Weekend in Fruita

on April 23, 2018

Hi there! How’s it going?? Back to the Monday we go! Anyone else nursing a weekend hangover…and no I dont mean from drinking 😉

We had a pretty great weekend…full of lots of sunshine and our first intro back into “hot”!

On Friday, Brooke, Jasper and I met up with Ken after work and we hit the road for the desert! The drive there didnt look very convincing as we hit a good amount of snow?!



Say, what?!

Jasper takes it all in stride.


We got to camp and climbed in the trailer and were quick to call it a night. It rained a bit overnight, but from there on out we were good!

The trip was a mini-camp for Ken to get in some good riding. I am currently tapering for a race this weekend, so I got to spend most of my time playing bikes around camp with Brooke!

We also did some hiking and such!



The views were incredible…as were the 70 something degree temps 🙂







Saturday morning, Ken went out on his mountain bike for about 2.5 hours while we played around camp. When he got back, we had some lunch and loaded into the truck. Ken and Brooke ventured to a dinosaur museum (which she did NOT like because it was really life-like). While they were in the pre-historic time, I set out for a 6 mile run….in shorts and a tank top. ha!

The run went well (7:59 average) on the pavement and I even saw a friend from Steamboat who was out riding his bike!! Such a small world. Since the museum was a bust, the husband and kiddo went to the bike park. It was a much bigger hit! Played there for a while before grabbing some ice cream and heading to Cabelas to explore.

Once we had enough shopping, Ken dropped us off at the most GIANT PARK EVER and he set out for his second 2+ hour ride of the day.








She was a bit tired afterwards 😉


We made it back to camp and hung out a bit before Ken got back from his ride. Then it was DINNERTIME!! I pre-made a lasagna so all we had to do was heat it up. Luxury camping 😉

Everyone was exhausted so we were all quick to bed.

Sunday started out with a mountain bike ride for Ken. Brooke and I made some mud pies and enjoyed the sunshine!



This guy loves to camp!


When Ken got back, I went out for just over an hour on my mountain bike! He sent me on some new to me trails and they were amazing!! Loving my new bike!!


The views stayed awesome.




Never enough desert for this guy!


While I packed up the trailer, Ken got out for an hour of gravel road riding to conclude his weekend of riding! He did a good job of wearing himself out!

Once back, we loaded up and hit the road! We stopped at Costco because it was kind of on the way home. Got home around 8:30, put the kid to bed and relaxed a bit before calling it a night. It was a wonderful weekend together!

Today has been a Monday with a side of Monday 😉 Lots of unloading, unpacking and laundry….and your typical post-camping weekend blues. Luckily, it is just the beginning of the Spring/Summer season!

Hope you had a good one as well!!
