1st EVER Family Vacation, Part 2

Destination:Train to Silverton, CO

It was a 3 hour train ride through the mountains and most beautiful country I have ever seen. It would have taken us 45 min to drive to Silverton. 

We sat in an open car, the fresh air was refreshing. The views were breath taking.

At one point we were riding along a straight drop off with the river running down below. We crossed a short bridge that had a 400 foot drop off on both sides. 

Once we got to Silverton (sorry, only have iPhone pictures) we had lunch and we had planned to walk around the town but it was raining so we shopped a little and then sat under a overhand until it was time to board the train back to Durango.

After eating at a BBQ place in Silverton.... that's supposed to be a pig?!

A guy sitting next to us that the boys, especially Eli, became best buds on the train ride back to Durango.

1st EVER Family Vacation, Part 1

It was our first trip, just the five of us.

We didn't have a lot of time and our funds were limited, but we knew we would cherish the memories, what ever we did. We just needed to do something away from our everyday environment.

So we picked a place, found a hotel with a pool and planned some activities.

Destination: Durango, CO

It was supposed to be a 6 hr road trip. We got everyone loaded up and headed out. It only took us 8 hours to get there...

Of course, that included our hour long picnic about half way there. And a little playtime relief.
