The Great Sand Dunes!

We took a little weekend trip to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. 
It was incredible!

Friday:
Driving in-- First look at the dunes.






After some exploring, we decided to head to the hotel for naps while a storm rolled through.


Then, we went back!


After dinner, we put the girls to bed and Ben and I sat on the porch to watch the sunset.
It was incredible!


Saturday:
Sunrise wasn't so shabby either.

We went for a little hike,


and then to the dunes to claim our spot for the day.
It was perfect.

Clementine took a little nap while Alice played.

Then, our friends arrived!!!

The dads and babies.

The girls played in the sand and water for HOURS!
The guys played frisbee. (That's Ben.)

(I stole some pictures from Katie and Carey since 
I'm terrible at taking them when others are around. Weird.)


Saturday night, we all put our kids in bed and sat outside.
We laughed for hours!!
It was a blast!

Sunday:
We played at the dunes for awhile before packing up and heading home.

We will be back FOR SURE!
It was a perfect little trip.

Thank you, Klenkes and Kleibers, for joining us!

We just did this last weekend!!! It was so much fun! I think we stayed at the same place as you... except we stayed in the little cabins. Great views of the dunes! Hope we get to see you all sometime this summer. -The Siemens Family
