I got to take a day trip to the ALWAYS beautiful Boulder Colorado to meet up with this favorite family of mine. We have had an insanely beautiful fall in Colorado this year and this Saturday morning was no different. Warm sunshine and happy kids make for an easy day for this photographer.
Now that the dust has finally begun to settle on our crazy busy and fun filled summer I’ve got some weekend recap catching up to do.
The last three weekends put me in Minnesota at the lake for a family reunion, at a beautiful park for Labor Day Monday, and just this past weekend at my favorite restaurant in Boulder with friends.
I live a pretty charmed life with some pretty great people.
…and with that, my Minnesota lake season ended. Couldn’t have gone out on a higher note.
Next up…Labor Day! We took it easy and picnicked in the park. It was great. And the beautiful pregnant woman in the photo’s experienced her own day of labor just four days later! Welcome to the world Lola : ) You are crushingly beautiful already/We find ways to gamble no matter where we are : )Ahhh successful relaxing day at the park. Good times.
This last weekend I spent the day and evening in Boulder with my girlfriends Katie and Ashley. We don’t get together very often, so this needed to be special. We decided on lunch at Pizzeria Locale.Now, let me just say, I turn into a little bit of a freak when I’m at Pizzeria Locale.
That’s because it is not simply a pizza joint.
It does something to me and I’m almost convinced they put some sort of additive in their foods.
Actually they do.
It’s called cheese. And love. They drizzle their pizza with cheese and their cheese with pure love.
We sat on the patio and I exclaimed to every passerby “(sigh)…i’m just so happy”.
It’s that good. It’s the number one restaurant I recommend to people when they come to Colorado. This is coming from a girl that doesn’t even like pizza that much.
I don’t even have a picture of the fried cheese balls we started with because I finished mine before the waiter even set down the plate.
End of summer days don’t get much better than that. Fantastic food, gorgeous weather in a gorgeous mountain city, and incredible company.
Sigh…I’m just so happy.
What’s everyone up to this weekend?
It’s been bananas hot around here. Luckily yesterday I got a cool off pool day in with Miss Ashley.
Maybe we’ll get another one this weekend because it’s supposed to be scorching!
I get to go to one of my favorite restaurants tonight with three of my favorite ladies in one of my favorite cities (Boulder) and I can’t wait!
Otherwise this weekend is dedicated to getting prepared for our road trip next week! We’re driving up to the lakes for 10 days over the 4th of July and OF COURSE i’m totally counting down the days. We’re bringing our bikes for the first time and need to get a bike rack attached to Jon’s car (we would never put something that ugly on pearl). : )
I don’t have many links for ya’ll this week but here are a couple and a current song obsession.
