Burns Family Vacation

In June, we spent the week with Clint's family in Buena Vista, Colorado at Young Life's Trail West Lodge.  I'll let the pictures do most of the talking, but we had a great time.  I went far enough to say that this was the best Burns family vacation to date--here's why--the camp staff plan all of your activities and meals for you.  All you have to do is show up.  Isn't that great!?!?  In past vacations, that's where all the stress comes from--trying to plan meals and activities.  Since that was taken away, the time together was much more meaningful and much less stressful! 
 Graham and Owen LOVED the watermelon-I'm pretty sure that's all Graham ate that entire meal.
 This happened a lot--don't you wish you were small enough to climb up in Clint's lap and have him read you a story?  These boys were in heaven. 
 Clint rode a horse one morning to our "cowboy breakfast."  Graham was ENTHRALLED by the horse.  Luckily, G got to ride one later that day too.
 Our sweet family at the Cowboy Breakfast.
 The entire Burns clan.
 Graham is waving to the horse he's about to ride.  He would say, "Hi Neigh (horse).
 He was a little skeptical at first, but loved his time riding, Cheese the Horse. 
 A little family game of Frisbee golf in the Aspen grove. 
 Even Graham got to join in the fun-I promise he's having more fun than it looks!
Lots of fun swimming time
 And one of the best parts----A Square Dance!  So fun!  Yes, I dressed up.  Boots and all, y'all. 
 Graham chowed down on some corn.
 Fun little park for the kids to explore.
And the family on one of the last nights.  Can you tell I'm the shortest out of the bunch??? Not pictured are our river rafting day (Clint stayed behind with the kids) and our ropes course day.  I got to zip line on the ropes course and it was SO MUCH FUN.  All in all-a great family vacation.  Seriously, look up Trail West Camp and spend some time there if you can!
