Happy Colorado Day

Today is Colorado Day - a day to stop and celebrate this amazing state that we choose to call home. I feel very lucky to be able to live here and try to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us most days. The timing could not be more perfect as we went away to the mountains this weekend. I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate Colorado than to be in the old rockies. The drive up there was spectacular..............

This was our destination for the weekend, the good old YMCA. I have heard great things about it and I thought I better check it out myself.

I think I may have been the only person wearing a dress!! The dress code seemed to be a camp T-shirt and shorts. Well, you can take the girl out of London etc. etc.....

It was Oompa Loompa HEAVEN, there was so much for them to do and see. It has taken 4 years but I finally found out how to make a proper smores - we weren't cooking our marshmallows long enough - now I know!!

Yay - bunk beds. How happy do they look??

Kayaking - love that!!

and time to just stop and smell the flowers........

It was amazing, I felt like I was in the film Dirty Dancing minus Patrick Swayze and also minus the dancing - although I did go roller skating - ERR hello, haven't done that for over 20 years. Little house blocks, communal dining halls, activities left, right and centre - I am hooked. Happy Birthday Colorado - just LOVING you.
