Colorado Trips (to do with 13 yr old)

Figuring out where to go with your kiddo(s) can be a frustrating search and choice - whether a day trip or a vacation.
Through trial & error over the last 13 years with my son, I think we have found some fun and beautiful adventures. 

Something to keep in mind - we live in mountains of Colorado so this is collection of trips from where we live, as well I will share what we have here in Summit County, Colorado.
The following are places we have been, as well places we plan to visit with my son. As well, places I have been to that I wish my son was there because he would have loved them.
Glenwood Springs : Glenwood Canyon, Hot Springs, Adventure Park, Cycling, Camping, and Hiking Trails Galore. Carbondale and Aspen are just "up the road" from Glenwood Springs, and offer all sorts of family based activities.  Skateboard? There are 4+ Skate parks in the area: Glenwood, Carbondale, Basalt, and Aspen.

Independence Pass & Aspen/Twin Lakes : Punch …

Healthy & Happy Year : Part 5

To start, please let me apologize for my absence. Life really got away from me; too much going on, not enough hours in a day. I am sure you know what I speak of.

Where did we end...
Goals I had:
1) Daily To-Do List
2) Exercise 3-5 days a week
3) Use MyFitness Pal app, daily; help me track what I am eating, and save calories each day knowing I have a sleep-eating dissociative part. (I don't only have myself to retrain; I have varying personality parts all pulling me in different directions, each trying to get their way. Ugh!)
4) Meditate min of 3 days a week; aim for 5+

Ok, so... I am not going to try and explain away the things I have not done, but after addressing my goal list I am going to share the short story of my life the last 2-3 months.

Daily To-Do List >  Admit that I have not been the best at doing this... though I am getting much of my list done day to day. I think just having it where I can't avoid seeing it helps, like a subliminal message.

Exercise 3 to 5 Days…
