This past weekend I was up in the mountains, just north of Boulder at my dad’s house. It was a much needed time off. I was just able to focus on family, fun and food! We all did a bit of fishing (I must confess that I pretend to fish, because I don’t want to hurt the fishies), light hiking, and riding on the ATV’s/Mule. We had nearly 700 acres at our fingertips, and man did we run all over that place! The dogs loved it up there too. Down in the city, there are so many distractions that completely throw them off, but up there they are free. No leashes there, just open-range. We decided to leave Brutus home; to give him a break from the pups. As he basked in the A/C, we were enjoying the great outdoors. We also ate way too much. Both of my parents have always cooked for an army and they do a great job at that! One of the highlights was making homemade french fries with my pops. Great time spent and yummy too.
The above image of that large fishing box belonged to my grandpa. Both my great-grandpa and grandpa have always been amazing fishermen and they took such great care of all of their fishing supplies. I think it’s pretty cool that my dad has them to share with us too. Family is the most important thing to me. I cherish every moment with each and every one of my family members. I’m truly blessed.
I hope you enjoyed the above photos and a peek into my weekend. If you can, please go camping or hiking this summer — it’s worth it, I promise!
