Weekend in Steamboat

We just came back from a weekend getaway in Steamboat Springs where Mike completed his first 50K trail race up Mt. Werner. This was Cooper’s first road trip ever and Maxon’s first diaper-free road trip so we were prepared for plenty of stops… and they did not disappoint. Cooper is not thrilled to be in his car seat for extended periods of time so I spent half the time between the car seats in the back trying to entertain and soothe the little guy. Maxon is a great traveler and kept himself entertained for the most part but I think he is getting a kick out of Mommy sitting in the back seat. He also got some experience in peeing outdoors, like the side of the road (“I pee-peed on some rocks!”), in a port-o-potty on Rabbit Ears pass, and along the creek at the Loveland Valley exit on I-70. I think he was a little disappointed that Steamboat Springs was not an actual steamboat but he did get to ride up the gondola to the top of Mt. Werner (cool) and the bus to downtown (waaaay cool).
