Happy Labor Day peeps! I hope you are enjoying this extra day off (if you get one!). I'm actually having a lazy day with the boyfriend but we have plans for delicious dinner and pumpkin beers in our future tonight. I feel like Labor Day is the official end of summer. It's like the last weekend to really enjoy warm weather and all your summer things before it's time to get ready for fall. Summer 2015 was maybe the best summer I've had in awhile. I took a few trips, ate a ton of really good food, and just got to kick it with my beebs and my friends. I thought it would be fun to share some photos from my summer to say goodbye and to get ready for fall!
I started the summer by taking a 4 day trip to Colorado where I promptly fell in love with the mountains and can't wait to go back next year! It was a ton of hiking and good food and beer.
Hiking in Red Rocks
We saw this on the side of the road and had to stop for pictures. It was like being in painting.
Tour and tasting at New Belgium brewery
Hiking in Rocky National Park
The best part of the hike was Emerald Lake at the end of the trail. Snowy and cold in May was craziness
We went to the drive in to see Jurassic World in June and then last week we went to an outdoor movie at a winery to see Back to the Future. We got to that one late so enjoy this picture from the drive in.
Dating a huge Cardinal fan means that we went to 3 games this summer (all of which went into extra innings!) and we also watch games on tv all summer. You can't beat the view at Busch Stadium.
New York: HAM Reunion
At the end of July I went to Rochester, NY to meet up with my awesome friends Meredith and Amanda. We've been friends since San Diego and haven't gotten together in 2 years! It was the funnest weekend and we all brought our boyfriends so that was cool to all hang out! I am thinking we need HAM reunions every year! (HAM=Heather, Amanda, Meredith)
Wine tasting at Casa Larga. I learned that I love Reisling.
Niagara Falls! We stopped here for a few hours before road tripping home.
Taking Back Sunday at Ballpark Village
I went with my roommate and some friends to see one of our favorite bands, Taking Back Sunday. It was a blast!
We also went to the lake for a night to visit Jarrett's dad at his new lake house. The girls had a blast and it was a really fun, chill weekend to be at the lake.
Jarrett water skiing
Tell me all about your summer friends! I hope you had a blast and definitely let me know if there's something I need to add to my list for next summer!
