Photo Catch Up

Our local bounce house is pretty awesome - we tried it out for the first time and I was impressed - even the indoor crazy kid places are better in CO :)

My next sous chef in training

Working from home while the kiddos are out of school for break can be challenging . . . but my lunch breaks are worth it. This is one of our neighborhood parks - picnic and swinging with a view!

Just a normal drive to school

One of our neighbors in the back yard waiting to see if the kids are tossing apples off the deck.

The night time view from the mountain is not getting old.

Thanksgiving lunch at school was also mustache day - Mr. Crandall fully committed!

A photo break while shopping - why do kids grow at the same time?! Either no one needs anything, or suddenly no ones pants fit!

That was the title of the 4th grade play last night. Sam scored one of the roles with multiple solos and she was awesome. I asked her if she was nervous and she looked at me like I just asked her if she knew how to use a spoon!! Haha - not an ounce of fear in that one, only sunshine and rainbows!

A Saturday

We went and did a little hiking up north yesterday. 

In the Springs there were 40mph winds - I literally watched Evan’s puffer vest turn into a parachute and lift him off the ground. At the same time it ripped his glasses off and threw them 25ft! It was a scene for sure - I went to let go of him to get the glasses and he started to take off, as did a trashcan lid that was flying towards us! So yea . . . we went up north!

We explored and hiked Golden Gate Canyon State Park. It was a beautiful day and some great views!

On the way home we swung through downtown Denver and grabbed an early dinner at Rock Bottom. Those are my people!

Happy #39

Jay turned 39 on Sunday. To celebrate we went up to Golden for the afternoon and then on to Red Rocks to see Weezer.

Sunday afternoon was Marlie's GS bridging ceremony. I am so proud of her for sticking with it and shooting for her Silver award!

Side note - automatically the coolest Mom at any event with my new sweatshirt!

Day Trip to Breckenridge

We were missing Marlie this weekend while she went to Girl Scout Camp - but we still did some exploring. It started out as a trip up to Kenosha Pass to see the Aspens turning for fall - and we did do that - but we also headed through Fairplay and the actual South Park.

Snow on Pike's Peak coming through Woodland Park.

We saw those 2 - mamma and baby - on the way home. We sat on the side of the road and just watched the moose!
