Maroon Bells Pictures




Posted by Picasa
This was my second time hiking to Crater Lake in the Maroon Bells in Aspen. It is an absolutely breathtaking place. In fact, many of the postcards that you see for Colorado have are pictures of the Maroon Bells. Last time I went, I was 8 weeks pregnant with Harrison. We got caught in a hail storm at the top of the mountain and I was sure that I was never going to meet the baby in my belly. I told Adam that I would never let him take me hiking again. Well, that didn't last very long. I made another trip with Harrison in tow, as well as 17 weeks pregnant with another baby boy. We didn't get stuck at the top in the storm, but I also got us moving back down the mountain pretty quickly once we arrived. We did get rained on, but it seemed like nothing compared to my previous near-death experience. And Harrison loved it. He loved climbing on the rocks. He thought it was the greatest. I am so glad that we are going to have another little boy to take on fun adventures like this.

Just about to croak. It has been SO long since I've seen Harrison. If y'all would let me just have him, I'd let you visit as much as you wanted. :)

That is ridiculously gorgeous and you look amazing, mandy. And your boys are so cute... I think this kid might be dark hair like Adam, just guessing...
