Just an evening walk amongst the entire mosquito population of Steamboat Springs, CO.
These girls, no surprise, are getting the hang of this so quickly. Rudy has the one up on everyone, including Harbandna, when it comes to immediately passing out in the car. And Loomis just wants his little den at the moment and isn't feeling overly social like he was last week so he's good if we're good.
We are making our way back to the Denver area for some business trips, work meetings, miniature vacation, and a full month of August. To say I'm a bit relieved to be back home in Colorado seems silly but it's true. I miss the air here, and the mountain town people, and the sky. I loved Wyoming, but I think in all of our travels I will always look forward to stopping off where I feel "home" is, no matter how long it's been since we have crossed the Welcome to Colorful Colorado sign.
So... That being said, we are in Colorado and it feels nice to have the break from planning where to go next because... Well, we're home.
So tomorrow is our 42nd anniversary. We got back today from a week long trip with 26 youth and leaders. I am blessed to be married to a man who supports my craziness and blesses me to do what I do. He not only blesses me but is in it with me. I am blessed to be married to a man who loves our family so well and always points us to Jesus. I love you Dave MacDonald! Here’s to many more adventures. #42ndanniversary#adventureswithyou
Sometimes when I’m hiking I like to pretend I’m Dora the Explorer with my trusty friends Backpack, Boots and Map. Together we will stop Swiper from swiping and make it to the lost treasure before dinner time! #foreverakidatheart
Farrah had packed her wedding flats and the Birkenstocks she lives in every day but neither of those options were doable when a couple feet of snow fell overnight on their late June elopement day. “I planned for a summer wedding!” she laughed. So when Mike and I were getting ready to leave our place in Denver and meet these guys in the mountains, we packed extra coats and boots for John and Farrah. Shoes can bring a lot of your personality to your wedding day, showing off who you are and the kind of life you love, whether it’s platform sandals, hiking boots or Chacos. I think it’s so cool that Farrah was so chill about having to let go of some of those details she’d planned for her wedding day because of the weather. Instead, I was able to lend her my Blundstones boots and my favorite chocolate-brown coat, and it felt so special to be a part of their day in more ways than one, to be there for them as their photographers, their friends, their champions. And of course, in the end, it doesn’t matter what you wear.
