In June of 2019 we took a vacation with the family to Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. We’ve been to the “Ivory Coast” before but this was our first visit to the famed “30A” highway and it’s quaint little strip of towns. Towards the end of the week, the tide got pretty rough and there was some seafood, but it was beautiful nonetheless. The boys are just big enough now to really understand and enjoy a trip like this. It wasn’t our typical trip to the mountains like I prefer but it was still a nice getaway.
In February we took our first trip of the year to our place in Oklahoma, Camp Bravo. The boys made a fort, we made camp coffee, shot guns and had a good weekend.
2018 surely ended in a bang for the Boyd family. I had some vacation time to burn at work so I decided to head north to Colorado one more time. My mom grew up in Colorado Springs and my grandma and Aunt Jenny (Aunt Jennifer the Great to the boys) still live there. So we made the long drive up I-25 to visit for a week. The weather turned cold fast but it was great to get away. We normally have a routine in Colorado Springs but this time we strayed from our regular spots. We didn't make it to Garden of the Gods, but we went to a new place for us, Castle Rock. Aunt Jenny took us to her fave high-school-makeout-spot, Austin Bluffs and it was amazing. If I lived there I would ride those trails all the time. Of course, we went to Manitou Springs and that gigantic antique mall but we didn't make it up to Helen Hunt Falls and that's ok. I know the boys had a blast and I'm pretty sure grandma and Aunt Jenny enjoyed the visit as well. I'm already anxious to return.
We took our summer vacation to Colorado this past July and had a blast as usual. These pictures are all from our favorite place near South Fork called Upper Beaver Creek Campground. I did my best to shoot and edit some video of our time there and you can see that here as well.
