look out...

Broken window from the wave of 1914...

This was a fun day...and I love to look at photos like this and remind myself what a beautiful area we live in!
