We went to Colorado the week of the 4th. We left Denver to head up to the mountains for the week only to realize we didn't have a key to the condo! It belongs to David's uncles family so he had someone meet him an hour away to give him the key. This is most of the family standing outside wondering "how could we get in without a key?"
We got in and the kids wanted to go fishing.

Ai Pei had never fished before and she caught the first one!  She wanted to go back every day .
 We had heard about a 5K the family could run do in WinterPark. We all got excited, especially Tate, he really wanted the tshirt. We later found out we were mistaken and it was actually WinterPark Florida! So, we got creative and decided to have our own 5K. We called it the First Annual Dilling 5K and Fun Run.
Team TCU
Matt, Emily, Ella, and Lily

Team Texas
Nana and Tate

Team CU
David's cousin Dierdra and her boyfriend Chad, AKA Grant's new best friend

Team White
David's Aunt Judy and Tony, cousins Brett and Ai Pei
Team Blue
Papo Ron, Grant, Julie and David
( we all happened to be in blue, no real meaning behind blue)

The Starting line.....Tate is serious.

After a few yards Ella wanted me to hold her hand and walk with her . We had time to stop and take a picture. We weren't really competing, just looking at the gorgeous houses on the streets around the condo.

After Brett won the race we had a waterballoon tossing contest. My
Mother in law and I were the champions of each game!

David won the watermelon contest

One night we were there David, Tate and I went on a very long hike to a river. It was beautiful !

On Tuesday morning everyone, except me, went horse back riding at the YMCA of the Rockies.

I did go fly fishing with David one day. Not my sport but he liked having me there and I didn't fall down like someone did.
I like staying dry:)

On our way home we stopped in the village of WinterPark. We rode a gondola and Tate and David rode the Alpine Slide down the mountain. Tate loved it!

Getting off the Slide. Tate said next time we come he wants to ride it all day long!
