Summer in no paticular order

I have neglected this blog for quite sometime now; this is our summer in brief.
First, I have some old river pictures that I uploaded but never finished a post. [the date of this post is a reflection of that]
Remnants of our June river trip:

At the beginning of the summer Ryan and I did a Triathlon in Vail. It was absolutely gorgeous up there. We stayed at a really nice resort which made for a very relaxing weekend.
This is where we did the swim portion of the race. Ryan and I were 2 of about 5 people who were not wearing wetsuits. BIG mistake I could barely breath the whole time. It was freezing!
A small reward after the raceOur hotelRyan and I purchased a Tent!

We used it twice this summer and hope to use it many more times in the future.
My sister Jamie and her family came in town from North Carolina and spent a couple weeks with us. It was great to have them here. It was so fun to wake up to my little nieces in the morning.

We celebrated many summer/ post summer birthday!and saving the best news for last...
Ryan and I bought a house!!! Well right now we have some dirt, we decided to build a new home and it will be done in 6months. We are so excited and hope the time flies.

The day we signed the papers. This will be our lot, behind the green house. They should break ground this week! Yipee.

Today was Ryan's last day before he starts his new job. We wanted to do something fun before it is back to a 40hr work week. We heard about this old mining landmark by the name of Georgetown. In 1859 it was established, built on the discovery of gold and silver. It was so fun to run around to all of the historic buildings and capture them through photography. I love taking pictures of structures, so this was a gold mine! Along our mini road trip we stopped at Beaujos Pizza, and the one and only Buffalo Bill's Grave. The views where absolutely gorgeous, see for yourself...
