Camping in Colorado--or in the wild with the Wildes

Hail, hail, the gang's all here! Laurie shows off bowl of large hail collected from back yard.

In addition to visiting with Laurie and Tyson (and Sarelle and Savannah) in their home, we went camping with them June 4-6 at Golden Gate Canyon State Park in the mountains west of Denver. Following are some photos, including a video of Sarelle doing some of her ballet moves and singing the ABC's.
