Jenny and I are and always have been big fans of road trips. We spent 3 weeks on the road for our honeymoon 6 years ago. Something about just getting in the car…errr, minivan now, putting the trusty ipod on shuffle, and just driving relaxes me.
For this trip, we are meeting my sister in Durango, CO, but we have no idea when we will arrive (hopefully by Thursday), and that’s the way we like it. We are also going to try and hit Buena Vista for the hot air balloon festival, but who knows. Day by day is the Solar way. Oh, wait, we have 3 young children with us now. I guess we’re on their schedule (which is why we didn’t hit the Colorado border today).
A couple of notes:
1. We’re going to try and blog every night, and when I say we, I mean me on our photo blog, and Jenny on our family blog. Images on here I took, images over there, Jenny took
2. I’m going to update our map as we go.
Anyway, here are a few favorites from Day 1 of our invasion of Colorado (except today, we’re still in the middle of nowhere Kansas)
After a full day of car riding, the kids needed a break, so we found a nice little playground and got some ice cream…lots of fun and smiles ensued
After we got the kids settled in our hotel in Larned, Kansas, I headed out to watch a sweet sunset by myself. I got these 2 images as a result. Who knew Kansas could be so pretty?
Here’s another dose of doggies from Wayside Waifs! If you’re looking for a dog, and let’s be honest, everyone needs a dog, Wayside is the perfect place to adopt one.
This 2 month old puggle puppy told me to tell Jenny hi and that he’s sorry we couldn’t bring him home
Megan & Matt were our 2nd awesome engagement session on Sunday evening. What kept jumping out at me while editing these pictures was Megan’s beautiful laugh. She warned us ahead of time that she laughs a LOT…and that’s ok with me! We met at the park where they got engaged as well as where they play tennis, so you know we had to shoot on the tennis courts
Note: CaraSue Hall did Megan’s styling (she always does an awesome job)
We’re so dedicated, Jenny was sitting on my shoulders for this one. I think it turned out wonderfully (if that’s a word).
