Today was Stella’s first riverfest! Our town does an annual festival that includes a kayak rodeo (basically a funny competition where kayakers compete to do the coolest “tricks” in the water hole), a floating competition of junk boats that people build, live music, drinks and food. Charlie was working, so he had to miss it, but Stells and I had so much fun!

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pictures – it looked like rain when we started walking down and I didn’t want to worry about my DSLR. Sadly, we got a couple of drops and the clouds dissipated. Colorado needs rain SO badly. šŸ™ 


Make your own blended margarita. šŸ™‚ 

Mmmmm….dirt and grass!

After three hours, we walked about 1/4 mile down river to a fire pit area with benches to nurse and get her to sleep. There was just SO much fun stuff to look at that a nap was not happening in the middle of the festival!


  1. Wow- looks like a blast! I am so jealous- your town seems like an amazing place to live!

  2. Okay, it is decided… if we ever decide to move from the Dominican Republic, we are moving to your town! It reminds me a lot of the tiny town of 2000 people that I am from… except better and prettier!! It looks/sounds like you and Stella had such a great day. A shame that Charlie had to miss out. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! šŸ™‚

  3. That looks awesome! Hopefully you guys get rain soon! My uncle said it's bad out there. šŸ™

  4. Looks awesome! I thought we would see you out in the kayak doing tricks? Ha, I'd rather drink the blended margaritas too šŸ™‚

  5. What a fun festival. Your little town intrigues me.And I love that Stella wears her little hat. So cute.

  6. That looks like so much damn fun, your town seems like there is always good stuff going on. I'm jealous!

  7. Looks like so much fun. I love summer!

  8. That looks like a super good time!!! You are very fortunate to live in Colorado – it is such a wonderful place. We always hope that B will get transferred there for work – it's the only place that we both desperately want to move to!

  9. Superb outing, I must say.You look happy, and Stella does too. So nice!

  10. That looks like so much fun!!!!

  11. I swear Stella has a more active social life than me….lol. Love the pic of her on the pebbles.

  12. What a fabulous day!!! I'm so jealous – I miss Colorado…
