cutting down a christmas tree!!

i have never had a real christmas tree and also have never cut down a tree. this year i thought i would be fun to try a new tradition for our family.  we sent in for a permit and headed up the the mountains to find a tree for the girls playroom. 
so we set off and we even got to meet smokey the bear :)

headed to find the tree :)


so excited about your charlie brown tree! it was PERFECT !!

this was SUCH a fun experience and i can't wait to continue this new tradition for MANY years to come!

leaf fun!

what fun playing in the leafs together! the girls were pretty excited that our backyard trees have gotten mature enough they have started dropping a lot of leave....which in turn makes for a lot of fun!

estes day #3

day #3 we headed into town for some shopping and little festival that was going on. it was such a BEAUTIFUL day!

on our way out of town we stopped at the golf course as there are always elk there. we spotted them and just enjoyed the scenery.

across the meadow we noticed some people getting VERY close to a huge bull elk...well sure enough he did not like it and CHARGED right at them

this lady got bumped by the elk ...

and took a MAJOR faceplant

the bull was NOT happy about this lady climbing the tree

what the lady on the fence doesn't know is there is ANOTHER BULL ELK right behind her!
anyways i know it was kinda scary...but for reals people need to get a clue... these are wild animals! GIVE THEM SPACE!
that was a rather funny and entertaining way to end our trip! a memory we will never forget :)
