Paige's Trip to CO

Wow, what a super fun summer so far.  At the end of June, Jeanette, Melissa and I took a road trip to Colorado.  Melissa's boyfriend spends the summer working/teaching in Golden, CO and Melissa was having a hard time figuring out how to get her pup Sadie out there.  I suggested that she teach summer school with us and then we would drive her and Sadie out there, then J and I would fly back.  Great idea, right?!?! 
Getting ready for the road...
This vacation went without a hitch and we all had a great time.  I did so many new things in such a short amount of time. Beware, picture overload to ensue....

We first went white water rafting.  I have always wanted to go, but never had the chance, and thought I would be too scared.  Well, I did about pee my pants, but I made it through.  

Next, we went horseback riding.  Now this was not your typical nose-to-butt horseback ride.  We had complete control over the horses and we each took turns leading the back.  I have never ridden a horse before, but picked it up easily.  We even cantered.

The whole gang.

We then did some hiking up Look-Out Mountain. 
And finally, we went to the Coors Brewery in Golden, CO.  

It was an amazing trip.  We had such a great time and I didn't even get altitude sickness.  I hope to take Andrew to CO sometime soon.  More pictures are on facebook if you wish to see more.
