September brought us quite a bit of family time this year. Gavin, Olivia and I took a short, but wonderfully sweet, trip to Colorado to visit my family for my littlest sister's wedding. A family vacation came right in time, because I think after such a busy summer and the F*Sho just two weeks back, we needed to recharge our batteries!
Here's a quick little photo roll of our trip.....
We spent the day out and about exploring the area. Neither Olivia nor Gavin had ever been to Colorado (at least not that Olivia can remember) so the mountainous views and native landscape was new to them. We went to Morrison, Co on Saturday afternoon, had lunch and the Red Rocks Grill, and the spent the rest of our time in Red Rocks Park.
We then spent the evening at my littlest sister's wedding at the Mount Vernon Country Club in Golden, Co. Here she is during her ceremony on the beautiful deck of the Aspen Room overlooking miles and miles of mountains and city. The Aspen were just beautiful this time of year.

The day after the wedding, we spent with my dad and family, which included a private tour of Beacon Printing, my father's print shop in Denver. I probably never told ya I was a printer's daughter, eh?
I have to say, it was so nostalgic to be back in my dad's shop. The smell of the ink and paper... and oil brought me back to being a kid again.
I'm also proud to say that Beacon Printing has a hand in all those super cool Conscious Alliance posters I've been eyeing up (and collecting!) for years. I love music poster art and Conscious Alliance has always brought the best posters, with the best cause, to the industry through ongoing, grassroots food collection and hunger awareness programs, primarily by organizing food drives at concerts and music events.The donations they collect benefit local food pantries nationwide and economically isolated Native American reservations.
We also stopped into Stockton's Plum Creek Stables which is owned and operated by family as well. Plum Creek Stables provides horseback riding lessons, trail rides on horseback, horse boarding, Picnics and Parties in their western town picnic area, hayrides through Chatfield State park, Native American field trips, Girl Scout and boy Scout activities and lots more.
|Yes, this actually happened while we were there!|

And then home and moving on to next month.... We are filled with new ideas and plan to finish out the last half of this year with a bang!
