It was quite the trip, so here are my favorite photographed moments in an authentically <<Quick>> Seven Quick Takes.
On our way there, I watched the map attentively (also being the navigator and all) and told Joel I was very excited to stop at the 4 Corners and take an epic family photo!!!!!!!
With a sleeping Mia at this very juncture BOTH TIMES through, this is apparently as close to a family photo at the 4 Corners as I am going to get.
I read somewhere that one of the best ways to keep little toddlers occupied in a hotel room is to unplug the phone and let them play with it.
I can strongly attest to this brilliant idea.
On Friday we had all day to hang out before the wedding that evening. We first went to breakfast in downtown Telluride, and took the gondola to get there!
Who isn't excited for cool weather clothes!!!!???
And who doesn't think this is the scariest decent down a mountain, dangling on a cable, of all time?
While we sat in some grass to eat our breakfast sandwiches, I noticed Mia walking away quite cheerfully from her baby.
And for some reason the carefree expression on her face just cracks me up!
Me: "Mia, where is your baaabbyy????"
That afternoon after naptime, Joel took Mia to a little lake by our hotel. She loved the ducks!
Then she tried out her new "peek-a-boo" pose before heading back...
That night, the wedding was beautiful!! It was near the top of a mountain, and if I hadn't been so distracted by the fact that Mia dropped my phone down the cracks of the huge deck we were on, I would've taken more scenic shots.
^^My favorite shot of the night. You can tell she is about to be up to no good!
The trip was an awesome break from the still-100-degree heat that is September in Arizona. But October is around the corner, and hoodies and layers and trips to the park are in our future. I can't wait!!
I just released my 4th podcast Episode of This Inspired Life! I'm talking with Haley from Carrots for Michaelmas about Women and the Church - it was an awesome chat! You won't want to miss it ;)
