Colorado - Day 3

On the third day of our vacation, we enjoyed breakfast together and then headed out to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. The kiddos snoozed on the way there and were in great moods, thank goodness! We had a picnic, after hunting and hunting for a parking spot, and then headed over to the dunes. There were TONS of people there. We didn't take into account that it was Sunday and the dunes are as close to a beach as you get in Colorado. There were big groups, birthday parties, family reunions - it was a little crazy! It was also muddy. So much so that Erin and I decided to hang back on the "sidelines" with Caroline (who was asleep in the Ergo) while Jason and Terry took Jack and Selah to play in the sand and water. The kids (and dads) had so much fun!
