the goings on.....

A quick overnight trip (with my new party of six, because ever since my parents moved up, we have been traveling in a pack together :) began with a drizzly drive into the mountains on I-70 that led to Vail.

It's a sweet, Austrian-esque ski town....if you've never been there, it's worth a visit.

One of the things I love about Vail are the abundant amounts of art and sculpture that are erected on every corner....even the kinda crazy ones are cool to see.

And then we moved on to Salida.

The smell of fresh rain is the best smell on earth.
Besides fresh baked bread, that is.
And it was raining everywhere we went that weekend. Not constantly.
Just bits here and there. Enough to bring in some moisture and a constant barrage of fresh smells.
I LOVE it.

My Dad.
Kicking back at the end of a long day.

We played here, went to the farmer's market, found a few deals at some yard sales...

That boy of mine is the sweetest most huggable, loveable child. Ever.
Okay, make that two.

And they sure do love their Nana and Papa.

But, before heading home we landed at our main attraction....AND take a look at that line to get in!

When we finally rolled home we arrived, to that sky, and more drizzling.

We've been having some pretty fantastic weekends, lately.
I didn't even capture one photo of my Aunt and Uncle's visit from Sunday and Monday!
We laughed, when we parted ways last night, that our time spent together had been nothing short of decadent.
And it so was.

And by the way...
I've been listening to this guy like crazy, lately.

Press play and then prop your feet up.....it's so beautiful:
