2014 Bucket List: #9

#9. Take a trip with Hubs. . . and not to visit family!

Date accomplished:  06/01/2014

Hubs and I went to the beautiful state of Colorado this past weekend.  It was for a friend’s wedding, which isn’t exactly what I had in mind for this list item, but it’s probably as close as we’re going to get this year – hahaha.  Sweet Pea took up all our vacation/expendable income for 2014!  The wedding was beautiful; I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a bride and groom more joyful.

The mountains were gorgeous!  We were able to drive around a bit, between wedding events, though I didn’t get many pictures.  We saw a lot of elk – they were everywhere!  We left for home very early Monday morning, and even saw some on the roads.  Hopefully we’ll be able to go back and enjoy the national park another time. . .do some hiking and camping.

If you’re ever looking for accommodations near Estes Park, I’d highly recommend the Saddle & Surrey.  Barbara (one of the owners) is absolutely wonderful!!  Our room was so clean and comfortable, the shower was amazing, and the breakfast (pastries) was delicious.  We’ll definitely be staying there again, when we go back!
