Big Sky

I was fortunate this past week to be able to tag along with Rick to Colorado. He was attending a movement analysis seminar at The Olympic Training Facility in Colorado Springs so we made sort of a mini vacation out of it. So much beauty to photograph, I was in heaven! The sky, the air, the mountains, all I can say is WOW! That little rental car took me all over. It was great to get the behind the scenes tour of the training center and while Rick was behaving in class, I was feeding the soul with some exploring. I went to Seven Falls, had crepes at a little town called Manitou Springs (where I also did some kid free whine free shopping) and visited the US Air Force Academy.

Taking the advice of a nice woman I met while getting a pedicure, Rick and I had lunch at the base of Pike's Peak at a little place called Wines of Colorado. We were able to enjoy great wine and lunch at the edge of a creek with a backdrop of the mountains. Makes me tingle just thinking about it.

Have you ever seen the Broadmore Resort? It is absolutely gorgeous. You may have to leave your left arm to pay for your stay, but once again it's gorgeous. We were here for dinner and drinks.

Garden of The Gods...no words necessary.

No trip to Colorado would be complete without rafting. We drove an hour west to raft on the Arkansas river and take a train ride through Royal Gorge. Yes it was beginner level and of course we had "chatty Cathy" in our raft. You know, the one that's always in every bunch, every class, every tour. We were soaked in the first few seconds but with such glorious scenery, I still had a permanent smile glued to my face the whole time.

For those of you in the Metro DC area, there is a group called Korean Focus that's worth checking out. Friend them on Facebook and you will get all of their updates regarding Korean cultural events all around Northern VA, Maryland and DC. Today they posted Seoul Selection
Looks like a cool resource if you are traveling to Seoul in the near future!

Taking the Show on the Road

Wow feels like ages since I have checked on all of my favorite bloggy friends. It's been a wonderfully busy summer this year. Hard to believe school begins for the boys in 2 weeks. Mom's happy, boys... not so much. Our visit with Nonna and Biz Nonna in NJ actually turned into a visit with Luca's Godmother and like 25 of Rick's closest cousins!! He has a very large family and it was so nice to spend time with such great people who we really don't see enough.

The kids went crabbing and on jet ski rides. Rick's Grandmother showed us blankets she is knitting for our children's children (how cool is that?) and Luca of course got his favorite, Nonna's nutella cookies

After packing on the pounds from all the delicious Italian food, we surprised the kids with a trip to Hershey Park just in case our pants weren't quite snug enough.

A Keane Evening

It's been a busy schedule here, visit to NJ to see Rick's mom and Nonna then a surprise trip for the boys to Hershey. Lots of pics whch I will post later but for now I am still singing the songs played by Keane last night at their amazing show. We went with friends to see them play at Merriweather Post Pavillion which is a great venue. They actually sold good wine and crab cakes to feast on while watching the opening act. Check out how close we were to the band. The images (taken with my I phone) aren't such great quality but ahhhh got to do this more often!
