Trip to Wyoming: Ayers Natural Bridge (August 2015)

One of our final adventures on our visit to Wyoming last August, was exploring Ayers Natural Bridge with Grandpa, Grandma, and GG.  It's about a 30 minute drive east of Casper and was such an incredible site!  I had never been before and immediately fell in love with the colorful red rock formations.
There is a gorgeous river that runs right under the natural bridge, several campsites, and even a fun playground.
I LOVED all the colors!

We weren't planning on getting wet so we didn't have a swimsuit for Dax, but the second we saw that gorgeous river we knew he'd be drenched.  Luckily we had foresight enough to take off his clothes, leaving him in only a small pair of lightening McQueen undies.  He had so much fun wading out into the river with Grandpa, Grandma, GG, and Daddy.

Daxton' LOVES his GG!
They had so much fun playing and splashing in the water together.  My favorite is the far left pic below.  GG has the best "bring it on" face!

While Dax and GG were splashing each other on the side, Grandpa and Dallas had ventured out to the middle of the fast moving river.  They found large rocks to toss near each other to see whom could create the larger splashes.  It was so fun to see Dallas laugh and play with his daddy again.  Dallas loves his daddy so incredibly much.

One of my favorite shots!

I sure love that sweet boy and his silly personality!

After we finished playing in the river and exploring around the rock formations, we headed over to the playground for a picnic lunch.  Dax had so much fun playing on all the old (and rather unsafe looking) equipment while the adults ate on the grass.

After lunch Grandpa and Dax decided to explore more of the red rock in the area.  They found some fun formations to climb and ended up going back up several times.

Daddy joined them after awhile which brought out some rather interesting poses...
At least we got one cute one of the three of them together!

Not sure who chose these poses!

It was also so fun to spend time with GG!
We love her so very much, especially Daxton.
She is one of the most selfless, caring, and supportive people I've ever met.

Obsessed with climbing trees...

Since I'm usually the one behind the camera, it was nice to actually get a few pics with my little sweetheart.

After all the climbing and playing, Daxton had worked up quite the sweat and was begging to hop back in the river.  We couldn't resist seeing all that kissable skin, so we stripped him down one more time and let him run back over to the river.

Cooling off quickly before heading home...

For dinner that night we went to a yummy diner in Casper for burgers and shakes.  Grandpa and Grandma even got Daxton an entire chocolate shake for himself.  He was quite pleased with himself!

The next morning we said our sad goodbyes and drove down to Denver to catch our flight.  We gave ourselves just enough room to stop for lunch at Cafe Rio before heading to the airport.  I can never have too much Cafe Rio!

Our flight that day went well, with this little sweetheart sleeping almost all the way home.
We absolutely LOVED our trip out to Wyoming to visit Grandpa and Grandma Perkins.  We love our family so much and feel blessed to be constantly supported and surrounded by love.  We wish that we lived closer so our visits weren't so spread out, but we will take what we can get and love every minute of it!
Thanks again for the amazing trip!
We love you all dearly!
