summer's going downhill

It's already July 20th! Ah! I'm not ready for the summer to end. It's gone by so quickly. I'm not sure I'm ready to go back to teaching. Here's what the summer's been full of for us so far...

June 5th--Celebrated our 1st Anniversary spending a few days in Austin, TX

June 18th--Visited friends and family in Illinois and had an Ahrens Family Reunion!!

June 25th--Wedding in Columbia!

June 30th--Hiked to MacGregor Falls

July 2nd--We hiked into Moraine Park.

July 4th--We had to work but participated in the YMCA's 4th of July Parade as the Housekeeping Bride and Groom!

July 6th--Hiked Sky Pond. First hike of the summer!

July 5th--We had some Texan girls visiting and had a blast sight seeing with them!

July 7th--We went into town to celebrate my birthday and took some cute pictures!

July 8th--While Colleen was visiting for the week we hiked to Gem Lake. It's only 1.7 miles but we made it a super fun hike!!

July 9th--Then Ben came and visited us. We took him up Trail Ridge Road!

July 13th--Rollin and I hiked to Sandbeach Lake, it was really cool! And that's Meeker in the background!

July 14th--We conquered Spraque Mountain! It was a 17 mile roundtrip hike and over 11 of those miles were above treeline in exposed tundra. It was a huge accomplishment for me!

July 19th--Rollin and I got in our car around 6 in the morning to go hiking to find that our car wouldn't start! At that early in the morning we really couldn't do anything about it so we hiked Eagle Cliff. We had a good time :) And it turned out that our car just needed a new battery!
