Did you know that in the winter some dogs lose pigmentation in their nose, and they get "snow nose?" I had never heard about this so it made me nervous when Eda's nose started changing color. It really is no problem though, I just have to be sure to put sunscreen on it so the pink skin doesn't get burned. Silly, huh?

On the second day Grandma and Grandpa were here, we went exploring Helen Hunt falls and the trails around it. Here are a few pictures from our lovely day together.

Grandma and Grandpa Howell were so kind to go out of the their way to come stay with us for a couple days as they made their way from MN to CA for the winter. They arrived at night, and the next day we drove up Pike's Peak. It provided us with wonderful views, but boy was it chilly! On the way down we found a sunny spot guarded from the wind, and had a little picnic.
|Did you know the North Pole is actually located in Colorado? ;)|
|Feeling a little cold at the peak!|
|On the way down we were able to see Big Horn Sheep!|
|I discovered yet another similarity between Jake and his Grandpa on this visit. They are both explorers.|

The Broadmoor is a beautiful hotel located near the base of Cheyenne Mountain in a wonderfully unique and luxurious community.
We had a wonderful time talking about the architecture and landscape around the hotel and surrounding neighborhood, but as usual we especially enjoyed the wildlife here in Colorado.

YUM!If you ever get the chance to go, get LOTS of pita bread... and Saganaki (flaming cheese). The presentation is almost as amazing as it tastes.
|Katlin, Lizzy and me.|
|Jake, Anthony ( Lizzy's fiance) and Ricky (Katlin's husband). They both work with Jake.|
|Jake got SO much food that not only did he enjoy it for dinner that night but he brought the leftovers to work for lunch the next 2 days.|
