A Beautiful Weekend

I have said several times that weather here in Colorado is the oddest I have ever experienced. And this weekend was no exception. It was in the 70's all weekend (70's IN FEBRUARY?!) and we spent all weekend outdoors soaking in every last ray of sunshine. Because of course it's supposed to snow on Wednesday. 

I worked a vendor fair Saturday morning (Valentine's for Wounded Warriors) which  I took zero pictures of.

After that I met up with these cuties (who were pretending it was summer with their sleeveless dresses and shorts) at Palmer Park for a hike.

After all of that hard hiking we decided burgers and milkshakes were in order. Brian chose a bacon cheeseburger in between two grilled cheeses. It's not like my burger was much better but I had to laugh that it was in between grilled cheese. Counting calories was not a part of this meal. Yikes, I don't even want to know! Hiking probably burns at  least 3,000 calories, right?! ;)

Sunday morning we spent more time outside in the beautiful sunshine. We went for walks, played at the park, got some Girl Scout cookies (YES!), and I snuck out for lunch and pedicures with my friend Kristen. Which was much needed. I feel like such a better mom and wife when I take some time out for myself. And my feet are in much better shape too. Running is not kind to the feet!

After naps more time outside, a family Starbucks date, and another park. To say the kids slept well would be an understatement!

 This weekend makes me excited for spring and summer. There is nothing better than spending the weekend as a family and enjoying the outdoors in beautiful Colorado. Today is supposed to be in the 60's so we'll be spending every moment outside that we can. Happy Monday! :)

Sounds like you guys had a great weekend! I am so jealous of the weather there. It's dreary and cold in Ohio still... just makes me miss sunny Colorado even more! Have you guys hiked at the Red Rock Canyon open space yet? It's really pretty there!

I'm SO jealous of the weather you have. And my husband is jealous of that grilled cheese burger contraption.
