Friday, the Last Day

Well, at the cabin that is. It was a delightful day. We worked on packing up some in the morning, and then a few of us needed to get better Internet access (you all did get a post that Friday!), and some went to the park. Then, after lunch, it was back to the ponds for most. Mom and I went on the Colorado trail for a little over an hour, which was a brisk-last-day-in-Colorado-hike, before joining the rest.

Melanie came out on the ponds, too, while Nathan stayed with the little girls who were napping. We had a great time with her.

Out on the ponds for the final time.

A game of tag was being played, and it was a lively one.

Later, when the girls were up, I sat with Bethany on land while Nathan, Melanie, and Abby went canoeing.

Playground time!


Our cabin

Packin' up time. Abby was Uncle John's helper, which she thoroughly enjoyed.

Okay, so I'm the one who wanted a group picture. There didn't end up being a good time on our hikes, so, come Friday, I realized that picture hadn't happened. Everyone went to extra effort that evening to get ready for the shot, and thank you, Family!

And thus ends the Colorado series. It was a beautiful time away–among the mountains, aspen trees, flowing mountain streams, and best of all, with family.


“I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.”

  1. I love that group picture, and the one of you ( Sarah) canoeing! I remember I had a dress like the one Abby has in the group shot, when I was about 8 or so.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful photos, sweet Sarah! I especially enjoyed the last photo of the entire family. πŸ™‚ What a special time of fellowship as you enjoyed God’s beautiful creation! Thanks again—I always enjoy my “travels with the Maxwell family”! πŸ˜‰

  3. It is so good to see Abby wearing a sun hat and sunglasses when she’s outside! We live at about 6000 feet elevation in Colorado, and I know full well the toll the sun can take here because of the thin air and closer proximity.

    We need to spend more time traveling in our beautiful state. With gas over $3.50 per gallon, we just don’t do it like we used to. Thanks for showing me the beauty of my home!

  4. So good to see and group picture of you all. Good to see Melanie–she looks beautiful as always and she and Nathan have adorable little girls. What a wonderful family vacation you shared together. Very special time for you all.

    Blessings, Mrs. Mari

  5. I love that last picture of the whole group, what a troop you are!
    Thanks so much for the sharing of your entire adventure!

  6. So very glad y’all got to enjoy God’s creation all together. πŸ™‚ What a huge blessing that was, I’m sure. Thanks for the posts and the pictures. Y’all are such a beautiful family. πŸ™‚

  7. Cute pictures! I like the one of Anna on the playground. Great picture of Melanie in the kayak. I like the family group shot the best! Enjoy your time at home!
