Beautiful Vail

A few days ago we took a trip up to Vail while Papa and Nana were here visiting. It was absolutely beautiful up there and we had a wonderful day trip. We walked around the village and took a gondola ride up to the top of the hill (roughly 11,000 feet) and took in some of the most beautiful views I've ever seen. We have to come back for the changing of the leaves in a few weeks.

Then much to our surprise Andrew wanted to ride this trampoline bungee ride at the top of the mountain. Now if you know Andrew you know how reserved he is and he is NOT a daredevil. When he saw this contraption he ran over to it and kept saying how he wanted to ride it. We all thought "ya right, wait until he's strapped in." I mean we are talking about the kid I took to the zoo a few months ago and wouldn't ride a horse on the carousel, he likes the bench. He got strapped in and had a worried look on his face but as soon as he started bouncing and realized he wasn't going to get hurt a smile never left his face. Then he wouldn't leave us alone until we let him go a second time. Then get this.... he did two flips!! Who is this child and what have you done with my baby? We were so proud of him that he stepped out of his comfort zone and really let loose. He is really growing up and getting so big. sniff. sniff.

Here are some pics from our great day at Vail.
