Friday Photos [8.21.15]

Here are some photos from Andy & my week:

I was at a Folks Fest the previous weekend and there was a double rainbow mid-afternoon!

Ella was clearly missing Christine and Lindsay after living with them for a bit while Andy and I were on vacation, cuz she loved the way their camping gear smelled.

Andy and I enjoying a beer we received in Cali, from Ken Schmidt the man himself!

We enjoyed Ken's beer while reading our journal entries from our two weeks on the road trip to one another.

It was such a lovely way to remember our time together on vacation <3

We tried Funkwerks Punch beer (Saison aged in red wine barrels) next to Funkwerks Saison beer on Thursday night.

Doggie stare-down. These two are so spoiled.

I got to hang with ChaChi (Ryan and Shanda's dog) on Friday back in Minneapolis!

And I got to hang with my nephew Lewis!! He is the best <3

TBT: Last June in Minneapolis

This is a Throwback Thursday (TBT) post to June of this year, the last time I was back in my hometown just outside of Minneapolis. I'm heading back there this weekend to meet my nephew Lewis and see family and some friends. I've been reminiscing about my previous trip where Andy and I got to hang with my buddy Adelaide (my friends' Kara and Chris's little gal), celebrate my sister-in-law Shanda at her baby shower, watch one of my best friends (since the 7th grade!!) get married, and spend the afternoon with my friend Jen and her pups.

They are totally nailing this parenting thing <3


Shanda with the grandmas.

Shanda with the aunties.

THE ONLY picture I have from Michelle's wedding!! Too busy talking and holding my beer :o(

"Throw the effing ball." -Qunicy

And of course we spent a bunch of time with my mom, dad, bro, sis, sis-in-law hanging around the house but I never seem to have my camera out to capture us enjoying wine together on the porch! 

Andy's not making it back this time around, which is a big bummer, but just means I'll have even less competition trying to hold my sweet little nephew Lewis.

Here are some photos from Andy & my week:

Driving from Utah to Colorado by way of Wyoming. 

We loved coming home to this girl Sunday night!
This is the view from our parking spot at Red Rocks Monday night.

Sunset over Red Rocks <3

Andy was being ridiculous and this is my judgement face.

Iron & Wine!

Damien Rice!

So it's been thundering a lot in Denver and Ella feels safe in the bathroom.

Cooking dinner Tuesday night. It's so nice to be cooking in our own kitchen again! Though, we wouldn't say no to more vacation ;o)

Andy and I left reviews Thursday night for our Cali airbnb hosts.

Pliny love.

We're on Vacation! Pt. 5: Sonoma. Lake Tahoe, Salt Lake, and Denver (getting home)

Ok, so here's the last of our California vacation posts :o( Our last weekend of our two week trip out west, and our Sunday evening return to Denver and reunion with our Ella Monster.

One of the views from our table at Friday morning breakfast at Fremont Diner in Sonoma.

Andy took this from the window of our car as we were driving into Tahoe.

"Ok, ok, I'll set-up camp but first I need a beer."

Tahoe campsite. 

Friday night sunset at the campsite. 

No joke, we cooked Morning Star veggie chicken nuggets over a fire (and they were ah-mazing). 

A Saturday morning at Lake Tahoe. 

Brunch in Tahoe.

THE GREAT SALT FLATS. So straight, so flat.

We went to Uinta in Salt Lake Saturday night and bought a sample of every beer they brew.

Mmmm Sunday morning breakfast burrito. 

This is the drive through Wyoming.

Christine and Lindsay sent this pic of Ella settling into their car Sunday afternoon. 

WE'RE BACK IN DENVER! Let's crack a beer we bought at Ballast Point on our road trip.

We missed our Ella!! <3 <3
