Holiday Vacation

We left the day after Christmas for Wichita to attend Dad’s cousin’s wedding. We spent two nights there, then headed to Great Bend one night before waking up bright and early to get on the road to Estes Park, Colorado the next day.

At the wedding!

Plenty of elk to greet us as we entered Estes Park.

I wanted to swing by the Stanley on our way out of town. This little lady was not feeling it.

Elin drove the last leg of the trip.

We actually cut our time in Estes short. They were predicting bad weather in both Colorado and home so we hit the road a day early. Glad we did as they closed I-70 the following day.

It was a wonderful trip and a great break from reality! Happy 2015 everyone!
