First I want to share a couple of the photos I took on our Cog Train trip up to the top of Pikes Peak this last weekend. My father in law recently turned 70 and his love is trains. This was definitely a fun one. We were at prime time for seeing the aspens turn color which was a huge bonus. What a magnificent site. The last time I was at the top of Pikes Peak was when I was a little girl, I'm guessing maybe 8 or 9, and this time I was awestruck at the views all around me as they truly show the beauty of God's creation. I always think how much fun he must have had planning all this amazing landscape out. The only disappointment of the day was the haze that covered everything from the fires happening in the Northwest. The smoke just hung in the air and even though the sun was out the clarity of the view was a little muted.
|Love when I get a good picture of my sons with me.|
|He is really not as bored as he looks!|

|My cute Father and Mother in Law. Couldn't ask for better ones.|
|And the typical teenager... beauty all around but electronics prevail.|
|This was taken out of the back window of the train so the glare is a bit of a pain, but don't you just love the color??|
That's it. Gorgeous, huh?? Now it's time for the giveaway. I have been checking out the fall lines and thinking these are pics that need to be scrapped right away! I have fallen in love with the Simple Stories Harvest Lane and the Lily Bee Autumn Spice lines. I couldn't find the Lily Bee at my local scrap store but I did fine the Harvest Lane and am ready to take on these beautiful picks. Lucky you, I happened to pick up an extra 6x6 Harvest Lane pad as well as some other fall related goodies that I am ready to give away to one fabulous follower!
