Seven Falls

Last weekend, all the girls and Porter took a trip to Colorado Springs to visit Seven Falls. The weather was beautiful and we had a great day! We trucked it up two-hundred and something-ridiculous stairs to reach the top. You can see the stairs going up the left side of the falls. I wore Porter in his wrap (which I haven't done since he was tiny) and it was the best decision of the day. I was a little stressed about the steepness and height once I got going, but it was worth it! If I'd had to carry Porter I would have had a heart attack, for sure. Lissie did great with Granny's help, and Abby went all the way up and down with very little help, and no complaints. What a big girl!

There was a viewing area (where I took the last photo) and thankfully we went up this after the big one. I was smart enough to take the elevator :). The other stairs had no other option but to climb up, and climb down! My calves were burning the next day!

We watched Native American dancers, and Porter was enthralled... for a minute :)

Look how stunned he is by the natural beauty. We are surrounded by beautiful things, and we are so thankful to be here!

I'm glad you are enjoying the scenery of Colorado. How's Craig's job going?

Stop it, you're making us jealous. Florida is so boring! :)

Beautiful!!! I can't believe how big he is getting - he is starting to look like a toddler!

K, you are so brave to take him to something like that. Chayce is so independant that even if I wanted to wrap him up he would have a screaming fit. What pretty pics though.. I highly doubt I could have climbed that with a baby on me so KUDOS to you!! :)
