Rocky Mountain National Park

This weekend we went camping at Rocky Mountain National Park with two other families. Like usual, our campsite had several visitors.

On Saturday we hiked up to Alberta Falls with Tim, April, Keaghan, Aspen, Kaitlynn, and Gavin. Joann and Eddie didn't have the baby carrier for Logan, so they did their own thing.

On the hike, I was up ahead with the five kids. A lady asked me if the kids were all mine and when I said no she went "Whew!" That's good". I almost wanted to say: No, I meant these aren't all mine because it doesn't include the three more back at the campgrounds. People!

We made it to the top and kids spent lots of time exploring and climbing all over the rocks.

Afterwards, we hung out at the campsite.

What do you get when you put Joann in the camper with six kids? A crazy tumbling mess!

The next day we hiked around Bear Lake with Joann, Eddie and Logan. We took the time to dip our toes in the water.

And Morgan discovered that pushing a real baby around in a stroller was harder then pushing around a doll.

Morgan got her first Junior Ranger badge on this trip. She had a great time filling out the questions, animal facts and scavenger hunt items in her activity booklet. She also got another stamp in our National Park Passport book for a new total of three. Not bad for getting the book in July.
