i've never been one for narrowing down my favorite pictures for posts, because they are always all my favorite. so here it is, estes park trip 2014 & a million photos included.
we had a great trip this year & all agreed that it ended too quickly. it was our first family trip without my dad, and i felt it. it wasn't the same & i missed his hugs & his presence, but it truly was a good time together regardless. we stayed at a new place & it was sooo nice to all fit under one roof! the house we stayed in was right on the river & i loooved long conversations in the hot tub and on the upper deck looking over the water. we had a chex mix "cook off" in hopes that someone could match my dads recipe & i think chris nailed it. ash brought muddy buddies & i made my first batch of pumpkin bread... like most years, i came home feeling like an actual carbohydrate, and like most years i still say "worth it". i'm so thankful for this family of mine, they are life's cake & i will have helping after helping.
