We did several hikes during our time in the mountains (I think this is my last post from that week!)
One of Andrew and I's favorite spots to take the girls is this boulder field (you take the ski lift up the mountain to get to it). It was fun to take the whole Wolgie family up this trip. The older kids all are really good at scrambling across the rocks.
Naomi and Tess. Almost exactly a year apart. Love seeing their relationship develop. They could be trouble together :)
Malia and Kendal coming down from the boulder field. There was a lot more snow up there than we have experienced in the past, but it didn't seem to bother the kids.
Not sure where this hiking pose came from?
On our way out of the mountains, the whole family got one last hike in.
Davey at the top of McCullough Gulch (again where is this hiking pose from?)
3 miles roundtrip - 1,000 feet elevation gain - 11,900 ft summit
Probably one of the hardest hikes I have ever done and we did it with 7 kids under 7!
Naomi was excited to explore at the top. That pink speck is her!
Malia and Graham with the lake behind them.
Naomi almost asleep in the backpack.
More hiking down.

More Copper pictures.
Andrew's parents brought squirt bottles for all of the kids and they were a huge hit. Here is Naomi playing with hers.
One afternoon we had a water balloon fight.
Chris and Andrew were the targets for most of the balloons.
Malia taking on Chris.
Naomi did not like the idea of walking into the tall grass and so all of her balloons got tossed on the patio or right into the grass.
Malia showing off her new tattoo.
The house we were staying at had a hot tub which served as our pool for the week. The kids loved it.

After St. Louis, I was home for less than 5 days (that were filled with spontaneous and time consuming home projects... what was I thinking?) before we headed to the mountains for our annual 4th of July trip with Andrew's family. On the way up, we stopped at Lake Dillon to have lunch at this really great playground with breathtaking views.
Malia and Tess and friend on the "roller coaster."
