Rocky Mountains!

Hello there! It has been a little while. That would be because we’ve been quite busy lately. A few weekends ago was Dave’s sister’s wedding, so we spend the extended weekend away in Ohio. We came back for a few days and then it was off again.. this time to Colorado for 5 days to celebrate the wedding of one of Dave’s good friend’s from college. We stayed in Denver for a few days and then headed off to the mountains (Estes Park).

I think pictures show our trip the best.. so here you are (and if you think this is a lot of pictures, just keep in mind I picked out the best from over 500 pictures).

First are the flowers… I love pictures of flowers. We both do. We have been collecting pictures of flowers so we can use some of the good ones as decorations for the duplex we are moving to soon.

This place had the awesome-ist toasted almond ice cream… that was a good welcome to Denver. ­čÖé

Boys at the bachelor party. They went up to Boulder for some “top secret” and/or dangerous lakeside activities… ­čÖé

The┬áreservoir they went to for the bachelor party…

We went to the┬árehearsal… this is where the wedding was… can you say beautiful!

Between the rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner we climbed a small mountain. We couldn’t figure out how to get to the very top, as it was all boulders, but we got pretty far…

Dave climbing…

This is how far we made it up this one….

That night was the rehearsal dinner. These are our good friends Anthony and Rachel. They were the first from Dave’s group of friends to get married… sadly we don’t get to see them often enough!

The guys got frisbees as part of their wedding party gifts… so some Ultimate was in order…

woo!

I took my feet a walkin’ and went exploring a little…

Of course the boys had to get in a power stance before the night was over…

Random cool picture I like…

Some of the boys at the wedding…

I realized later I have no pictures of the actual wedding.. ah well.

Sam!!

Sam and I.. waiting for the receiving line..

Group shot after breakfast Monday morning, before Anthony and Rachel left to go home.

The last thing we (Dave, Sam and I) did before we headed back to Denver to catch our plane home was go for a 1/2 day hike in the mountains. Sadly, we didn’t have enough time to make it to the very top of Flat Top Mountain… but we got pretty darn close. It was really awesome and we both hope to be able to visit the Rockies again some day!

My awesome little brothers are visiting us right now (yes I know.. that is 5 people and a dog in our tiny apartment, but ah well) for this past week and the next… so hopefully I’ll get some pictures of that up at some point. We are heading out tomorrow to go visit Dave’s grandma and go camping on her property for the weekend- we are all looking forward to it! ­čÖé

Adios for now!

Day 26.

Woke up this morning to this on my computer. ­čÖé

Hooray! A two-hour delay means no morning preschool for me. Thankfully, Dave’s 8am class was canceled last night, so we both got to sleep in a bit! Perfect for me, since I’ve got a little bit of a head cold that I’m trying to kick.

Able to sleep in, and take my time eating a hot breakfast too. Imagine that… ­čÖé
