We are in Colorado this week with my mom and Dennis, my sisters Stefani and Amanda, my bff Holli, and my aunt Sara and uncle Lyndy, and we are having a blast. We are staying at the YMCA Camp of the Rockies in Estes Park, CO, in a cabin that we've rented for 7 days, and it is absolutely wonderful. I love it here. We have been coming here for family vacations in the summer time ever since I can remember, and I love that even now, as an adult, I can share this amazing place with my family, friends, and child. The weather is perfect, the mountains are breathtaking, and the wildlife is fantastic. This is a place that rejuvenates my soul and brings me closer to my family and the people I love. Besides that, we get to do a lot of cool stuff that we never do at home: ride horses on a mountain, hike through the forest, climb on big boulders, raft down the rapids, paint on silk in the craft hut, and play cards as a family until late in the evenings. Here are a few pics from our trip.
