We were very excited to see our cousins (my cousin Michael Young & family, on the Hamel side) from Alaska as they came for a weekend in Orlando. They flew his mom, my aunt, Bridget Hamel down from Ohio, so my dad got to visit with his sister too. Plus all the kids got to meet cousins they haven't met yet! It was funny to see how alike they were.
Almost got a serious one. 
Cousins, aunts, and uncles. 
Cousins, second cousins, or first cousins once removed, and third cousins, or twice removed... we tried for hours to figure it out and finally did, but I'm not sure we got it right. :)  Here's a chart if you're keeping track at home. :) 
Let's try L to R. Matt, Lizzy, Michael, Caleb, Tamara, Kira, Bridget, Seth, Kathy, Josh, Chuck, Margie, Allen.
Cousins. At least that one was easy. :) 
We think this is the last time all the cousins were together. 2000! We were babies. :) 
It was so great to catch up with some and meet others for the first time! Hopefully soon we'll work our way up to Alaska to visit them there.

Garden of the Gods

Garden of the Gods is a beautiful (and free!) city park, right in Colorado Springs.
Gorgeous rocks just jut up from nowhere, right in town. 
Kissing Camels. :) 
Yes, he's carrying a gnome through the park! 
Looks like it's storming on top of Pike's Peak. 
The visitor center has pet dinosaurs! :) 
So cool. 
Lots of climbers and lots of routes here. 
Balanced Rock, right beside the road. 
Ryan unbalanced it of course!

Telluride, CO

We took a gorgeous drive down to explore Telluride, Colorado. It's a gorgeous ski town that is even beautiful in the summer, surrounded by the Rockies still sporting snow in June. Because of the slopes, you take their free gondolas from place to place. They were quite fun as we dove down into the canyon.
We hiked all the way to *that* waterfall. 
Then explored the town more.
Seems all Colorado towns have climbing rocks for fun. 
The town was very cute!
So pretty tucked in there.

Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park

The Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park was a quick, but beautiful visit. It's a huge gorge carved by the Gunnison River with steep, black, painted cliffs. It's a crazy kayaking trip too, but we came during the off season (summer).
