My Little Slice of Heaven

Last weekend, Boots and I made the 15-hour trek to Colorado (just barely surviving a crazy hailstorm along the way. My poor car. And dog.) last weekend and are now basking in our little slice of heaven.

My mom had my room made up and ready for us, complete with my childhood laundry basket (I don’t think I’d seen that thing in over a decade) and a chocolate on my pillow. We eat dinner together on the deck every night after my mom reads us a little devotional. Boots and I take walks every night with my dad, watching the sun set over the mountains.

Boots is spending his days playing with my sister’s dogs, chasing rabbits around my parents’ massive (grassy!) backyard, and getting doted on by my parents and niece.

Brianna and Caden are still the cutest niece and nephew on the planet. We have already played dress up, had tea parties, sung songs (last night’s request was “Away in A Manger” with a “Go Tell It On The Mountain” interlude), assembled and smashed foam dinosaurs, and read “Trucks” approximately 47 times…and the best is yet to come.

My dad and I were really wanting to hike a 14er, but the one we had our eye on required snowshoes to get to the top and I’m just not quite that hardcore, so instead we decided to hike 11 miles of “Devil’s Backbone.” We saw 3 deer, 1 adorably plump groundhog, and about a zillion bunnies.

I cannot believe how green Colorado is! They’ve been getting a lot of rain lately and it is just gorgeous everywhere you look – snow-capped mountain peaks, babbling brook, fields of wild flowers. It is quite serene. We saw a few hikers, a handful of trail runners, and a whole lotta mountain bikers, one of whom is the purchasing manager at Tokyo Joe’s where they apparently support people getting outdoors and staying active, so he gave us 2 free meal coupons. No complaints here!

Today, while his sister was at VBS, I got Caden all to myself for an entire morning. I tried to squeeze in all of his favorite things, so we read truck books, played with trains at the library, ate cupcakes roughly the size of his head, “mowed” the lawn together, and played my favorite game of all, chase-Caden-and-tickle-him-until-he-collapses-into-the-most-adorable-fit-of-giggles-known-to-man. This kid is so laid back and fun to be around. And that smile melts my heart into a puddle every. single. time.

It’s currently 69 degrees and raining. All is right in my world and my heart is so full. I’m soaking in every ounce of Colorado life that I possibly can and wishing the seconds would tick by just a little bit slower while I’m here.

    1. Ha! That was all my dad’s doing! I told him I was happy with a 6-mile hike, but he wanted to keep going, so…we did! We were both pretty sore that afternoon, but that didn’t stop him from hopping right back outside and mowing the lawn. He’s crazy!
