Our Family Trip

We left home on Wednesday morning, June 13th. We went to Estes Park for the wedding of hubby's baby sister. We were traveling with hub's sister, Lynn, her husband, Troy, and their two boys, Tyler and Trevor. Their boys are roughly the same age as our kids, so it was fun to travel with them. We had two mini vans FULL of stuff, and followed each other all the way out there. We planned to stay in Imperial, NE the first night, with Troy's family. They were having a lot of flooding in SW Nebraska, so we ended up scrapping those plans and heading to Greeley, CO to sleep the first night. The next day we were on to Estes Park, we had rehearsal and dinner Thursday night to get ready for Friday's wedding.

We did a lot while we were there. Our cabin was right across the street from the downtown riverwalk, so we did a lot of walking. Some shopping. A little biking. There was the rehearsal and wedding, so that gave us a lot to do. Each night we just hung out at the cabin with Lynn and Troy, talking, drinking, and playing cards.
The kids did fairly well going to bed each night, so it gave us a little time to relax.



Brenna made such a cute flower girl!
Mason was so cute in his little tie.
Hubs didn't look too shabby either.





It was really worth all of the packing, shopping, and driving. We're already talking about a road trip for next summer!

MAYBE we could do a trip together? I am thinking that it's time to get out and see the world WITH CHILDREN. Even if we just did something like Kansas City or Branson or..... I dunno. I wanna do SOMETHING. Maybe, just maybe, we could convince our hubs that it WOULD be fun?!?!

Just a thought..... ;)

Sounds like a great trip! It is nice to have someone to travel with, if you get along. As always, Mason and Brenna look adorable. OK, Jay looks adorable, too.

Y'all clean up real nice.
How was the wedding? Any drama to amuse us old married folk?

I will post actual wedding pics and maybe a story or two - tomorrow or the next. It's tricky - I feel worse speaking on about my in-laws than my own crazy ass family! Part deux in 24-48 hrs. Wedding fun for everyone!

Mason's outfit is killing me...I guess I only see a lot of girl stuff in my house.

See. traveling with kids can be fun! If not a tremendous amount of work...

so glad to hear your road trip went so well! Believe me, I know how exhausting it can be being on the road and I'm sure it felt good to get back home too!

I've been to Estes Park a couple of times before (I used to live in Colorado Springs) isn't it just beautiful up there?! Did you get to go to the Stanley Hotel (where they filmed The Shining?) I love the views all around that town!
