This week I’m back in the lovely state of Colorado to celebrate my grandparent’s 60th wedding anniversary! It’s amazing to look at the family and think that we are all here because of two people. They raised some really wonderful kids and grandkids (well, in my opinion).
This was us a few years ago in Utah. (yes, there are 36 of us… and now that my sister’s married with one on the way, should I say 37 1/2?)
The entire family came out to spend the week forgetting about work, enjoying a beer and relaxing. I use the word relaxing lightly, however, because this week has been anything but relaxing in the lazy sense of the word. We have been hiking, biking, white water rafting, going to rodeos, and making day trips to all the surrounding cities. Whew! I’m exhausted but in a very “relaxed” sort of way!
On Thursday we will be throwing a surprise vow renewal for my grandparents with all the aunts in the bridesmaids dresses my Grandma had in her own wedding! Shh. Don’t tell. Then finishing the night with fireworks next to a lake and surrounded by mountains. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the 4th of July.
Hope you all are having a wonderful 4th of July week/weekend!
Happy 3rd of July and happy 60th wedding anniversary to two seriously amazing grandparents. We all love you so much 🙂
