On our last morning in Colorado, I found the scavenger hunt sheets I had printed off at home while I was packing us up to leave. So, the boys went outside with lists and pens in hand to find all (or most of) the items.
The list was actually intended for the lake house, so a few items (like lizards, shells, and deer) were impossible to find.
But most everything else they managed.
When the scavenger hunt was as complete as we could manage, Mimi pulled out some bubbles she had bought for the boys. One last hurrah on the deck before we had to drive back to the airport for our afternoon flight.
Leaving Colorado was truly bittersweet. Bitter, because we were leaving beautiful Colorado. And sweet because we were all missing Casey/daddy. The boys did great on the return flight...my first time to fly with them by myself. Durango has a special place in our family and I'm so glad I got to show some of it to the boys. I know we'll be back.
