So before I begin the story of what happened on Monday (6/8), I have to tell a story of what happened the night before. We were staying in really neat cabins on the Colorado River in Grand Lake. We got to our cabin fairly late on Sunday night and by the time we got settled in it was around 11:00 before we went to bed. About 5 minutes after we turned off the lights I heard Matt sit up straight in bed. He said "I think there is a bat in here." Sure enough, we turned on the lights and there was a bat flying around our room. We quickly ran out of our room and slammed the door behind us thinking we could keep the bat in there and sleep out with the kids in the living room. But guess what? There was a bat out there too!!! AHHHHHH!!! I quickly started googling how to get a bat out of the while Matt grabbed a broom and tried to shoo the bat out the door. We were starting to panic but thankfully the bats went back into the ceiling with the lights on. Needless to say we slept with the lights on that night and quickly changed cabins first thing in the morning. Every vacation needs a good bat story!
After our long night with bats we had to wake up early to go on a breakfast horseback trail ride through the Continental Divide and Rocky Mountain National Park! How awesome!!!
