Cooper and I took our first mother/son trip to visit my best friend Nicole and her family in Erie, Colorado. It was so much fun to travel with Cooper. I loved taking the time to see what he was experiencing 1:1 through the airport, on the plane and throughout this travel adventure. We went to the rodeo, Denver Zoo, roasted marshmallows and even enjoyed a snow day all in one weekend!
Checking out Nicole’s new house and their super cool fire pit. Having s’mores too was a bonus.
The rodeo is a fantastic event. I have been once before with Nicole and her boys. In addition to the horse show and watching the cowboys/girls in their different events, they fill the area with all sorts of vehicles and western themed sales booths.
This is a tradition photo from my first visit. The whole crew, only last time Nicole and I had beers in our hands and her boys had cotton candy 🙂
Probably my most favorite part of the trip was coming to bed to see this snuggly guy each night. I loved sharing a bed with him and waking up to his snuggles in the morning. Cooper sleeps just like me, very still and soundly so we are excellent bed sharing buddies.
Almost on demand, after a couple of days of fun in Erie, the clouds gave us snow for the last day. Cooper experienced shoveling with Brian and Nicole and we went sledding at a near by library hill. Cooper still sleds with a huge smile and his eyes tightly shut, but loves every minute of it.
While we were in Colorado, Rob and Nicholas had lots of bonding time including a couple of flights to fun destinations in the area.
