Moonset over Rocky Mountain National Park
Estes Park, Colorado
July 27, 2006
I’ve had a full couple of weeks! I spent a week and a half in Virginia, visiting my parents and my brother and his family. I went kayaking with my friend Sarah in western Virginia. I went to my cousin Christine’s baby shower in Maryland. I caught up with friends I hadn’t seen in ages. Best of all, I got in lots of playtime with my niece and nephew.
This week I came back to Colorado, just in time for a family reunion in Estes Park. My aunt, uncle, cousins, and cousins’ children rented a house with a phenomenal view of Rocky Mountain National Park. They all live far away from me (Indiana, New York, and Texas), so I was thrilled that they chose my state for their vacation! It was great to be able to visit them in my own neck of the woods, and such a gorgeous location, too. This morning we woke up early to take family portraits in the park, at a perfect spot along a winding creek. The photo above was the view from the house patio last night.
Now I am getting all caught up with my work, so I won’t have a chance to sort through all my family photos for another week or so. I’ll have a lot of family pictures to share eventually.
Sunday is our first anniversary. I can’t believe a year has gone by so fast!
