This is how I can endure the current heat wave!

Today the forecast for Fort Worth, TX is 109 degrees!  We will be heading to Fun Valley, CO later this month where the forecast high for today is 63 degrees!  I am beyond ready, in fact, we all are!

Where a kid can be a kid!

You can eat food prepared by this man! The one with the apron...the one on the left is my hubby and he can make cereal...they are distant cousins and Rick loves Randy like a brother:)

This is the view from our cabin last year...breathtaking!

Kids can make friends like this...
and this...

and this...

and do things like this...

...and wear clothes like this and pose for goofy vacay pics with your parents!

As a fellow Fort Worth, TX native I totally appreciate the obsession John Denver had with Colorado! Especially this time of year. When I was a teenager, I think I was sweltering at church camp in San Antonio, TX when Rocky Mountain High came out...always a favorite because it makes me feel cool...well temperature wise anyway.  I don't think being a fan of John Denver was ever especially cool...right?

Hot Flashes much? Bring 'em on! The nights are forecast in the low 50s, high 40s!


  1. How FUN! I'm so insanely jealous you're escaping this awful heat. And that looks like a mighty fun place to get away!!! Enjoy!

  2. There is no place like Colorado. We lived there for 3 years and I still miss it! Enjoy!

  3. I think we are going with you next year. It's sweltering in Florida. I think the indoor pool at our condo will get a lot of use.

  4. IM SOOOOOOO JEALOUS!!! My parents just got back and we are for SURE going next year.
