An outdoor 4th of July

 

So with the great (but hot) weather we have been having, it was only appropriate to spend the entire fourth of July weekend outside!  We kicked off our weekend with a quick nine holes of golf at a little course in Boulder County.  They were celebrating their 50th so we got $5 golf.  Hard to beat! Just bring your bugspray.

On Sunday, we ended up parking at Hoosier Pass and heading out on a trail.  I am still not sure what trail we hiked but best I can tell, we were on a jeep road/county road with a bit of snow (you can see that on the right of the photo).  It was a bit windy and cloudy but we managed to avoid any rain until we were tucked back in the car.

And no hiking day would be complete without a few Colorado beers.  First stop was Breckenridge Brewery for lunch.  I had a tasty Trademark IPA and a brisket sandwich.  What a great way to relax!  After that, we made an unpictured stop at Prost in Frisco for some German beers and to pick up some brats for the grill the next day.

And finally, the big event!  We brought desserts and some drinks (a little Polestar goes a long way on a hot day!).  The rest of the spread was MIL provided! It was delicious.  Aside from the patriotic strawberries, we made homemade ice cream from a book from the 50’s and S’mores out on the firepit.

Overall, a pretty successful celebration of America’s birthday and a glorious way to spend a three day weekend!

Cheers to Friday,
