We had about 2 minutes of tears at the Denver airport - just enough to upset the parents - before the girls once again became Papa's good little travelers.  As we have mentioned before we are taking the girls with us from Colorado to California.  We have a loosely planned  two week itinerary and will try to do some sight seeing along the way.  

Our first few days were spent in Colorado.  After leaving Denver we headed to Canon City.  We had planned on taking in the Royal Gorge sites but the girls were having so much fun at the playground in the campground that we didn't have the heart to take them away from it ( it was a circa 1970's wooden playground with a swing, monkey bars and teeter-totter..not much to our eyes but heaven to a 7 & 9 year old ) 

Next up was a few days in Durango.  Again, we had some sightseeing planned but after a day trip to Mesa Verde - one of our all time favorite National Parks - it became abundantly clear that they aren't really at an age yet to enjoy 'nature'.  To the repeated refrain of 'when can we go to the playground and why can't we go swimming'  we've decided to change our travel plans a bit. Suffice it to say we will have less sightseeing - and more 'play time'.
