Taking Advantage of Where We Are...

This past year has been a big transition for Bryant and I. We got married, bought a house and both changed jobs (Bryant within the same company). Although we honeymooned in Europe, we have not travelled or taken as many mini vacations as we have in the past, which begged the thought; Why don't we spend more time enjoying where we are at presently geographically and in life?

That has become our goal for this summer. We live in one of the most amazing recreational meccas in the U.S., and we want to take full advantage of our surroundings.

We spent this 4th of July weekend camping on Ruedi Reservoir about 15 minutes outside of Basalt. Our group had 3 camp sites and about 15 campers. It was so fun to spend time wondering around the Frying Pan Valley and hanging out with great friends. We had bonfires and amazing meals. We water skied and explored the valley. Today, I am exhausted, sunburned and sore, but it is worth it!

Last weekend we went on a family hike up Aspen Mountain to enjoy the bluegrass music on Sunday afternoon. It was much more grueling than I remember, but nonetheless a wonderful way to spend the day.

So, expect to see a lot more blogs about our weekend adventures, as we hope to have many.

Until the next one,

B, B & B
