This year my sister Kim decided she wanted to cook Thanksgiving dinner. We started out thinking we'd have four or five people for dinner and ended up with eleven. My parents flew in from Michigan and surprised us on Thanksgiving day. I don't think Shane or I have ever been so shocked. It was really exciting and special. I haven't spent Thanksgiving with my parents in 7 years!! We had a wonderful day filled with family, new and old friends, lots of laughter and overly full bellies. I have to say, I think my first attempt at cooking a turkey was a success. My parents were only in town for a day and a half so we spent the next few days soaking up time with them. Hiking in Boulder and meeting Kim's new dog were a few highlights.

A trip to Boulder would not be complete without a hike up Boulder's famous Sanitas trail.

Christine & Shane,
We truly had a wonderful time on our recent visit. I wish we could spend more time together! Less than a month until Breckenridge
