Big, because there are lots of pictures. Lots and lots of pictures!
Over Memorial Day weekend, Molly and I headed out for our annual
pilgrimage vacation to Colorado. Lots of time with family, lots of time with friends, lots of activities, very little free time.
Surprisingly, I found myself at various events without a camera. As a result, I don’t have pictures of everything we did. *gasp*
No worries, I will just fill in the voids with the extra pictures of the events where I did have a camera (and took plenty of pictures). That should keep my Mom and Dad happy.
We started the big vaca with a trip to the splash park on Memorial Day.
After a little splash, Molly put on clothes and headed to the park.
But wait, she wasn’t done yet! Later that day, we went to a BBQ. Molly loved hanging out with the kids on this trip. Never mind that the kids were often 10-15 years older than her!
Another highlight of the trip was a visit to Heritage Square. This is a place I visited as a kid, but now they added amusement park rides.
Most of the rides were pint-sized. Molly was big enough to ride them, but not big enough to ride them alone. So that meant that I got to accompany her on almost every one.
and the paddle boats…
and the tea cups…
and the flying banana ride.
and the roller coaster.Remember how I said the rides were pint-sized? Here’s the evidence. Check out how much room I have for my knees. We road this
torture device ride four times.
My daughter is a true adrenalin junky. She loved all of the rides, and the more they spun, the more she loved them. Me, not so much anymore. I was sick to my stomach before we left the park. Seriously.
Luckily, before dinner my stomach settled down. I say luckily because we met my parents at the Elephant Bar for dinner. And they were paying. I’d hate to miss a free meal.
Molly never missed an opportunity to pose like a princess.
One the way home we changed planes in Minneapolis. Molly was so excited to see Daddy that she was jumping for joy in the airport.
She made me take a picture with my phone and send it to Daddy so he could see how excited she was. I don’t know what it is about this age, but Molly wants pictures of everything.
Eleven days of fun, fun, fun.
Molly slept 13 straight hours for the first 4 nights we got home. Do ya think she had a good time?
I think so, too!
