Colorado Road Trip 2013 - Part 1

Another summer, another Sweatland family road trip. This year we returned to Steamboat Springs to spend time with Carrie's family and do a little camping in the mountains. It was a great visit and the kids enjoyed hanging out with their cousins. Here's a family photo from taken at Stagecoach Reservoir:

Steamboat is a fun little town. We spent our days fishing, swimming, and running around town, and filled our evenings with dinner, board games, and lots of pool time. There was a little pond just down the street from the place we stayed, and Jacob, his cousin Johnny, and the men spent many a day fishing. Here's Jacob and Johnny with the catch:

Annie and Carrie must have spent 80 percent of their time in the pool. Truth be told we all spent a lot of time in the water. The weather was hot and sunny and the pool was a great relief from the heat of July.

Here's a photo of Annie and cousin Kelly, with Annie doing what Annie does - enjoying a soda:

Being a family, there had to be a little friendly competition, so we hit the putt-putt course for a quick game. Carrie and the McVay clan played pretty well, but unfortunately I don't think Jacob will be earning a golfing scholarship to college.

 With family spread all over the states, it was really nice for Carrie's dad to get us a place where we could spend time together. We'll definitely plan more family get-togethers like this in the future.
