Best of 2013 ...Travel

I tried to take pictures of trips we have taken this year.  I'm not always successful but this post will have some of the highlights.

February started with a trip to Florida.  All I can say is been there and done that!

May was graduation month in our family.  It started with our youngest graduating from Boston University on Friday, May17th.  We are  proud of her earning her Masters of Social Work.  Here are a few pictures of that day.  We were really sad not to be with her after her ceremony because we were on a plane heading to Denver!!  I love the picture of Jim helping LM getting ready for the ceremony.


We flew to Denver and arrived at midnight got up and attended Melinda's graduation.  We are now on the graduation marathon.  Melinda graduated from University of Colorado Denver with a Masters of Science in Accountancy and a MBA.  We are very proud of her accomplishments. 

May was really busy for us with travel.  We had a business meeting following the graduations so our oldest daughter joined us for fun!  I love the Art Museum in Chicago and we started there with a great picture of the lion.  We took some great selfies and ate at our favorites restaurants Mercat a la Planxa and Le Colonial.  

Door County Wisconsin

In June I joined my oldest daughter for a trip to Door County.  I had heard of it for years so we decided to go.  It was beautiful and we had a great time.  I love the water of Lake Michigan or as the locals say the Green Bay (part of Lake Michigan), it is perfectly clear with smooth stones.  We enjoyed some farm to table restaurants.  I saw some beautiful quilts on the tour of the Light House. 

We returned back to Madison and I just love the capitol building of Wisconsin.


Really getting into selfies


 El Mercardo

  The Alamo

We ate at some restaurants while in San Antonio, Luke, Arcade and my all time favorite Paesanos.

Washington DC

 Still Working on Selfies

I rode a ferry from National Harbor to Mount Vernon for a tour.  I loved arriving by ferry because the view was beautiful.  

The best part of the Smithsonian for me was Julia Childs kitchen. Bon Appétit ya'll!!

Fayetteville Arkansas

We went to Fayetteville for a wedding in November.  It was my first time to Arkansas and I will say that this part of Arkansas was very unexpected.  The fall leaves were spectacular.

Rocky Mountain National Park

Since 1989 we have traveled to Estes Park Colorado.  We go several times each year so I have a ton of pictures from there, so I will only post pictures from Thanksgiving in Estes Park.  We had a wonderful time with our family while there and yes I cooked a lot!!  Those pictures will be a food post.

Catch the Glow Parade burr!
