The Treasure Hunt

Every morning on our trip, the kids woke up to a note from "the robber," (a.k.a. Grandpa) giving them clues to find the hidden treasure. They would scream and run around the house as they searched for the hidden treasure box full of the days'  prizes.

Celebrating The 4th In Steamboat Springs

This year we celebrated Independence Day in Steamboat Springs, Colorado with my family. The day began with a morning at the 4th of July parade where the kids got sprayed by water guns and showered with candy & other goodies.

In the evening we headed to the rodeo to watch some intense roping and barrel racing. The kids loved getting to run around with their cousins and annoy their uncles. The highlight was getting to watch the kids participate in the Ram & Calf Scramble where hoards of kids chased after a sheep and calf with a ribbon tied around it. Maeli, Milo, & their cousin Zaya participated in the Ram Scramble which came to an abrupt end when one of the parents got too excited and pulled the ribbon off the ram. This parental faux pas ended up becoming a big topic of conversation throughout the night.

The night ended with a great fireworks show at the rodeo grounds. Cooley was in awe with the fireworks, Milo was cautiously interested, and Maeli would occasionally let out a blood-curdling scream when the fireworks blasted into the sky. 

The night ended with an exciting round of Beanboozled on the way home to the house. The kids' reactions to the disgusting jelly beans were priceless. I don't even remember the last time I laughed that hard. From the beginning to the end, this 4th of July was a success!!
