  • Giving Thanks


    In a very round-about, long-story kinda way, we ended up going to Arizona for Thanksgiving. It is very rare for us to travel on Thanksgiving and honestly, it wasn’t numero uno on my to-do-list. I’ve been working like a rented mule and driving 10 hours twice over 4 days (as opposed to lying around in […]

  • Camping at Dillon


    We headed out last weekend for what we think is probably our last camping trip of the year (maybe one more? we’ll see!). Right up until that morning, we didn’t know if we were going because the weather looked grim. We had a family back out and others were talking about it. Plus two families […]

  • Weekend in Vail


    We went to Vail for Labor Day Weekend. Owing to moving and camping and LIFE, we had not been there since ski season, and since I actually like it better in the summer, I was happy when my sister proposed we go. After a long fight with traffic, we got there and crashed. The next […]

  • South Dakota Here We Come


    Well I had no idea that when we tentatively planned a trip to South Dakota for 4th of July weekend that my kids would be SO into it. We didn’t know when we’d be closing on the house, so we booked a cheap campsite with the intention of backing out (and only incurring a $20 […]

  • Scenes from the Beach


    It’s been a bit of a whirlwind since we got back from our Florida/New Olreans vacation. Fo sho. But that’s not entirely why I haven’t written about it. A tragedy occurred while we were in Florida with our Nashville family – Matt’s Dad, stepmom, sister, niece and brother. My sister-in-law’s ex-husband and father of their […]

  • Camping at Leadville Salida


    We had a call a few weeks ago – our third annual group camping trip to Turquoise Lake near Leadville was off! The campground couldn’t be open thanks to some crazy late season snow storms we’d had. Boo! My co-conspirator and I scrambled to come up with an alternative, but group campsites that allow trailers […]

  • Back to the Dunes


    We spent the weekend at what is undoubtedly my favorite places in Colorado – The Great Sand Dunes. I never get over how cool it is to find a GIANT pile of sand in the middle of the Rockies, brought together by a perfect storm of mountain placement and winds. And I think I love […]

    We took the opportunity spring break presented to take a nice little trip to Vail with some family friends. We had 3 families of four plus my cousin who came along to provide child-minding services and my sister who came along because she’s a bit crazy. We went up late on Thursday and skied Friday […]

  • What a Weekend

    2014-01-11 10.16.58

    What a weekend. Oy. Friday Tabby went home from school with her bestie to start celebrating her bestie’s birthday early. She was gone until late in the evening, so we had a quiet evening at home with Ben – made cookies, prepped for skiing. Just before we needed to pick Tabby up, we ran a […]
