 After 102 days were reunited again! And hopefully no more lengthy separations in the future!
 We celebrated the end of deployments with a family trip to Vail. As you can see, it's absolutely gorgeous. Lush and green with flowers blooming everywhere.
 We went on our first ever family bike ride! Evie rode in the burley trailer and Gabe rode his bike about 3 miles!

 Working hard up the hill!
 Pirate ship Park

 The Gore Creek runs right through town

 No car traffic allowed. Pedestrian/bike traffic only. The town was immaculate, you literally could eat off the brick roads. We felt like we were transported to a swiss village.

 Different colors of columbine all over

 Gondola ride

 We had a picnic up at 10,000 feet

 Out to dinner

 Pretty girl

 Blue Moose Pizza

 Hanging Lake. Yes the water is naturally that color!

 Gabe spotted a trout

It was a steep little hike. About 1000 ft climb over 1.25 miles.
