Black and White Wednesday


soren resting


soren and gavin






preston and keaton hiking across a rock field


The pictures above were taken during a week get-a-way last summer to Breckenridge, CO.

We had a wonderful time hiking and swimming and just enjoying relaxing at more than 10,000ft above sea level. Most of our hikes topped out at 13,000 ft above sea level. The kids all did great and loved it!!

The second picture is Gavin and Soren being dorks!! ha
They always have fun spending the afternoon in the pool after a long morning hike.

Awww..I just noticed you & your hubby's signatures are together on the blog - that's sweet. There's no shame in being a "man blogger" - my husband blogs too (he's not usually the camera man though - THAT I am really impressed about!)

I am also impressed at 13,000 feet. I am lightheaded just thinking about it!

Gorgeous Black & Whites!

Beautiful waterfalls! Wow, those are stunning!

Your photos of the boys are awesome! I love our perspective and the processing is "spot on" (as they say Down Under!)

When I saw these photos I just knew they had to be from Colorado...we went to Estes Park last summer and have some very similar pictures...my husband kept asking me..."why are you taking so many pictures of water?" He just doesn't GET it. lol
