One of our favorite and least expensive family past times is exploring mountains, scenery and small towns (which usually means lots of day trips)! We like to pack up snacks and a picnic meal and head out for some exploration. Yesterday we decided to go on a road trip (a whole day [...]
Remember this garden post where I told you about my “squash”. Ha! Well, it really is a pumpkin after all. Just look at it!
This was taken on 8/17. Please disregard the crying 3 year old who DID NOT want to take a picture with the pumpkin!
And this was [...]
I LOVE this week’s You Capture – the theme is nature! Nature is one of my favorite things to photograph (in addition to my kids and old/dilapidated wooden structures such as barns).
We went to Helen Hunt Falls this past weekend for a short bit and it was beautiful. We’ve had a lot of rain and [...]
I’m so glad our weather has turned nice, we were really itching to do some hiking and exploring and today was the perfect day. Michael took the afternoon off, so it was a great time for us to get out. We drove out to Cheyenne Canyon and set off on one of the trails.

Wow! It’s Monday again!
We had an absolutely wonderful weekend that I must tell you about!
Michael took the day off on Friday and we had a family day spent in Denver. We went to the Aquarium (tickets purchased at a discount on base!), had a picnic lunch in the park and went to the [...]
This is our winter wonderland!!
This was taken while driving on a dirt road up in the mountains after a fresh snow! Beautiful.
This photo was taken at MIDNIGHT and look how happy he is….. He had a cold and couldn’t sleep because he was coughing terribly and when we brought him downstairs, [...]
Who writes a blog about baking? Me. Why? Oh, you’ll see…
I’m not one of those moms that loves to bake just for fun. However, I do occasionally like to bake some cupcakes or brownies or cookies – you know, things for dessert. I don’t usually bake from scratch, I simply break open a box, crack [...]
