I am so fortunate to have this girl in my life. My best friend since elementary school, Jessica, came to visit me in Colorado this past week and I got to meet her son David for the first time. We had a jam-packed week (you know me…I don’t rest) and I gave them a glimpse into my new life. I am so blessed!
We spent the day in Boulder exploring the Farmer’s Market and I showed them the gorgeous Flatirons. We packed a picnic lunch and enjoyed Chatauqua Park. I decided to test out my green thumb yet again and bought some herb plants for a little trial garden I am doing on my patio. Wish me luck…I need it. My tomato plant is already struggling.
Of course I could not stop taking pictures of this cute little guy. You wait until I have kids of my own…it’s going to be bad. I had to play aunt and take some cutesy and goofy pictures.
We drove up to the Gross Reservoir just outside of Boulder and Drew attempted some fishing while Jess and I relaxed and enjoyed the sun. I wore shorts in Colorado for the first time in months…it was wonderful.
She’s such a beautiful mother isn’t she? She’s a mom of TWO and she still stays gorgeous.
I have to admit, I love being Auntie Courtney.
We made our way to Estes Park and went hiking and exploring at the Rocky Mountain National Park. We saw a bunch of wildlife: deer, elk, wild turkey and quail. We got pretty close to some deer and elk and they were kind enough to pose for us.
I got to practice my baby carrying skills on our hike and we combatted the altitude, an infant, and even knee deep snow on our hike (believe it or not). It was a blast! My favorite part was sharing 15-year-old inside jokes with my best friend and reliving silly memories and making new ones.
