Memorial Weekend Camping Trip to Hayden, CO

Last weekend, we went camping at the Yampa River State Park west of Steamboat Springs, near Hayden, CO.  It was a great drive, and fine time camping. We were overwhelmed by the wind, and heat at some points, but among cold, some rain, some pellet snow, and some eagles...  We had a great time!

The Gang:
Tim, Amy, Cody & MaggieJon, Gretchen & Cooper Jordan & JoyVince, Joia & Murdock (h?)
The Sites:
Tim, Cody, Maggie and I stayed in our big Cabela's Elk Hunting tent, the Bighorn III. It was huge, and great. We had an electric heater for warmth since it got down to the 30s at night... Cody slept in a pack and play and Tim and I each used our cots for the first time. Super Luxurious!!!Jon, Gretch, Cooper, Jordan & Joy stayed in Jon's pop-up tent camper... which is always a dream.Vince and Joia (with Murdock on top of Joia) slept in the back of their super sweet souped up old Blazer.  The Food:

He's been in the big-kid nursery for a few weeks now.He likes to eat so many of the same things we do. Pretty much just not milk, honey, nuts or meat yet.He has his own Nalgene water bottle.

He only takes his Zantac once a day now (instead of twice daily) so his Acid Reflux is improving.He gets SO glad to see Tim. He loves his dadadadada. He squirms out of my arms with a huge grin to meet Tim at the door. He wriggles off your lap and crawls to the floor on his own. He doesn't eat in the night, just an early morning feed. He is learning to drop food on our dog's head. We don't encourage t…
