We drove up to Breckenridge in a day! Yes, with a baby and a dog! The dog is actually easy. And amazingly Lilleigh was a trooper! She fussed some at nap times, but other than that, she didn't even have a meltdown until bedtime when she was still stuck in her car seat - that's HUGE! I would have had a meltdown way before that...

We got to see the dog trials, where Border Collies corralled sheep. It sounds boring, but it's amazing what these dogs can be trained to do! Just take my word for it - you'll have to check it out sometime. I think my favorite part of the dog trials (which is more of a festival really because you can walk around to different events) was the agility course. Dogs participated in relay races! Just crazy! I took photos, but they don't do the event justice, so we'll skip them.
Not only did we get to see Brendon's grandparents while we were there, but we also crossed paths with his mom, my dad, and some of my Kansas family too.
Here are some photos from our trip!

By the way the double stroller in the photos is one I found at a garage sale to take up to the grandparents' house in Colorado to be used by the cousins... there's no announcement here. Just thought I'd clarify! ;)
