I have always been passionate about designing and making meaningful gifts and keepsakes and was very fortunate to able to start my own business. Lauren Nicole Gifts (name after my niece) was started in 2004 and was a great way for me to have my own business, but still move around as an Army wife. My husband recently retired from the Army and we are now permanently located in Ouray, Colorado

More Vacaton Photos from Colorado

I am finally getting through all of the pictures we took. This one is one of Bear and Bailey traveling in the back seat of the truck

Here is a picture of Ouray, favorite place!

We went hiking and got lost. My husband was really happy to find this sign!!

We got to go to the Ouray 4th of July water fight. They have done this every year since they had horse-drawn fire trucks. It used to be a competition between two mountain towns; Silverton and Ouray. At first I was disappointed because we got there late and we couldn't see through all the people. After the first water fight most people were more than willing to give up the good spots because they were so wet and cold.

This sign isn't worn out from weather...those are bear claw marks all over it.

This is why you have to respect the mountains. This truck went off the road a few weeks ago and crashed into a canyon. No one was hurt and the driver got out before it went down. They still haven't figured out the whole story yet.

The deer in Ouray are pretty aggressive and not really scared of people. They just stand around and stare at you (and pose for pictures).

Bailey spent quite a bit of time smelling these flowers. Of course, right after I took the picture he peed all over them. I like how he kind of blends in with the rocks.
