I have had a GREAT time this summer on vacation(s)! Here are some of my favorite pictures! We got to do lots of hiking, which I LOVE!! I'm funny about posting pictures of my family online (even though they are the cutest and most adorable children I know). So what I'm saying is...you are going to get lots of landscape photos :)
Colorado- Rocky Mountains
Capulin Volcano (I've always wanted to go to a volcano!!!!) This was amazing. It was run by the National Park Service and they only let a few cars to the top. My children became Jr. Park Rangers, and had lots of fun exploring! Once you got to the top, then there was a 1 mile trail around the top of the volcano, and then you could go down into it.
Angel Fire, New Mexico: This was such an amazing place. We went horseback riding, rode the ski lifts, and did TONS of hiking!
Minneapolis, Minn: This blue thing sticking out is the Guthrie Theater. I loved the Riverfront area. We actually stayed downtown, but spent quite a bit of time at the Riverfront (we even did hiking)! We also went to Mall of America. I LOVE to shop, but that place is HUGE!!!!
Fire Pit :) Our weather this summer has been CRAZY! Usually it is in the 100s, and it has been pretty mild! The past few nights it was cool in the evenings (I needed a sweatshirt) and we made smores on the patio :)
