I mentioned last week that our family was going up to Dillon, CO in the rocky mountains this weekend. Â David had never been there in the summer and it’s my favorite time there, so I wanted to be sure we went and there was no better weekend than Father’s Day and the Frisco BBQ challenge. Â We got there on Friday evening just in time to grill out, have some drinks, and relax on the patio watching sunset. Â Â We decided to grill chicken and apple sausages, bell peppers and pineapple for a summer-y meal. This little guy loved dinner too! On Saturday morning (after Aiden slept through the night!), David and I took turns going on our respective runs – his 8 miles and mine 4.5 miles. Â This was the longest I have run in aÂ loooongÂ time and it was on hills and in altitude, so nevertheless, it kicked my butt! Â The scenery was beautiful and the air so fresh. Â Â We got home, ate gluten-free pancakes, drank tea (and water), put Aiden down for a nap and then headed out to the BBQ competition around 1:00. Â Our friends, Ashley and Keith, decided to meet us up there too! Â There were hundreds of vendors and no way I could make a decision on where to get food from, so the boys figured that the booths with the longest lines were our criteria. Â Needless to say, we were starving when we got there, so as we were waiting in line, David got us some brisket and pulled pork appetizers. Â My favorite dish of the day were these ribs. Â The BBQ sauce was to die for and I think my husband is going to make it his life mission to buy it from them. Â At this point, Aiden was restless and needed to get out of the stroller. Â It was just in time for the pig races! Â Unfortunately, it still took too much time for Aiden to get the races started and a temper tantrum ensued, so we missed them anyways. Â I tried really hard to keep him occupied, but didn’t end up working. Â Â The boys got more dishes throughout the day including more brisket, pulled pork, kettle corn, sweet potato fries, wings, and mac n’ cheese. Â They consumed their weight in food I think. Â I think I got some gluten in something that I ate because after a little bit, I really wasn’t feeling very well, so I just stuck to water for the rest of the day. Here is the evidence of a successful BBQ competition. Â He was a disaster. Â It was definitely a fun event! The rest of the night was spent at the cabin soothing our big bellies and watching sports. Â We did manage to make some smores after we put Aiden to bed. Sunday was a rough day for me. Â Aiden didn’t sleep well Saturday night and I stayed up way too late, so I was exhausted. Â We left the mountains a little before 10 am and as we were driving down the mountain, I started getting really queasy, dizzy, and lightheaded. When we arrived home, I was worse than ever and started throwing up. Â The rest of the day was spent on the couch trying to feel better. Â I chocked it up to altitude sickness, which I’ve never had before and I hope to never get again. Â I feel about 90% today. Â I felt terrible because it was Father’s Day and I was totally unable to do anything! Anyways, other than the minor illness of Sunday, it was a great getaway weekend! Â I think we might have to make this a tradition in our family. Questions: What did you do to celebrate Father’s Day? What’s your favorite BBQ dish? Have you ever gotten altitude sickness?
