I promise there won't be too many "how I spent my summer vacation" posts, but I did go on a couple of adventures, including a trip to Colorado in June.

The reason for the trip was to attend the wedding of our niece, but it was also a wonderful family get-together. Not only did we get to visit with relatives on my husband's side of the family, but my children and their "others" (as they were affectionally called) came along as well.

The wedding took place outside of Breckenridge at an elevation that took a little getting use to.

Here are a few photos from the trip.........

While this trip was technically a "family vacation", almost every morning I would venture out on my own with my camera and tripod (huffing and puffing....see the part about the elevation above). The light was beautiful, and I found plenty to photograph, but my favorite images were of the wildflowers.

Just one of the highlights of my summer...........memories and photographs were made with family and friends, and I am extremely grateful!
