Breckenridge family vacation (day six)

The bikes we rented for yesterday's trail ride were for 24 hours and we kept driving by this free bike park that looked really neat, so we thought we'd all go and check it out.
Dominic, Nathan and Lexi.
So that's how you're supposed to do it!
We soon realized that we're more "coasting down a paved trail" than we are "BMX freestyle," so we decided to do yesterday's trail ride again.
Leslie and I don't even own bikes, but this sure made us want to.
Jack was even more of a pro today than he was yesterday.

Three billy goats gruff. We estimated these were about 30 feet away.
Colorado's state motto should be, "Pictures don't do it justice."
Besides the amazing scenery and the bike ride itself, we also really liked getting to do a special activity with just Jack, that we wouldn't be able to do with Landon.
Toward the end, we also found this abandoned mine that we didn't see yesterday.
Back at the house, a deer was having an afternoon snack. This shot was taken from our deck.
It's become our tradition that one night of our vacation is "adult night out," so Lexi stayed home with the boys. Thanks Lexi!
Skye and her two aunts, in line to get an after-dinner dessert crepe.
And in just a month, Schuyler leaves for college in Alabama. I'm so glad we get to spend this time together now.
