waiting to get into the lodge when we arrived

The kids and i went to Colorado with my family to celebrate my parents 40th wedding anniversary that they just celebrated in May. You will have to bear with my several posts of our Colorado trip, i want to do several so i get everything in for the kids to look back on. We got back to Hutchinson at around 6:30 last night and then Phil (my brother-in-law) went with me and the kids back to KC since he had to work today. Several of the other families were staying till today or later in the week. We had a great trip, all 34 of us (21 of those were kids). We traveled in two 15 passenger vans and my brothers expedition with a uhaul trailer attached for all the luggage. We had all the babies that were in car seats (5) in one van with the moms, and the dads had the bigger kids plus two other car seat babies in their van. All the kids did awesome for the trip! We stayed near Cuchara, CO in the Spanish Peaks Lodge, which was huge and accomidated our family well. There was tons of room for the kids to run around, and they had a blast! It was a very fun trip and i think the kids made a lot of memories! Thank you so much Dad and Mom for planning and providing for this special trip!!

I love reading about vacations. The mountains in CO are beautiful. We are going there in a few weeks for the weekend to a reunion. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun and survived with all of those kids!
