Happy Anniversary and The Berry Picker Trail

A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short. --Andre Maurois

I agree with this quote! We celebrated our 3 year anniversary while in Vail and had a blast! These three years have flown by and been wonderful.

The best part of this vacation is that Wade didn't have to go to work and we were able to spend all our time together for a week!

On August 9th we decided to do something different for our anniversary--take a hike!

We started at Lions Head at about 8,000 ft above sea level. (base camp shall we call it) ;) and hiked to the top of the mountain which was a little over 10,000 ft above sea level. That 2,000 ft gain was hard earned! It took us about 2.5 hours to reach the summit and over another hour to make it back down. That Gondola ride was sure looking good...but really the hike was better!

The views were beautiful!

This was definitely one of, if not the, hardest hike we've ever done. Both our heads were feeling a bit funny by the time we reached the top and we had to stop several times for small breaks and water. You can kind of tell how steep it was here in the one of the clearings we walked through.

By the time we got back down to our room, we were both beat! But you know how good it feels to be tired from playing outside all day right? Well that's how it felt! Much better than being tired from sitting at a desk all day thinking or doing "real work"

We thank the Lord for three wonderful years of marriage and pray for many many more! I couldn't ask for a better partner to be on this adventure with! Year 4 here we come!
