On Top of the World

It's amazing how much less I feel like blogging when I'm staying with my fifteen-month-old twin granddaughters--and their wonderful parents, of course.  It's hard to get motivated to sit down and write when there are so many fun things going on, so many cute shenanigans to watch (and then a nice lie-down with a book seems like such a glorious option when the wee ones go down for their nap!).

Before I have my siesta, though, I thought I'd take a minute to post a picture I took this morning while we were hiking on a trail called "Siamese Twins" in a breathtakingly beautiful park out here in Colorado Springs called the "Garden of the Gods."  The rugged landscape in this park, which looked to me like something out of my cowboy-wannabe husband's favorite movie, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, is absolutely breathtaking.  When we finished our climb to the summit of our trail, we could see Pike's Peak in the distance.  The twins were real troopers on this outing, and they seemed to love looking at all the beautiful scenery from up high--Kewpie in a backpack carrier on her daddy's back, and Bonny on Grammy's.  As you can see from the picture, Kewpie was feeling on top of the world.
What a grand day this has been already!  I could go on and on about that wonderful hike.  But with a stunning photograph like this to tell the story, no words are really necessary!


  1. I just love that photo. Can you email me the others? :-)

  2. Of course! I will do it right now!

  3. Garden of the Gods was one of our favorite "go to places" on the weekends when we were out there! Beautiful! This makes me miss Colorado so much!

  4. It is extremely beautiful here! I'm enjoying it!
