Hi Y'all! Today is the anniversary of the Jeff n' Steph union! Six years ago today, we entered into a wonderful life together. For those of you that were in attendance, you'll be glad to know we just re-lived the whole day (in highlight form) by watching our wedding video. All of your dance moves make our anniversary special every year! You dancin' fools have some serious skills!

Since we have zero babysitters in our new state, we decided to go on a day trip as a family to celebrate. We drove through the mountains on Trail Ridge Road which is the highest road in the U.S. It tops out somewhere in the 12,000 feet range and you spend a good amount of time above the tree line! It was really pretty and great to experience the mountains of our new home- even if much of it was from the car! We were able to see Winter Park, take a "hike" (it was a whopping mile long and changed elevation by 10 feet!!- Avery's first hike, we thought we should take it slow... we were right, we carried her most of the time) in Rocky Mountain National Park, and have lunch in Estes Park. It was a nice day- Avery loved the mountains and Jeff and I made each other laugh a lot and we got to see some elk!

So here's some shots of the fam on our 'hike'. Jeff and Avery are standing on a bridge over the Colorado River! Isn't it crazy how small it is?? Apparently, by the time it gets to the Grand Canyon (what I'm used to), it gains quite a bit of momentum.



Avery testing the waters of the Colorado! Very brave of her!

Avery full of optimism at the beginning of her hike. She didn't know that it means you just walk a lot!
And this is taken at the top of Trail Ridge Road. Pretty amazing! We passed a bunch of snow and the lack of trees was so cool!

So this should entice all of you to start saving your pennies and come visit us!!! Well, talk to you soon!
