The Goodson's do Colorado

As promised, here are the pics from when Mom and Dad came out to see us a few weeks ago. They arrived on Friday evening, and once Allison and I had both left work for the day, we all headed up to Beaver Creek for the weekend.

Saturday was a sleep in day. When we all finally arose, Allison biked around Beaver Creek for the afternoon, and Mom, Dad, and I played golf at the Cordillera Mountain Course, just outside Beaver Creek. The weather was not good - it rained a little bit and was overcast the entire afternoon. But we all had a great time. Here are some pics from golf:

We had a great dinner Saturday night and prepared for another exciting day on Sunday. We woke up early and headed to Minturn, Colorado, where we had hooked up with a fly fishing service to take us all fishing. They took us to the Eagle River, and of course, I was the only one who didnt catch a fish. We all had a great time, especially Mom (who fell in)...

And this is after Mom fell in...

Of course none of us saw her fall in, but it was hilarious to hear about.

We went back to Boulder that night. Mom and Dad stayed there until Wednesday. We went to a baseball game Tuesday night and saw the Rockies play the Diamondbacks. Randy Johnson pitched for the Diamondbacks that night - which was really neat to see.

Allison took Mom and Dad up to Rocky Mountain National Park one of the days as well. They got some great pics while they were up there.

David came in on Tuesday night and went with Mom and Dad to Colorado Springs on Wednesday. Allison and I met up with them that weekend. We stayed at The Broadmoor Hotel, a really nice hotel there in Colorado Springs.

We didnt get a lot of pictures while we were there. Dad, David, and I played golf at the East Course at the Broadmoor, where a week before, the US Senior Open was played. It was raining that day and so we didn't get to finish. But the course was prestine to say the least.

We had a great time seeing them that week and were so glad they got to come out to see us.

We just got back from a place 'where the beer flows like wine' - so there will be more pictures to come!!
