Grand Lake, Colorado | Rocky Mountain National Park

A 3-hour drive through Rocky Mountain National Park isn’t exactly the easiest thing to do with kids.  I guess you can say that about a lot of things! We prepared ourselves with bags of goldfish, apple juice, and planned stops throughout the day. Estes Park is about midway from Boulder to Grand Lake, and we planned on eating lunch there and letting everyone burn off some energy. By the time we arrived in Grand Lake, it was nap time. Nick got the beds ready as fast as possible and we put them down! We have a strict bedtime ritual (at home and on vacation) and it’s allowed us to fairly easily put them both down in new places; at least the majority of the time. Knock on wood…

Here’s what we use for their travel, sleeping arrangements: Travel crib for Atlas & toddler air mattress (with rails!!) for Kennedy.

In Grand Lake, we explored and hiked all over. Nick carried Atlas around in the hiking backpack and he loved bouncing around. We went to Chris & Mary’s gorgeous wedding which overlooked beautiful Grand Lake. It was a perfect day and the kids had a blast visiting with family and dancing their hearts out. I did too :)

We drove all over Grand Lake and Rocky Mountain National Park setting up pictures whenever we saw a beautiful backdrop…which was the whole time. Traveling with 2 small kids isn’t the easiest thing to do, but it’s worth it to create these family memories together.
