Happy 4th of July!!

I was so happy we were able to celebrate the 4th of July this year in Lake City. I have been telling the hubs about how much I love it for years!! And even more exciting... some of our favorite family friends from Oklahoma were in town for the festivities!! 

We began the morning at the local parade...
Ballerina, Colt and Lil Sam.
I swear we will see these 2 on their way to prom together some day.
Baby Dee got in on the parade action also!!

Ballerina was such a good girl during the parade. She watched and laughed and pointed and most importantly... collected a big bag of candy!! (That I took away... hahaha mean mommy)

After the parade there was a little park time with daddy...

Then all the friends headed to my parents cabin for some goooooood food!!

Of course we attempted to take a pic of all the kids... hahahahaha

Very fun day! So grateful for such wonderful family and friends!!


Lake City!!

A quick photo blast from the mountains!!

Lake City supplied us with several things that were very beneficial to our trip... Coffee Shop being #1 and a PARK!! We went to the park every day!!

Even brother had fun at the park!
We had many a picnic while in the mountains. Ballerina loved every single one!

Dee & Pappy...

Every girl needs a fly fishing shirt and camo hat!!
Learning to "clink" or cheers!
One day there was a bear safety lesson at the park... so naturally we had to attend.

Eating out with a 2 year old is always a challenge.
Lunch at the park one day with Tutu & Janice!
Nothing like a little roast beef sandy... Mmmm

One of the biggest highlights of our trip was dinner on top of Gold Mountain. 
Simply breathtaking!

Yes, we put our 2 year old and 4 month old on the mountain side alone for photo op!

It was a great vacay... So happy we were able to make it up to the mountains!!


Road Trippin'

Ever since Brian and I began dating we have been trying to get to my parents little fishing cabin in Lake City, CO. It was just impossible from NYC. This year... we FINALLY made it happen. 

Nothing like a road trip with a 4 month old and 2 year old. Woooooooo!

The plan was to leave late afternoon, stop a few hours later and eat dinner and then everyone get into PJs and sleep the next 5 hours in the car before we stop. Hoping to get the majority of the trip out of the way while the kids sleep and making Day 2 of the trip much easier. 
Things started off great. We stopped in some crazy small town, ate at Dairy Queen and changed clothes. Then... Dee fell asleep and someone else... well... She was WAY TOO EXCITED!
playing with her pillow.     

She watched Frozen, Tinkerbell and Annie... then... we turned off the iPad and she talked and talked and talked. She finally fell asleep about 10pm! Never whined or misbehaved.  It was pretty funny.
Crazy girl sleeps.

We checked into our hotel, fed the baby, crazy ol Samantha woke up and took a bath and then at midnight... we all crashed!! 

The next day, we decided to let Sammie take a little swim in the hotel before heading out again. Hoping to get her all tuckered out before strapping her down for 5 hours.

Loving my little travel buddies!!
