  I have been seeing these all over the web and want to make one for my family.  I have a list of about 20 things we can do, but would like your help in coming up with more ideas.  Any ideas are welcome but my kids are young (DD 4yrs& DS 2yrs) and I'm 6 months pregnant so that limits some of the activities we can do.

Thanks for your ideas!

You should drive up to the top of Mt Evans. It's the highest paved road in America.

I'm going to ask DD for ideas in the morning. She'll probably have a few ideas I didn't think of. What did your girls come up with?

We have done that many times :) When DH and I first got married we lived in Blackhawk and Idaho Springs....he helped build road through there. It's so pretty!
