Ashtyn Arrived on July 11th, 2012

Install Theme

We leave for home tomorrow and this trip to the mountains has been so memorable. Today it stormed all day and we awoke from our nap to thunder! Ashtyn has never heard thunder before so we all went out on the porch and enjoyed some hot coco (I may have enjoyed some Kahlua and milk) and watched the rain and lightning :)

Family Hike to Rainbow Falls today :)

We took a nice 5 mile hike to the rainbow falls this morning and I carried her on my back :)

Ashtyn’s 1st time fishing :) We caught 15 fish!!! Ashtyn did awesome and loved being on the shore exploring.

Bundled up on the balcony before bed tonight.

Tomorrow I am photographing a wedding on top of the far mountains that you see in the pictures! We have to take an old fashion ski lift to get to the venue - it should be pretty epic. In preparation for the wedding, we took a trip to the nearby area and scoped it all out. Ashtyn couldn’t resist dipping her feet in the lake :)

Also, my parents arrived last night and are staying with us for the remainder of our trip - Ashtyn was beyond excited to see them.

swimmingwithsharks asked: You know, I don't even mind if you don't get back to me on this, as long as you read it. You and Lindy are who I aspire to be when I get married and become a parent. You seem like such a great father and I just adore your family. Much love to you all

I’ll do you one better. I’ll read it and respond publicly because this was super sweet. We are far from perfect, but I am in love with the life we’ve created. Thanks for the support!

This “then and now” segment is a little closer to my heart. The top picture is Lindy when she was 21 years old and we weren’t even married. The bottom photograph is our daughter Ashtyn at age 2 - walking the same meadow.
When Lindy and I were dating and we visited the mountains - we stayed in the houses you see on the left. Eventually, we got married up here and we ended up staying in that same home. We have fond memories of napping and exploring this meadow and being able to bring our daughter here years later is really special.
