Rocky Mountain High, Colorado!

We have spent the last few days in Vail and Aspen... Austin free!
It has been wonderful to escape the heat of Texas. We stayed for one night in Vail and enjoyed walking around Vail Village and checking out the Betty Ford Botanical gardens. If you're ever needing a break along I-70 I highly recommend going there!
I don't know what I was thinking wearing flip flops because it was still cold! After a wonderful day in Vail we moved on to Aspen. Aspen is SO beautiful! It's been so nice to travel to these places during the off season. It's been a little less ritzy and a little more local.
We rented scooters and traveled up to the Maroon Bells. Don't we look intimidating?
Beautiful! I think I could handle coming back!

I love you guys on scooters. I think that is probably the best picture ever. It was great to see you last weekend.

Gorgeous pics! I had no idea Betty Ford put a botanical garden in Vail...I'll have to check that out.

The picture of you on the scooter is awesome! I'm incredibly intimidated!! It's always so great to go home.

I'm so glad that you guys had a great time! Wish we lived closer so that we could hang out more often! Austin is getting so big.
