My daughter Corrie, her husband Brian, and my adorable grandchildren, Mara and Jonathan, are on vacation near Aspen, CO. So of course I'm here too! One of the first things we did was go whitewater rafting in Glenwood Canyon. The first 2 miles of the trip was too rough for Jonathan, so Phil and I babysat.
It's a good thing these life jackets come with a handle!
Then we all got to go on the last 7 miles. Mara's in there somewhere - I think she was hiding on the floor of the boat.
There were some small rapids on that part of the ride too. If you listen carefully you can hear Jonathan saying "Big Bumpies." Mara is busy protecting her raisins.
One evening we went to a local rodeo in Carbondale. Not up to par with Cheyenne, but it was lots of fun.
Jonathan enjoyed being a cowboy.
They had some events at this rodeo that I had never seen before. One was called "Mutton Busters," where kids under 50 pounds would hang on to the backs of sheep.
