Sunday’s Snippets: Fall Colors

Oh how I love Sundays!

It's my day to relax.  And even though I publish my Snippets post on Sunday, I actually write these posts and schedule them ahead of time.  I do my best to makes Sundays lap-top free!  I need this time to spend time with my family and take a break from my usual routine.

Today I am extra excited to share some snippets of our lives with you.  Every October, our family takes a drive to see the beautiful fall colors.  This year, we spent an entire 2 days in Estes Park, Colorado.  This is a part of Colorado I don't typically see--and I loved it!  Fall is simply my favorite time of year.

It really doesn't get much better than this!


Just as we pulled into town, we spotted 30-40 elk at a local baseball park.  Yes, apparently, these elk love baseball!  We watched as boys played ball all around the elk.  They hit baseballs--literally between the legs of this bull--and it weren't even phased!  During this time of year, elk are everywhere.  They are known to walk down the streets.

Only in Colorado can you hang out on a baseball diamond with elk!  It was incredible.

We spent the day exploring the state park, watching elk and listening to them bugle, and playing in the leaves. The aspens were turning yellow, and it was still 75+ degree in the Rocky Mountains.  What a beautiful day, and a beautiful part of the world!

Just a few of my favorite shots...
