Ashley is on vacation for one glorious week in her favorite place EVER,
Traverse City, Michigan. They love it so much, they even got married there.
Until next week lovelies!
|this was hilarious to me for some reason...|
|where we ate, I highly recommend this if you are downtown C. Springs!|
|It was a brewery so we had to try some beer. Husband had most of it because|
I was already eating my weight in calories when I had.....
|Miss Emily! A friend from Michigan who is currently going into her junior|
year at the Air Force Academy. She told us some tales about what goes down
there and all I have to say is she is TOUGH STUFF for being able to do it all!
|oh wait, this isn't mine...this is husbands. new york strip omelet with potato bacon salad.|
|as I was saying, my weight in calories because I had a bison burger with sweet potato fries and raaaaaanch!|
|and here goes husband, breaking the law.|
|I have to tell you that it was 95 degrees out and this was around 2:30...|
he totally burnt his leg on the statue.. haha. I mean...poor guy!
|these are real. so cool, yes?|
|air force chapel|
|and this is the inside. so gorgeous.|
|This is an F-? something or other :)|
|do I look tough enough to pilot one of these bad boys?|
No. Didn't think so.
|funny story Emily told us... pranking is apparently a huge thing around the base/school. One group of guys stole the word "steal" and they got kicked out. OOPS. :)|
|the lovely Jane|
|Jane's sandwich. The picture of mine turned out really blurry. Oh well. They were both fattening and just ALRIGHT.|
But neither of us knew of any great places in Denver so it was a shot in the dark!
|pretty sure this is how I would look if I smoked pot.|
I have the stoner eyes going on.
|Jane and I! yay!|
|This is where we ate... it seemed like a good choice but ended up being in a sketch|
part of town and, like I said, the food was just "eh".
But the company was FABULOUS :)
|2 miles in, not even to the LOOP yet, and miss Bella is pooped.|
|reaching the loop, after 2 miles of hiking|
|a little "off-road" hiking... found a cool tunnel, and was terrified a rattlesnake was going to|
jump out and bite me at any second. (someone had been bit on this trail jus 2 days before!)
|husband and Bella's butt in the tunnel|
|getting tired and cramped myself here....7 miles is far!|
|the view of pike's peak halfway through was incredible!|
|Bella HAD to be carried around mile 5...she kept collapsing into the dirt and looking at us like we were killing her...|
okay, it isn't poisonous but still.
|loved this sign at the end of our hike...|
and yes, I did smokey the bear's voice...
"Only YOU can prevent forest fires!"
|1. the ears pin back because Bella is not happy!|
Just look at that face..
|2. Bella acts like she can't stand in the life jacket,|
so she leans against the chair....
|3. Trying to get Bella to pose, she just wanted to look down, |
with her ears back and give a sad look. What a drama queen...
|4. She won't even look at the camera. Instead she looks at husband like|
"dad. save me. mom has loaded me in a trap. " Only when Bella says it, it sounds
more like: "dad, saves me. mom has woaded me in a twap!"
Because you know, she is still working on saying words properly.
She is only 7 months old you know.
(I am not weird, at ALL.)
And finally, I leave you with a lovely video of my brother and I.
The 2:12 mark is really the best.
My brother is a little crazy.
