October in Breckenridge, Colorado
We are so excited to be spending a week in the Rocky Mountains this October! We will be road tripping from Illinois to Colorado on the same route as this summer but with a few friends in tow. On the list of places to visit so far are Vail, Frisco, Summit County and of course Breckenridge. It’s going to be a real treat to explore this area in the fall and do some more hikes before the snow arrives. As regards activities we are still in the planning stages so any tips or recommendations email us via our contact page
Thanksgiving in Atlanta, Georgia
Georgia is my second home, I absolutely love the South, and what’s even better my best friend is hosting us for Thanksgiving this year!! Rich has never explored this wonderful State properly so in between all the turkey and family gatherings will be spending some time in Atlanta and the surrounding areas. The heritage here is brilliant so we will definitely be taking the time to learn more about that and enjoy some lesser know treats!
Hot Air Balloon Festival- Harvard, Illinois
On Sunday 4th September we headed to Harvard’s Inaugural Hot Air Balloon Festival! We were very excited about seeing the night glows and gaining a perspective on how big the balloons actually were! It was completely free to attend and ran Friday-Sunday. Check out their website for more details and maybe we will see some of you there. www.harvardballoonfest.com. There was a great family atmosphere all round with plenty of food trucks, inflatables for the children and of course hot air balloons. It was a beautiful sight watching them being inflated as the sun went down, burning fire up into the air. They were effected by the wind so much more than we had anticipated, we must admit we were pleased to be on the ground looking up at them! It was a fun couple of hours but a long way to drive.
