Hey Hey! It’s Friday!

Happy Friday!

I’ve been totally MIA this week… I promise to be back on the regular next week.

First, though, my sweet blogging friend Tif over at Bright on a Budget featured me for her Tour Around Blogland. So awesome! If you’re visiting from that, Hi! If you haven’t visited Bright on a Budget, go now! She always puts together great outfits using such affordable pieces!!

Anyway, it’s been quiet this week because we’ve been on vacation in Colorado!

Here are a few highlights from this week:

Cup of Tea at the Rocky Mountain National Park

We went to the Rocky Mountain National Park on Tuesday. Elizabeth and I continued the tradition of pictures by national park signs that my dad started oh so many years ago!

Beautiful mountains at the Rocky Mountain National Park

Beautiful scenery at the park! Leaves changing, crisp air, bright blue sky! Pictures just don’t do it justice.Visiting Focus on the Family with Cup of Tea

My favorite visit was to the Focus on the Family headquarters and a trip to the Adventures in Odyssey section! If you’ve never heard of Adventures in Odyssey, it’s a kid/family radio program that has been around since the late 80s. I love it! Still listen to it! You can catch up on episodes here. But, as you can see from the picture, I was the only one excited to be there.Great play area at Focus on the Family

They had a great kids play area that let Elizabeth get her wiggles out!!Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs

We also visited Garden of the Gods. It’s so beautiful.Air Force Academy Chapel

I have never visited the Air Force Academy campus before. I’ve only done a drive by before. So it was nice to actually see it all up close!

Let me know what you’ve been up to in the comments below!  Have a great weekend!

    The pictures look like you have had a great time. I think vacation with the family is the best and most important thing to recharge one’s batteries.

    You’re welcome:) And thank you. Looks like you all have had a great time! The only places I’ve been out west are Nevada and Arizona. I’d love to go to Colorado one day. And I’m all about traditions, so I love your national parks pic one!

      Add Colorado to your list! The state is so big, though, that you either need 3 weeks to see it all/do it justice, or only do a few things (like we did).

      I always rolled my eyes at my dad when we pulled over and had to get out for the National Park sign pictures! But now I’m glad he did!

    Fun trip! My hubby’s brother & sister-in-law just moved away from Boulder, which we’re sad about because we only had one chance to visit while they lived there. Such a great area for a vacation. We loved our hikes in the park but didn’t make it to Garden of the Gods.
