Day 4 - Rocky Mtn National Park & Boulder County Fair

Today we had an early start.  The kids were at the bus by 7:30am to depart to Rocky Mountain National Park.  The bus ride gave the kids a chance to sleep a bit more; they are all very tired, but unwilling to admit it.  They arrived at the Alpine Visitor's Center by 11am.  It was cool and windy, but beautiful.  What a sight from above the treeline.

After lunch and shopping the town of Estes Park, there was another long busride (i.e. nap time) back into Boulder for the county fair.  The fair had farm animals, food stalls and carnival rides.

The night ended at the rodeo; bullriding was fun to watch, but the clown getting upended was a close second.  Now to home, bath and bed.  Soccer tournament tomorrow.  Yata!
