Fourth of July with Family

Gabe and I were able to take a long weekend and go up to Colorado to spend the Fourth of July weekend with my whole family and my extended family on my Dad's side. It had been about 2 years since I had seen 2 of my sisters and 2 and 1/2 years since we all have been together and probably 10 years since the whole extended family has been together. A reunion long over due. It was so great to see everyone and I loved spending time with my siblings. My niece and nephews are soo cute it was awesome being able to play and be with them. We stayed the weekend up at my Aunts ranch in the mountains. About an hour away from any town. Just us and the mountains. We got to do some four wheeling, rock climbing, and lots of good family time. Then we spend a day and half at my Aunt's in Colorado Springs where I got to see my grandparents and my mom's sister. It was such a wonderful time with family. I wish we all lived closer so it wouldn't be so long in between visits. We took Chief with us and by the time we got to Colorado Springs he was beat. He was great with the kids even though they were constantly hitting him, picking him up and putting their hands in his face. My little niece Rylee kept calling him Cheeto. It was so cute. Here are some great pictures of my beautiful family and the beautiful mountains.
