Boulder my Boulder

Sadly, the other weekend Brian's grandparents had a visit planned but Brian's grandfather fell ill so they weren't able to travel.  He's doing much better now so we hope we can see them soon!  Since our weekend plans changed we decided to head up to Boulder, Colorado. I'd never been before and was really anxious to see it because I'd heard it was beautiful and fun.
Our first stop was Chautauqua Park and it did not disappoint in the views department.

I had run 3.5 miles that morning but figured a hike, hey why not?

It was tough!  So I made them all stop and take some pictures.






I mean the posing, where is this coming from?!


The Flatirons are beautiful!

The view from the hike




Brian and Brady wanted to run ahead but Little Miss Princess couldn't bear to walk so she sat on a log and clapped her hands instead.

Saved by her prince!



After the hike we headed to the Celestial Seasonings factory.





My favorite picture. It's kind of a lie, we didn't take the tour (it was only for kids 5+) but we did taste some tea!



They thought most of it was "yucky!" but they liked it once I put some sugar in there.

It started POURING while we were there.

Our next stop was Pearl Street Mall in downtown Boulder. The clouds starting parting so we decided to try it out.

It was really pretty. And there were lots of touristy and lots of very weird people there.

We walked around a lot, stopped at Caribou Coffee (my Minnesota favorite!), watched some street performers, and dodged the tons of "sign up for world peace" lobbyists.  

And we had to climb on some boulders while in Boulder. Because, of course.  

Boulder is a ton of fun and we will definitely make another trip up there!

Sounds like a fun day! Aren't you surprised that you actually got pictures of both of the kids smiling at the same time?? Haha :)
