earlier this week we had the most gorgeous spring day. we went on a walk and had a picnic lunch at the park behind our house. the trees are still bare, but the grass is green and soft, perfect for an afternoon of lounging and running around and then yesterday it snowed. this has been the strangest spring! denver has had snow almost every week since february and i am so very ready for warmth. i find myself daydreaming of the beaches in hawaii, with my sand in my toes and the smell of saltwater. oh, i could be a beach bum. but, the reality is, we do live in a gorgeous place with a lot of adventure to be had.
we started planning our vacations for this summer. yellowstone, the grand tetons, and moab are on our short list. we would like to do a lot of weekend car camping around colorado too. what are some fun trips that you have made in the summer? any advice on camping with kids (and two very energetic jack russell terriers)? i'm thinking a large tent would be a lot of fun!
