The kids did great during the 14 hour drive. We had a hard time coordinating all of our stops with the 3 kids, but by the end we were pretty good at it. We also started rationing drinks. We spent the night at the Embassy Suites, a.k.a. The Colorado Hotel and then drove up the mountain the next day. Our friends, The Younce’s, joined us for an amazing week.
We went to a rodeo the first night we were there. In 2008, we went to this same rodeo, and Trent entered as a rookie Mutton Buster as an almost 3 yr. old. This year, Trent decided to add a second Mutton Bustin ride to his resume.
