camping in rocky mountain national park

During the second weekend in August, Danny and I joined my parents and brother for a camping trip in Rocky Mountain National Park.

{I like to think that some of you, before I mentioned the word August, thought we went camping recently.  If you did, I am so honored that you think I would go camping in NOVEMBER.  What is actually going on here is my mom and I live far away from each other, and when we see each other we usually forget to swap pictures.  I have been waiting to finish this post until I had all the pictures.}

Anyways, some of my very favorite memories involve travelling and camping with my family.  Therefore, being able to be apart of a family camping trip with Danny was something I was very excited about.  Introducing him to one of my favorite camping spots and family traditions was so sweet, and of course, being with my family in such a beautiful setting was such a gift.  The pictures from the weekend describe it much better than I can with mere words…

^^ This lil’ guy LOVED our newspapers.  He tore them so shreds so skillfully, and then carried them to his den.  Precious.  ^^

On Sunday morning, we packed up and went for a hike to another beautiful destination, whose name now escapes me because I am writing this 3+ months after the fact.  But, like I said earlier, pictures are better than words in this case.
