Labor Day

We had a lovely Labor Day with mine and M's parents...

After breakfast, we drove to Estes Park. We explored the old Stanley Hotel (where M and I went for our "babymoon") and had lunch there in the restaurant.

The Stanley Hotel is supposedly what inspired Stephen King to write The Shining, which inspired the film by Stanley Kubrick. While we were there, we happened to run into Jack Nicholson, who apparently stops in from time to time to mess with people... We saw him getting on the elevator, and then we saw him walking around with a cigar. Turns out, it wasn't really Jack Nicholson at all, just a really amazing look-alike who happens to live in Estes Park. So even though we didn't meet the famous actor, we did possibly meet his twin brother.

After lunch, we drove up into Rocky Mountain National Park, all the way up Trail Ridge Road. The views from the top were breathtaking... We were literally in the clouds.

We had such an amazing time with our parents that we were sad to see them go home on Tuesday. Fortunately, my mom has been staying with us, cooking delicious meals and logging some babysitting time :)
