It’s been years since our last visit to Rocky Mountain National Park and our first time taking the boys. Let me tell you, breathing in Colorado air makes me whole again – there’s no place like home!
We started our little adventure taking back roads into the park, with a pitstop through Glen Haven to grab goodies for picnicking. Made to order sandwiches (on homemade bread), cherry cobbler, and lots of other munchies had us packed and ready to go!
Once in the park, we drove and drove and drove some more — enjoying every twist and turn. With all of our tummies growling, we pulled off in search of the perfect picnic spot.
A short hike later and we were there! I can’t imagine we’ll ever be in a more beautiful place eating lunch together — might even earn the title, ‘The Picnics of All Picnics!’
With Beckam conked-out in the car, Gage and I took turns tossing cheerios to the cutest little chipmunks!

With windows down, we could smell the pines the whole way home — couldn’t help but get a little excited for Christmas to come!
Colorado, you really are beautiful! Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you recover and heal from the devastating floods. We feel fortunate to have savored your beauty and know in time, all will be well again.
Thank you for the memories that’ll last a lifetime!
