For the past few weeks, the girls and I have been joining a kids running club in Breckenridge. It’s been fun meeting up with other trail runners. The kids range in age from 8-17. On Monday we ran up Boreas Pass rd. to Baker’s Tank and then down the trails. It was an awesome pre-run for a race on Wednesday evening.
Another amazing, fun, friend filled day in the books. It was a busy day but so relaxing at the same time!
Sam got up super early to race the Firecracker 50 in Breckenridge. He signed up with a partner and did the second 25 mile lap. This race is brutal with grueling uphills and tight switchbacks and singletrack. He was thrilled to have beaten his time from last year and not get a flat!
Below, coming into the finish.
Alice taking a break before the Frisco Parade. This year we got to watch the parade instead of riding on a float. It was pretty relaxing…but I did miss the fun of creating a float!
I was so busy enjoying our day that I didn’t really take many pictures. After the parade, the kids sat down in the front yard to split up their candy and Scott and I went downtown to listen to the music. After a few songs we headed back to Breck to watch Sam’s finish. Once Sam got home and showered, we went to a friend’s house for a bbq. Due to wildfires all around us, firework shows were cancelled. We are so dry and just praying for some rain and cooler temps. Nevertheless, it was such a nice evening hanging out in good company.
Early morning, great day, early night! Happy Birthday, America!
Alice, Paige, Mason and I went on a short hike today up to the Old Dillon Res. I had never done this hike and it did not disappoint! The views of the lake and the entire county were amazing! It was a great way to stretch our legs and for me to get some pictures😌. Happy Sunday, friends! I hope you are getting outside too. Love where you live.
We have two June birthdays around here, Alice and Mason. Alice celebrated with a fun pontoon ride around Lake Dillon. She invited a few friends and we headed out on the water for a couple hours. It was a bit windy but everyone made the best of it 🙂.
Happy 15th birthday to Alice!
Mason chose to take two friends to the Copper Wrecktangle (ninja warrior course). They also got to race go karts and take a ride on the alpine coaster. It was such a fun day!
In the afternoon, Mason opened presents and played games with his siblings. It was a great day to turn 11!
