Friday Favorites: Weekend Recaps

Happy Friday y’all! It’s been a busy week starting to get back in the routine of the new school year to come. I have LOVED seeing all of the back to school pics of all the kiddos & students on their first days of school. How is it already that time?! But let’s be honest because I’m so ready to say good-bye to summer and hello to fall! Give me all of the boots, sweaters, and pumpkin things! 

But while we are waiting for the beautiful season of fall (or at least it’s beautiful in Colorado), let’s talk about some of our favorites lately!

Daddy is home and we are LOVING it! Caleb is still constantly checking that when Daddy goes out the door, he’s coming back the same day and not 16 days later. So we have made sure to get some good family time in to enjoy that we are all back together. (And before the craziness of the school year begins.) Its for sure been a favorite! 

We’ve gone to the amusement park with the youth group…

Gone on a family hike….

And we went to the splash pad in downtown Denver.

Last weekend, some of our favorites came to visit.. G-Daddy & Mimi! 

We got lots of good time in at the playground…

The little guy schmoozed them into taking him for a bike ride…

More playground action (because someone has SO MUCH energy)…

And then the big event was riding a train!! We went on the Royal Gorge Railroad which is a 2 hour ride on a steam train that takes you through a beautiful part of the mountains. 

We had reserved seats but then you can also walk to the open-air car and walk all around. Both inside and out, there were people over the speaker explaining everything that you were looking at. It was so great! 

We all LOVED it! I’m not really sure if G-Daddy or Caleb loved it the most. We might just have to call it a tie with their silly faces…


Back at home, the little guy had deemed Mimi the reader of the stories every night…

When you have breakfast with the grandparents, you get to have a drawing contest and eat the silliest pancakes ever…

Our last night together we had a great dinner at one of our favorite places, the Farmhouse at Breckenridge Brewery. 


It was such a great visit and good-byes are never easy for the little guy. He’s still asking why they left and when they are coming back. πŸ˜‰ Obviously, the visit was a favorite! 

So now it is time for another weekend and we are ready to have some more fun! Happy Friday everyone! 

Linking up with AndreaErika, and Narci.
