July is one of my favorite months. It starts off with a national celebration, always has nice weather, and my birthday is smack dab in the middle of it. I have a habit of taking summer vacation for the month and this year was no exception.
We kicked things off with a journey to Chelan, Washington for the 4th of July. My sister-in-law, Mya, helps run Tildio Winery and we figured it was about time we did some wine tasting there. My parents joined us and we had a blast!
From there, we returned to Colorado and I journeyed to golf with my buddy Cletus in Nebraska. We played 36 holes in 24 hours and enjoyed each other's company thoroughly. I polished up Hefe for a birthday cruise on the 16th.
The 2nd half of July was spent in Montana and Cape Cod. In Montana, we witnessed KeAnna and Cole's wedding and celebrated with old and new friends.
In Cape Cod, we had lots of smiles and water time with Trish's fabulous family.
These photos are just a sampling of the 150+ that I polished and published. I think photos are a great way to tell a story, so I added captions to all of them in my Summer 2021 Album. I've also embedded it below.
You might notice the album doesn't end with Cape Cod photos. That's because August was full of adventures too! I had to return to Montana to get our van, raft, and dogs. My dad joined me for the return road trip and his brother, Jimmy, joined us for a week at the ranch.
Then, I spent a week at the Summer Tech Forum in Crested Butte, complete with a 24-hour trip to Boulder to help Abbie move into CU. After a weekend in Telluride, I returned home, worked on my SpringOne presentation, and got ready for Jack's 17th birthday party.
The party was a success, Abbie joined a sorority today, and we're looking forward to a colorful fall. I love this time of year with the colors, cooler air, and football season. Go Broncos!
