The weather has started cooling off here in Colorado faster than I'd anticipated - autumn is seriously right around the corner! Determined to squeeze out every last bit of summer before school started, we spent the weekend at the reservoir close to our home.
Since the water is always cold, we stay until the kids start shivering but before they turn blue. Our funny routine includes putting on fleece tops and bottoms after toweling off and blasting the heat on the drive home. After the kids take a hot shower, they finish off the warming process with a nice cup of tea.
The water is quite shallow, and the children have a wonderful time. The reservoir has camping sites as well as places to grill and picnic. It's a local treasure, for sure!
