This year, instead of one big trip, we are taking several mini-trips throughout the summer. We didn’t exactly plan it that way, it just worked out this way. And the way things are going, I expect more to be added on before all is said and done.
What are you up to this summer?
Here is where we are headed:
Our lovely next-door neighbors (the ones that are not Mr. Lady) moved away last year and we miss them. And their dog Newman. And Eurovision. Which we used to watch together religiously. So, we are heading west to see them and that wacky European singing contest. And, of course, Seattle.
ESTES PARK, COLORADO
We have always heard what a fun place the YMCA in Estes Park was, so we are excited to head up there with other Mile High Mamas to check it out. Dex is slightly too young for their zipline, and I am slightly too accident-prone… but all three of us will try our hand at archery.
BLACK MOUNTAIN DUDE RANCH, COLORADO
We visited Black Mountain last year, and did the full-scale dude ranch thing. We are so thrilled to go back for a long weekend this August, with a friend of Declan’s in tow no less. I am expecting to get more horse roping photos and to NOT break my finger this time.
Before my family gets all excited about this one – it’s still up in the air. Bryan’s 25th high school reunion is in September and he actually wants to go. I want to wait and see if his fever passes before I buy tickets, since he has never once wanted to go before. But I am on board to catch up with family and eat some Maryland blue crabs on a dock!
Suggestions for other places that
should be on our short list?
