Colorado Shower and Slide

Have you noticed that we love going to visit my family in Colorado? Of course this trip included a celebration

Baby Buttons
My mom is on this fondant cake making kick and this was her creation for the shower...This round she found that lemon cake is too dense and doesn't stand up against all the weight of a 3 tiered, double-layer cake. Can you tell it's leaning? 

 We decided to photo each person with the gift they gave me so I could remember who gave me what, and I promised they were just for me to view...hence here's a snapshot of the shower stuff rather. Don't look to close:)

I got so into the gifts for baby buttons that I made some gifts of my own...
A cupcake flannel blanket for Daddy's sweetie.
Some simple flowers for her head:) I am soo happy with the hairbows I bought from JenniferTaylorDesigns that I couldn't stop at just those. Hers are WAAAY better though, mine are just simple ones and hers are definitely boutique worthy amazing!

The next day we went adventuring in San Isabel National Park to a natural waterslide that everyone was excited for...except I couldn't go of course. The hike was supposed to be just an easy walk by the creek to the rocks, but it ended up being pretty difficult for a 7month pregnant lady:) the elevation and walking wasn't bad, we just had big logs and rocks to go over and under and bending and moving around is a little difficult with my growing belly. I am so grateful I am in such good shape otherwise it wouldn't have been so good. Tyler on the other hand suffered worse than I since he had a bad sinus infection but didn't want to miss out on the fun.
Does it look like we're enjoying ourselves? So, we probably would've been enjoying ourselves like my siblings if we weren't sick/pregnant, but I'm sure glad my bros and sisters had such a great time. This is a sweet natural waterslide and definitely a fun activity for the summer!!!

So long last trip home until Thanksgiving...with baby in tow!!!

I hate to ask this as it looks like it was so long ago. Not sure this is even an active blog anymore. I live in Colorado and shocking but I never knew about this place. Any chance you can share how to get here?? you can send a personal email - I would love to take my kids this summer.
