Cooper wanted to take some photos - Lauren and I

Of course we have to toss rocks and sticks into the lake
And also wade in....
We made it to land
After playing around for a little, we headed back to the campground at 12:45 Getting there,we see several people setting up camp. Sadly it seems that the 1pm check in, is a guideline not a rule. Not to be deterred, we headed toward Nederland. Knowing there was a campground nearby we headed that way. Thankfully we made it to Gorden's Gulch and found a great place to stay.
Again, Cooper wanted to take a few more pics, but it worked out since I have pics of the campground
Lots of rocks to climb on.

After we set up camp, I asked the kids if they wanted to head back to the lake, or try a few local hikes that I knew about. But the kids just wanted to play around the campground. Worked out well for me to be able to sit and relax while they had a great time exploring. We headed into Nederland to ride the carousel, and meet Joel for dinner. After dinner headed back to the campground. We built a fire and just enjoyed the beautiful place.
Carousel of Happiness - of course we have to ride the cow
And the donkey
We had a great time, and were glad to get the chance to enjoy the great outdoors. Since we only have a few weeks until school starts it might be hard to get back out again, but I hope we can at least get one more night out under the stars.
