It looks like a lot of fun. The scenery is gorgeous, I love the big trees. I also like those boots on the fashion pic, now that is patriotic!

Looks like a fun time! Did you get a puppy or is that Rio? He is adorable! What are those bubble things in the pool? I've never seen those! Glad you're home., too. Have a great week Pam.

What fun traditions. I'm glad you're home too- I missed my morning cup of Simple Details!

It looks like a wonderful 4th of July getaway, Pam! I'd love to visit Vail sometime (and so would the little skiers in my house). I spy a NE Patriots shirt in your photos……happy to see my home team was represented :)

Ann said...

Those are so lovely images...
Love the colors and the fashion.

OH how fun! I miss Vail, I used to ski there (as well as Keystone and Winter Park depending on what funds I had available) way back in the day! It looks like you had a lovely time!

Okay... now for the all consuming, burning question of the day... is the German grocer/deli in your neck of the woods still around? For the life of me I can't remember its name but I used to go there all the time when I was in high school and college. After I got married I started taking my husband and then the family... but mom moved away 13 years ago. I've started planning a trip to the area and hope to visit some old haunts.

Thanks! Have a lovely day!!

Looks like you had fun! Hoping things are not quite so dry now??

Andrea said...

Looks like the perfect getaway! That parade is pure Americana.

Jennifer L. Griffin said...

What an absolutely picture perfect setting! No wonder it's a tradition for your family. Looks like fun!

Great parade....such a gorgeous getaway...Went there a few years ago with friends...loved every inch of that area!

Looks like you had a great time. I have never been to Vail. Looks like a wonderful town.

Need those bubble things for my pool! Haven't been to Vail in years, but it really looks like you had a great time.

Holly said...

I need to get in on a Vail trip - looks like it was filled with fun. Those 4th of July boots are something else, aren't they? :) I'm such a home body - it's fun to explore but I love LOVE to come home.

What gorgeous scenery! I haven't been to Vail in 20+ years and had forgotten just how very beautiful it is there.

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

wow- looks like an awesome time in an awesome place!

Gretchen said...

It looks like you were able to fit in just about everything available and it's so much fun to get away.

Ahhh, Vail...love that place. Bummed you missed out on fireworks this year. That happened here last year but they extra good this year b/c of the leftovers!

Katie {Miss Dixie} said...

So beautiful, it looks like you had an amazing vacation. Loving the fashion for the fourth! haha.
