Steamboat Springs, CO
We are packing up for a week in Colorado…Steamboat Springs to be exact. We have lots of fun plans and are excited to spend some time together as a family. With such busy girls, the only time we are usually all together anymore is when we go somewhere else. Crazy!
We are also celebrating Lainey’s 13th birthday today. She is officially a teenager! We have spent a lot of her birthdays packing for, traveling, or actually on vacation. She has celebrated her birthday in lots of different places and with lots of different people. This morning we had a birthday/farewell breakfast with my sister and her husband and daughter who are returning to their home in California after 3 weeks in Utah. We will miss them…and when we see them again, they will have a son. He is due to arrive in August and I can’t wait to meet him. I foresee a visit to California in my near future.
After 20 years of trips with kids, we are pros, so getting ready is relatively stress free. Joe is kind of nervous because I seem so calm and I am not frantically doing things, but I have slowly been getting ready for the last week or so. I have a few loads of laundry left and some packing and then I’m good to go. Next week, I will be sharing some of the travel secrets we have learned over the years. Have a lovely weekend, and enjoy a few changes…
