Each year Sten goes on this amazing fishing trip with his brother and buddies, flying into Colorado, then driving up to WY. He comes home every year with more stories and ideas of new fishing gear,  he just "has to have" :)  This year, Lucy and I flew to CO too. While the guys went fishing, Ryann and I and the kids stayed back, then we all met up with more family in Breckenridge to finish out a seriously great vacation.
It felt restful and busy, quiet and loud, jam-packed, yet relaxing... the perfect blend of family time, all wrapped up in the beauty of Colorado. My favorite memories included:
- getting to spend extra time with Drake and Raine, learning their loves- Drake: talking to people, puzzles, movies ("Sandlox" aka Sandlot), swimming. Raine: books, being sweet, gum, lipstick.
- putting the kids to bed each night and Ryann and I sitting outside with a glass of wine
- date night in Fort Collins
- seeing friends
- visiting Vail during the Farmer's Market
- Hiking in Breckenridge
- Evenings spent at the house in Breck

I took a million pictures... :)
