Wanderlove

Back in March, we took all three of our girls on a road trip to Breckenridge, Colorado to spend Spring Break in the mountains. Just the two of us went to Colorado last year, and it was then that we really discovered what wanderlust means to us, and it was time to share that with the kids.

Wanderlust means believing that there’s always something else out there for us, and we have to go find it. That’s what the trip to Breck was all about – showing the kids that there’s so much out there, and it’s more beautiful than they expected. The mountains never stop amazing us, and we feel so fortunate that we could pass that on to our kiddos.

We participate in a lot of twitter chats, and one of the more common questions we see is some variation of “What are you doing to encourage the next generation to get outside?” We’re being the example and taking them with us, showing them that there’s nothing better than being in the mountains with no WiFi.

We all skied for the first time, rode in a gondola, went snowshoeing, even saw a moose! The girls all received their Jr. Ranger certifications from Rocky Mountain National Park, where we saw plenty of deer and what Sprague Lake looks like when it’s not completely frozen. Best trip ever would be an understatement, but it’ll have to do…until next time.

Wanderlust took us to Colorado, wanderlove will bring us back.
