Your pictures of the Aspens are making me really excited about my trip in September. We'll be in the Durango area in the last week of September and I'm really hoping to see wonderful colours like what you've gotten. I know it can be hit and miss depending on the weather....but I'm hoping.

Love the pumpkin Duffy!! Great job!
We've loved having a fun place to go to for all of our special occasions. Estes is beautiful and the perfect small town, too, so we've been glad it's "our place."

Hopefully you'll get great fall colors this year too! I'm sure the scenery will be gorgeous regardless though.

Glad you like Pumpkin Duffy. I was proud of my handiwork

I am rooting for you two kids (I say that cause I am way older then you, not because you are kids, you are adults lol )

I hope you continue to post about your adventures, and also, you two seem to be very much each other's best friend, and it really shows.
I'm so glad you're enjoying this report! I have to admit that it's sometimes even more fun to write this one than the actual trip reports, though I thoroughly enjoy writing both.

I'll definitely continue to keep you all up to date on whatever shenanigans we get up to. Tracy and I really are best friends, and I'm glad to be able to share our life adventures with you out there.

Awh you guys are such a cute couple! I love how much these spots mean to you both and how much history is there!

I think that is the best way to live, otherwise you spend you life wondering...

That picture of the canopy of trees is amazing! It just looks so lovely there!
Stewy is definitely quite unique. We miss having her around now!

We love all of our spots in Estes and around CO, and it's just great having places with sentimental attachment to visit when we're home.

I'm glad you like the pictures. It's really a very beautiful place year-round, though we caught some especially great beauty during autumn.

Aaaawww. You're birthday is near Halloween? Happy Belated Birthday. Love the gryffindor presents.


That sounds like one incredibly lame tractor hayride. Glad you didn't pay full price for it.

You and Tracy dress-up really well.

Yep, October 28th. Thanks for the belated wishes

The hayride, while unquestionably lame, was totally fun nonetheless purely because of its lameness. I'm glad we didn't pay full price too, but at least it was funny!

Glad you like our costumes. Tracy really wanted to be a raccoon in honor of both Meeko and our raccoon friends from NYC, but we were having the hardest time finding a costume. Finally, at our third or fourth Halloween store, we found that set for less than $10. My costume, on the other hand, was just a jack-o'-lantern shirt from Target, and I think we realized when looking at the receipt a couple days later that they had forgotten to charge us for it. Made our Halloween costumes very cheap!

Glad you managed to get everything packed up in Dumbo. Really looking forward to hearing about the next part of your adventures. You got some lovely pictures of the snow. We don't get a huge amount of snow here but when it snows its causes chaos as we're really not equipped for it, we saw our first snow plough this year which was really exciting!!

We saw you guys in DCA today!! It was so weird, I had just finished telling my BF that someone on the DIS boards called Duffy a simpleton because I think that is very funny, then we start walking over the bridge away from the carnival area and there you two were!

I panicked and didn't say anything, I feel like I know you very well but you barely know me. lol.

I would do the same! Would love to have the guts to say 'hey, thanks for sharing your adventures!' but I'd be worried about coming across as some sort of looney!!

It was almost an impossible feat packing Dumbo full, and once we did, we left almost everything in there each night we were on the road (even though we knew we were risking getting broken into) just because I don't think we could have repacked it. Glad you liked seeing some snow. Obviously we haven't gotten any snow here in SoCal either. I can't imagine what people would do if it did happen! Hope you enjoy hearing about our travels out here and everything we've been doing since.

Oh my gosh, that's so exciting that we were spotted! I wish you had said hi!! If you see us again, definitely say something because we'd love to meet you.

I hope you had a great day at the parks. Weren't the weather/crowds awesome today? We went from rope drop till post-closing at the AP extra hours in Fantasyland this evening, so we're a little exhausted but had a lot of fun.

If the situation ever arises, please come up and say hi! I feel like I probably come across as some sort of looney all the time on here, so I won't think you're weird. Tracy and I were just talking about how we'd love to get to meet some of our readers now that we get to go to the parks.

Well today we are headed out to Anza Borrego for hiking, then Friday will be going to see the baby panda at the SD zoo, but Saturday night (my birthday) we'll be back and Sunday will be in the parks all day, are you guys coming Sunday??

We had an awesome park day. We did the hotel early morning hour at DCA and got to do RSR and the mater ride with very small waits, did TSMM with 0 min wait. I heard about the AP extra fantasyland hours and I was very jealous. We still haven't made it to Peter Pan.

If anyone was wondering, we did manage to meet up for a few minutes


Taylor and Tracy couldn't have been cuter or nicer. I am sorry we only had a few minutes to talk, and I also apologize if I was weird. It was our last night of the trip so we were experiencing the patented Disney exhaustion/craziness of trying to fit in everything we wanted.
