Weekend getaway!

This past weekend we had the great opportunity to go to Estes Park for a weekend of hiking, snowshoeing, and spending time with friends. We were so blessed when we got the invite and looked at our calendar and saw that Josh had the whole weekend off! Since Monday was a holiday I had the day off of work and although Josh was scheduled to work he was able to get a sub for the first half of the day.

We went with our friends the Short's and Nordgren's and we were able to bring our dogs thanks to a pet friendly cabin rental. This was also a blessing to not have to find a dog sitter. We also got a pass to Rocky Mountain National Park and although dogs are not allowed in the park they are allowed in the National Forest which is right near the park. We arrived on Friday night and went straight to bed. We took the dogs hiking on Saturday and then spent Sunday snowshoeing through RMNP. Monday we got up and around and checked out and then drove home. There was also a hot tub at the cabin so that made it even better!

If you want to see pictures, please visit our Picasa album. There is a separate album for each day.

Have a great day!
