Is it really Friday already? Where did the week go?
We spent our Fourth of July in Breckenridge with family from out of town. Normally we just drive up for the parade and head back in the same day, but this time we all rented out condos and stayed for the weekend. Our first stop was at the fire station so that we could go on bucket rides on the ladder truck. (Perks of being married to a fire fighter.)
We spent the rest of the weekend participating in the parade/ Independence day festivities…
… and just simply enjoying the mountain town atmosphere and each other’s company.
(Oh yeah, and the bubbles… you’re never too old for bubbles.)
Unfortunately, Penelope came down with a fever and ended up puking all over our bed during our stay. By the time Monday rolled around the rest of us were coming down with Penelope’s cold. Our out of town family had already left so the girls and I dropped Brent off at work before having a breakfast picnic and heading back down the mountain.
As we made our way down we descended into gloomy rainy weather that didn’t let up for three days solid.
The temperatures were in the 60’s but it was a welcome reprieve since we all fell victim to Penelope’s cold. Soup was on the menu and snuggling/Netflix was the only thing on the agenda. With the weather being crappy I didn’t feel too guilty about it. When the clouds finally parted I made my way to the garden to see how it had faired while we were gone and was surprised to see that it had grown a ton in just a few short days!
This is perfect timing because after enjoying all of the holiday fair my body was craving something straight from the ground.
(Typed while snacking on graham crackers.)
I’m such a hypocrite…
It’s okay though, because I can feel my arm muscles twitch every time I shovel a cracker into my mouth due to an unusually hard yoga class in which I almost suffocated in my own boobs. But that’s a story for another day…
