4th Annual Kraft Family Vacation: Roadtrip to Durango

Hi everyone!

We’ve just returned from our 4th annual family vacation!

This year we chose Durango, Colorado as our mountain destination – we alternate beaches and mountains, and this year was a mountain year.

The drive from Texas to Colorado was just over 13 hours, so we looked for a few things to do along the way. We left late Wednesday night after Jordan got off work and drove for about 4 hours, stopping overnight in Childress, TX. In the morning we attempted to stop at Cadillac Ranch outside Amarillo, however, the rain had made things a muddy mess so we just cruised by and viewed the cars from the frontage road.

Our second day of travel we planned to stop for lunch in Santa Fe, one of our favorite cities!

We had a lovely (quick!) lunch at The Shed in Santa Fe, who did a great job of getting food to the kids ASAP before they could tear the place down. Then we took a walk around the city to let everyone stretch their legs before getting back in the car for the rest of our journey.

Our check-in time was after 4pm, so we had a little extra time to kill before we headed to our lodgings. Jordan found a trailhead for us to take the kids on a short hike.

After the hike, we headed over for check in.

Since Gma and Gpa Kraft are now full-timing in their RV (@rvfomo.life) and Morgan and Jewels are full-timing in their converted van (@anamericanjedi) we chose to stay at Blue Spruce RV Park & Cabins just outside of Durango. Our family stayed in a really cute tiny cabin (Twilight Cabin #4), and the rest of the family was able to park in RV hook-ups just a few hundred feet from us. The park was really nice and laid back, and very family friendly.

The kids had a great time playing at the playground on-site with Gma and Gpa Kraft.

They also enjoyed cooking out and playing at the RV.

After a long day of travel, we were happy to call it a night! Lots of adventures ahead!
