Snowmass Village, Colorado

We are avid fans of Snowmass Village, Colorado.  It's about 10 minutes from Aspen, and one of the most beautiful places on earth.  Our dear friends, the Bultmans, live there, but also have a house in Grand Junction, where we go for Memorial Day.  Recently they upgraded to a 3 bedroom condo, so now we have a room to stay in when we visit.  That meant a trip this summer to get out of the heat!

 Clara - about to get very muddy.
 Josh and William playing with the rocks.
 My favorite Ms. Ginny!
 We took William and Clara on a walkabout.  Josh had a headache from the altitude, so he didn't come along.  We walked up a little trail and ended up seeing a whole bunch of cool stuff.
 I love this girl!
 We ended up at a stream that was just lovely.
 I love this picture - I don't remember what they were talking about, but it was clearly a great debate.  Ginny is fantastic about asking William questions to make him think.

 I did manage to get a picture of the two of them, although they were reluctant about it.
 The rest of the time, they played in the field behind the condo with the dogs and the neighbor kids.  It was great for them to be able to be outside so much and just PLAY.

On the way home, we saw the American Idol tour bus.  They were having auditions in Grand Junction and happened to be at the park we stopped at for lunch.
