Colorado 2014: Crested Butte!!

We woke up on Tuesday morning ready to go back to Crested Butte!  We loved our quick lunch there the day before but we wanted to spend more time in the quaint town!  Our friends, Justin, Jill, Jeremy and Jenna stayed around the cabins to fish, so off we went!  

Walking around and checking out all the adorable shops!  If you're ever near Crested Butte, go!  It's such a charming town, with tons of character, cute shops, amazing food, and picturesque views all over!  Eric and I want to go back just the two of us!  

We ate lunch where they had a play area on the side for kids, full of games and trinkets!  Our kids loved it, Eric and I enjoyed the people watching from the side patio!  The pizza we all had was amazing!!

Some cute chairs we found!

After walking around to most of the shops, we went to the most delicious ice cream shop EVER!!  Third Bowl Homemade Ice Cream had so many wonderful flavors, I had the non-dairy mango cayenne fudge....hands down the best ice cream I've ever had!!  Yummy!  

The boys and I after our ice cream!

Love these three kids so much!!

On our drive we home, we decided to take a little scenic drive and stopped at the Spring Creek Reservoir!  

Will's favorite part of our trip...throwing rocks into the water!

Gorgeous view!

Our view on our drive back to the cabin!  

That night, Eric, Jack, Justin and Jeremy went camping near our cabins!  They cooked out hamburgers over the fire, talked and saw several shooting stars!  

The girls and Will, meanwhile, stayed at our cabins for dinner and had Jill and Jenna over for a Frozen movie party!  
The marmots that lived near our cabins...they weren't invited to watch the movie!

Molly, Jenna, and Will, all snuggled watching Frozen!  Jill and I talked and drank wine, awesome night!!

The next morning, the boys came home and we packed up our car to start the trip home!  Justin, Jill, Jeremy and Jenna stayed a few extra days, but we wanted to head home!  We stayed one night in Colorado Springs, just relaxing, swimming and enjoying happy hour!  We ordered room service for the first time ever and the kids LOVED it!  We saw Pike's Peak and wanted to hike in the Garden of the God's, but a huge rainstorm came through, which was why we just hung out at the hotel!

As ready as we were the get home and see Penny, we were sad to leave Colorado!  Thank you Justin, Jill, Jeremy and Jenna for inviting us!  We had a fabulous vacation!
