life: family day

It was a little bit like being a tourist in our own town, but it went down as one of the best days I've had this year. Our whole family, getting to spend an entire day together in the mountains before the boys go back to school and Rachel gets married. 

Enjoy these pictures...a little peek into our day. Picnics, windy freezingness at the top of Trail Ridge Road, ice cream in Estes Park...and my newest favorite picture is at the bottom of the post!

Smoke from the High Park Fire. It was crazy watching it grow during the day.
