Two of mine got serendipitous and took advantage of a pretty awesome flight deal and came down to visit for a day and a half.
Boy we spent those precious hours in true Eyre fashion, trying to pack in as much as humanly possible, and I have to say I think we did a pretty good job!
We have a little tradition of hiking together, so we spent half of our time hiking Flat Iron again.
Yeah, I should have titled this post “groundhog day”…ha! (Remember I just conquered that thing with two other good friends for my birthday a couple weeks before this? back HERE).
And here we were again.
And it was just as gorgeous and filled with good conversation amidst the huffing and puffing to climb all those boulders.
Our car is one of those teeny specks way down there below:
We went up a little further this time and found some pretty amazing rock formations to explore.
Can you spot my sisters at the tippy top of those columns down below?
Let’s zoom in a little…here they are a tad bit closer:
We were blazing new trails through the brambles and brush up there and I loved exploring the top, seeing Saren and Saydi come out at the tippy-top of those boulders when we split up to try to get a better vantage point.
Favorite other things:
Exploring my favorite art museum together.
I may be a little biased here, but to me there is no one in the world better to soak in art with than my sisters.
Loved that a lot of the art that spoke to us reminded us of our hike earlier in the day:
We spent some good time in front of this one:
Check out the paint color mixtures up close:
Isn’t art a beautiful thing?
Loved this one too:
True beauty of creation right there!
We ate a delicious Italian dinner nestled under a twinkling tree on a little patio with live music playing as a background to our talk, talk, talking.
This screenshot is from that night too…we were talking through some prayer/connecting with God ideas and this is one of my favorite scriptures coupled with one of my favorite quotes:
The sun lighting up my sister’s like angels as we rode bikes to and from breakfast that second morning.
Dropped them off at the airport wishing so much that we had just a little longer, but filled with gratitude for that precious time carved out.
