driving for 9 hours through kansas can get pretty tiring. so, as soon as we get to chris' parents house, we head straight for their backyard. it's the perfect spot to unwind in, especially from a long roadtrip. summers in colorado are my favorite. as much as i love my midwestern heat and humidity, colorado's crisp dry air is so refreshing, and the fact that it cools off at night is wonderful. we actually ate outside on their back porch everyday we were there. we haven't done that all summer. crazy, i know.
