{twenty sixteen} summer road trip

i’m really excited for our summer.

it’s still four months away, but well into the planning stages.

one of the adventures i am most excited about is a road trip i have planned.

my family lives in colorado, and we are past due for a visit there. not to mention, it’s a fabulous place to to spend a week in the summer!

the kids and i are going to hit the road and explore on our way from the state of oregon to  colorado and back.

my plan is for us to stay in historic hotels in the cities we stop in along the route. i have most of it researched, but need to finalize the details and start making reservations!

once we get to colorado, we will stay at my parents beautiful house in the foothills west of denver.

from there, we can hike on beautiful trails in their neighborhood, swim at the pool with a view of mt. evans, venture into denver for a colorado rockies baseball game, head up to boulder to visit my alma mater, check out rocky mountain national park, and head up into the rocky mountains for some crisp mountain air.

i cannot wait for this adventure to explore new areas of the west with my kiddos!

    If you’re looking for some adventure.. along the way is a town called Shaniko in Oregon. I’s a preserved “old west” town. My mom and I stumbled on this town on a road trip as well when I was maybe 12 years old, and it’s still one of my favorite memories..
    Happy Travels
