Memorial Day Weekend

What a weekend! I hope everyone enjoyed theirs as much as we did. I think the summer is finally here as it was a scorcher, especially Saturday. Speaking of Saturday, we spent most of the day recovering from our trip last week, laundry, cleaning etc. but in the late afternoon we were off to a […] Read more…

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

Now that we have made it home and Austin is sound asleep in his own crib, I can write about the rest of our trip! It was a long travel day for all of us and we’re glad to be home. Somehow Austin and I were upgraded to first class for our long flight from […] Read more…

Last day in Colorado

Yesterday was our last day in Colorado. We fly home today (I think Austin wants to go home)! It has been a great trip, but I think we are all ready to go home and get back to our normal routine.  The majority of our day yesterday was spent at the Chyenne Mountain Zoo. We […] Read more…

A Relaxing Day

Aaron had to work yesterday, so Austin and I were on our own. We had scheduled a late check out at one hotel and an early check-in at the next hotel.  I was hoping to get Austin to nap a little more since he hasn’t been sleeping very well since we’ve been out here. It […] Read more…

Garden of the Gods and Pikes Peak

Yesterday was another busy day but full of adventure. Austin slept on his normal sleep schedule, but that is normal in Ohio which means he was up at 5am (7am in Ohio). So or day started bright and early!  We headed into Colorado Springs (about an hour drive from Denver). Our first destination was Garden […] Read more…

Mini Family Vaca

Yesterday was a long day as we traveled to Denver for our mini family vacation! Aaron has some work to do out here and since I have family out here Austin and I tagged along.  Saturday night was the last show of “Once Upon a Mattress” and I stayed after for a short time to […] Read more…

Memories

You may have noticed that I didn’t do a blog post yesterday. This is because the middle of the week was spent with my family remembering my grandfather. I decided to take a day off from posting and let everything simmer a bit. I wasn’t sure what to do with this post. Do I go on as […] Read more…

Workout Motivation

I was on a roll with my exercise routine for a while, but then Austin became sick and share his germs with me. This laid us up for about 3 weeks, and my workouts were the first thing to go. Once I get out of a routine, it is that much harder to start back […] Read more…

Weekend Fun

This weekend was so busy that this post is coming a day late so I had more time to write. I had intentions of taking more pictures this weekend, but that didn’t happen either. It was the 3rd weekend of Once Upon a Mattress at Aurora Community Theater that I am playing horn in, so […] Read more…

Sweet Potato Bites

I somehow ended up with a ridiculous amount of sweet potatoes in my kitchen and needed to do something find some recipes to use them up before they go bad. I found this sweet potato bites recipe that I thought would be a good snack for Austin. I followed the recipe but didn’t read the blog that […] Read more…
