ghost town

Saturday we headed to the mountains for some hiking, which is how we spend a lot of our weekends. This however was the first time we went to a ghost town. It was A.MAZING. The ghost town was pretty cool, but the beautiful mountains and wildflowers were spectacular.
Glad we have friends who love to escape the city too. McDonoughs are always up for a good adventure.
I want a yard full of wildflowers...but not of the dandelion variety.



It's best not to tell Ry to smile for pics. You end up with either monkey face (as seen below) or squinty eyes (as seen above).








Sophie and her best friend Belle. They both have great style (and know how to rock a yellow sweat suit).


Plumb tuckered out on the way down.

We balanced our day with mother nature with a nice dose of outlet shopping at the end...a perfect day.

Love the pics...especially the one of your family! What a fun place! Maybe we'll have to get outdoorsy now, so you'll have to tell me where you went. Those pics of Rylee are so funny...love it!
