Colorado Highlights

We spent last week exploring the mountains and beauty of Colorado.  
Precious time with our precious people.

Anders was most impressed with the "O-na-nant"at the Denver Zoo, and Lars was beyond excited to see a real garpike swimming in the aquarium.

 We hiked around a beautiful lake in Rocky Mountain National Park.

We rode the gondola up the mountain at Vail and hiked around the trails. 

Anders took his naps wherever he could.  Sweet time with big sister.

We rode a gondola across Royal Gorge.  Matt and big kids flew through the sky on the "Sky coaster" and viewed the gorge from high above, and we walked the suspension bridge back to the other side.  Finished the day with a train ride through the bottom of Royal Gorge.

A quick hike around Garden of the Gods before catching our plane back home.

Brewhouse Triathlon

A fantastic day for the Brewhouse Triathlon!  Team Bettendorf was well represented with lots of smiles and speedy times.  Hannah won her age division and set a new course record for women under 18.  Megan won the division for most flat tires (two)… Matt rescued her, twice.  
Rachel rocked her first triathlon.  Great day with friends and team BNR.
