I’ll start out with the bachelorette day. We wanted to start out the day with a hike in Rocky Mountain National Park but that was before we discovered there was a $20 fee per car to enter the state park. We were likely going to have to take two cars so no one was too keen on the idea of paying $40 for a two-hour or so hike, so we stayed around Estes Park instead and walked around the lake. Side note: I’ve been to Estes Park more times than I can count. Most of our church and school retreats were in Estes Park and as soon as I drove in and breathed that mountain air, I started having flashbacks of every retreat I’d ever been on! Talk about weird.
The plan for the bachelorette day was to follow this schedule: walk around and be outdoorsy, lunch, visit two wineries, make it to the nail appointments by 4, and be at our dinner reservations by 7:30. We allowed ourselves plenty of time for the wineries which ended up working our way, since we were stuck at one while a thunderstorm rolled in. I was so glad we’d already finished our outdoors lunch by the time the rain started! And let me tell you, rain in the Rockies is NOT like rain here. When it rains there, it pours buckets.

Yeah. So the pictures will forever stay on my computer and never see the light of day. But take my word for it, they are hilarious. And blackmail-worthy.
