Buena Vista Gold Rush Days

I forgot about the Gold Rush Days in Buena Vista because it over lapped with the Leadville 100 event that Joel and Clarke were working. On our way to church we saw a sign that said parade in progress so after mass we walked to main street and watched the start of the burro race. Yes, burro race. They had a lot of fun venues and games for the kids. I didn't think to bring my camera so here are a few pictures from my phone.

Evie took a ride on this crazy bungee jumping thing. She didn't weigh enough to get herself high in the air so with some help from the staff she soared quite high. We had so many people ask us how old she was and tell us they were expecting her to scream that she wanted off. She not only loved it and asked if she could go higher but she asked if she could do it again when she got off. Guess she has a little of that Smith adrenaline in her...

Ethan wasn't sure what to think which was a good thing because he was too small to take a ride.

Yes, that's Evie way too high in the air...

The kids enjoyed petting all the different animal furs. Evie knew quite a few of them.

The kids waited patiently for their turn to jump. Evie was only in it a minute before she came out and told me she had to go potty.

Having a little hot dog lunch before heading back to sunshine ranch.


  1. What fun. The bungee jump looks a lot like the one Anderson and Kevin sent pictures of.

  2. I watched one of those jumpers and about tossed my cookies on the sidewalk just thinking about it. Nice job, Evie, you brave little girl!
