Spring break, it’s all about sunshine and tan lines… in Colorado. On Sunday, I helped deliver over three tons of water, food, and clothing to fire victims in Ashland and Englewood, KS. It was a humbling reminder to be thankful for what I have. If you’d like to donate to the fire relief fund, do so here.

Coming home to Colorado afterward was a time to reflect on what exactly I do have. That included looking at newborn calves with my grandma. 81 years young, she still drives the John Deere Gator to look at the year’s calf crop and shares stories from previous years.

Here are a few pictures that captured the afternoon.
