Back in Breckenridge, the kids wanted to learn how to shoot a rifle and a shotgun. Geoff took the kids to a shooting range in Dillon. He taught them about gun safety, aiming, and how to handle a rifle/gun. The enjoyed it and were actually really good shots.

Noah celebrated his 9th birthday with a Donut Hole cake! He didn't want a cake, but wanted donuts, so that is what he got. We stacked about 30 donut holes on top of 6 regular donuts. I think we all went into a sugar coma after that!

We celebrated Oktoberfest with our friends Don and Kristi DesFosses and their son Christopher.
Main Street in Breckenridge had lots of beer, food, music and some activities that the kids could enjoy.

We couldn't believe that Fall was happening so quickly. We felt we had just left the summer heat in Mexico and now the leaves are changing and the weather is starting to get cool.

We knew our time was coming to get back to the boat, since it was now snowing in Breckenridge!
We cannot believe we went from Summer, Fall and now Winter so quickly! What a weather change.
We sure are glad that we didn't swelter in the summer heat and humidity in Guaymas and got to experience 3 season changes with our family! It was beautiful.
