Rocky Mountain HIGH


Good food. Family. Laughter. Annoyances. Bad communication. Good communication. Driving. Games. History. Beautiful scenery. Wild kids. Hugs. More laughter. Improv. More food. A little bit of sleep. Getting re-acquainted. Love.

This is what we experienced during our family reunion this past week.

And this was where we experienced it----the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

Our family reunion in pictures:

Sunrise from our window....

....and peeking through the clouds.

Lucy.....

....and her twin Lane.

Granby Lake

Aydan, trying to figure out how to clean out the water before he gets in.....

.....and then everyone joins him.

Playing "Pit" at one table....

....and "Apples to Apples" at the other table----fun, fun!

Adorable cousins!

An old caboose in the ghost town of Silver Plume.

And a random cave to explore.

A re-enactment in the old school house---lots of fun for the kiddies!

Learning about electric power in Georgetown.

Later at Improv night----Clayton and Hailey acting up.....

....and Aydan with Uncle Pat acting out.

Fun in the pool with Bret and Aydan.

Hottsie tottsie fam.---well, I was doing MY hottie move, but no one else was playing along. (All the sisters and brothers were there, except the youngest,----we missed you, He-toi!)

And here we all are!! (Except my two brother in laws---they were golfing---and Meg, Clayton's
girlfriend was taking the picture)

It looks like you had a really great time - I'm so glad!

Now I hope you get some sunshine in N.E. while Hailey is visiting you! (I hear it's still raining!?)

Angela said...

Glad your back looks like a blast- and you didn't miss anything only rain!

Tooj said...

My family LOVES apples to apples. Or is it the arguing that they enjoy more? I never can decide. Colorado is a VERY good location for a family reunion....nice choice. Thanks for popping over from SITS...happy Thursday to you.

Rachel said...

Aww I love playing pit and I love all these pictures.

Fabulous!

Karen said...

Looks like such an awesome reunion!

Our family usually just gets together at my aunt's house and then everyone looks at me when they run out of booze since I'm the only one still sober and capable of driving.

Melissa said...

Family is the BEST! And that looked like lots of fun! We totally missed mine this year.....

MelRox said...

You are the ONLY one with a sassy attitude. It looks like all kinds of fun.

What a wonderful vacation. We went the totally opposite end of the spectrum - to the Big City!

Fantastic photo of the (almost) whole gang. I come from a small family so we would never have such a large group pic. Nor would everyone be getting along ;-)

Kristin said...

What lovely pics. Looks like you had a wonderful time!

dapper kid said...

Oh wow, these are so wonderful!! Awww and Lucy and Lane are adorable. Glad you could spend time with all of your family :) I so wish my family did things like this.

Hope you are having a fantastic 4th of July, and you officially down on the project list :)

Melissa B. said...

Oh, I LOVE all these Superior Snaps! The card game reminds me of the UNO marathon we had at an airport gate once when the kids were little. But I guess that's another post for another time. Hope you & yours have the Happiest of 4ths!

Mighty M said...

Looks like so much fun!! My daughter is wearing that cherry dress today!! Visiting from SITS - saw that you sang in a parade - FUN!! Happy 4th!

Thanks for all your work to make it happen! In spite of the difficulties, the reunion in Colorado will remain a fond memory.

I love family reunions!!

Yours looked to be alot of fun! Glad you enjoyed yourselves....
Beautiful scenery, too.

Angela said...

I can't believe you were in Colorado and I didn't know it!!! I would have driven to where you were just to say hello and give hugs!! :( I'm glad you enjoyed the beautiful state I now live in.
Love and miss you!

Hey, I just posted a comment, but I forgot that I was going to ask you the details on the place where you stayed. It looks huge and my husband's family is looking for a place in CO to do a reunion. Would you mind giving me the details? :)
Thanks,
Angie
