I wanted to post a list of some of the cool things there are to do with your family here in SW Colorado--- but then I got to thinking why limit it to just my tiny part of the world.

So here's the new plan.
I'll go ahead and list some of the cool things I'm planning/hoping to do with my family this summer---
and I invite you all to post some of the cool things to do where you all live.

if nothing else it might give ya all an idea what to do with your own kids this summer?

First on my list of things to try comes from
SJMA and their Summer Ed hikes

Arborglyphs in Beaver Meadows
June 21 Time TBD

Purgatory Guided Nature Hikes
Tuesday & Thursdays
10 am—12 pm
June 10—August 14

Butterflies & Flowers at Cascade
June 29 9:30 am—12 pm

Farmer Cabin Family Fun Day
July 19 9 am — 1 pm

Edible Plants

Then of course Mesa Verde is only a ten minute drive from the new house and were going to spend a lot of time exploring that.

Now this years big trip and the one that has me giggly as a school boy is a ride on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gage Railroad

Believe it or not I grew up in this part of the world and I've never been for a ride on the train. My excuse for doing it now is to take my daughters but I'm more excited about going than they are.

BTW we signed up for the Durango Blues Train ride...Yup they have 2 live bands playing blues and bluegrass while we ride through the mountains. we're on the Saturday train but if you miss this weekend their doing it again in August.

Okay I've shown you mine--- Now it's time for you to show me yours!
Come on now---Give us a peek---

Ya know, my daughter's have never seen the ocean--- or been to the UK.
I bet they would Love Blackpool

I'm sure they'll love your fish & chips... but there's going to be a lot of giggling going on when I try to explain about Bangers and Mash...

I havent been to Mesa Verde since I was a kid! Amazing place. I have heard in recent years they dont let you in nearly as many of the nooks and kivas...

Hersheypark tickets are already paid for.
We were thinking about taking a train back to the Plains for my 20th High school reunion, but this morning I woke up to the girlfriend pulling the trigger on a week on a quiet little part of the Jersey Shore. So isolated you can have fires and dogs on the beach.
Two scout camps, one boy, one girl.
Fireworks and Fountains at Longwood Gardens
I forget the whole list!
And a whole lotta campfires in the yard.
