Longs Peak

by Kay~Kacey on 9/15/2012

We were on vacation for a few days last week…like a very few…but I thought I’d post a quick mountain photo just because. Michael & Karl…this one’s for you. May ¬†you finally make it up to the top of Longs Peak one of these days…

I’ll be back with more photos of the fun we had in Estes Park, and look for new construction updates on Monday!

Life in Focus-Slow Down

Slow down, you’re moving too fast, you’ve got to make the morning last
Just kickin’ down the cobble-stones, lookin’ for fun and feelin’ groovy

~Simon and Garfunkel

How about it this weekend? How about kicking back and relaxing? Enjoy a good book, a cup of tea, an icy beer. Watch the clouds. Listen to music. Sit in silence. Cook a decadent dessert. Never underestimate the power of taking the time to stop and slow down. You never know what you might be missing!

Enjoy your weekend, my blogging friends.

Road Trip-Estes Park Version

by Kay~Kacey on 7/28/2009

So we got up early the first morning of our Colorado trip. You know, after the sunset competition the night before. We decided to head into the mountains. Gutsy move, considering the wedding was back in Denver that evening, but we were confident we could squeeze every fabulous moment out of the day.

We fought through the Denver rush hour traffic and headed off to Estes Park. Here we are just coming into Boulder. What a pretty place to go to college. All my nieces went to college there.

First stop is Kind Coffee in Estes Park. They have the best coffee there. You can go right out the back door and sit by the Big Thompson River and walk up the back of the town on the River Walk. It doesn’t get much better than that when you’re wanting to enjoy your coffee!

I love Estes Park. I grew up spending the summers there at Cheley Camp. So did my sister, her husband, and a handful of our boys. So we’re kind of an Estesy type family. I proceeded to take pictures with my iPhone and send them off to everyone in my family who is as addicted to Estes as I am. Take, for instance, Ed’s Cantina. My sister’s family’s favorite place to eat in Estes. They even made up an Ed’s Cantina song. Yes, my family is strange, why do you ask? So off this picture goes to my sister and bil.

Next up, a picture of Longs Peak. Off it goes to the Photography One. He’s made it almost to the top, but never all the way to the top. He keeps being turned back by electrical storms, or ice. He’ll make it up there one day. I’m sure.

After I sent the photos, the text messages kept rolling in. I got text-slapped all day long. :rofl:

Family was jealous, and not handling it well. Who knew they would call me such names?? :love:

Then there was the obligatory stop at The Taffy Shop. Best salt water taffy in the world. Honest. Had to pick up a box for my father. Don’t tell him! I haven’t given it to him yet. Then, we did some more shopping in Estes. Can’t tell you what we bought. Christmas is coming… Secrets! :secret:

We then headed into Rocky Mountain National Park…for yet another photo shoot competition. I’ll have more up tomorrow. I have wedding photos to edit too. Busy week! Stay tuned!
