Now that my sisters and I are older and all out of the house, it’s harder to get the whole fam-damily together for a vacation. Schedules are all over the place and Sami and Austin are in a different city now and Rachel and Chuckie were and it’s just…life.
The last time we were all together for a vacation was 2009. The first weekend we were gone, Michael Jackson died.
Fast-forward to a couple weeks ago. We all reunited in Denver, to visit Sami and Austin for four days.
And Prince died.
We are now afraid to go on another vacation because we have this unexplainable power. Our collective energies outside of Louisville, Kentucky are too strong and a major pop star pays the price.
I think we’re going to Gulf Shores next summer and I’m genuinely concerned that if we can all go, who is in danger.
Other than the passing of sweet, talented Prince, our four-and-a-half dayish jaunt to Denver was all kinds of awesome. We visited Boulder (Hippie HQ), Golden (The Cutest) and Red Rocks (I’m in love). And climbed a mountain and ate good food and had all kinds of fun together.
And did not smoke any weed despite landing in Denver on 4.20. #regrets
I compiled a list of quotes that you’ll see pop up here and there on the blog, so stay tuned.
For now though, let me show you our trip – it’s much easier (and prettier) to do through pictures.
