Brown bear sighting on a hike - best photo we got, unfortunately!! Our favorite moose spotting site at Jackson Lodge. No moose to be seen this day... But there was a sweet puppy the boys played with. Desi found an interesting place to hang out... And it's on to Yellowstone! Continue reading

Digby learned how to ride his bike on Father's Day. He has spent the whole summer whipping around the cul-de-sac and going on bike rides with the family. It's been amazing to have an independent rider among us - it has made summer even more fun! Continue reading

We did a nice hike Father's Day weekend at Betasso Preserve. It was a gorgeous, well-maintained trail, perfect for little boys... Everyone was well provisioned... Snacks taste better when you carry them yourself. The hike is a little over 3 miles. I had the carrier but Desi did most of... Continue reading

Digby's class put on a little play for the end of the year. Digby memorized his line and delivered it perfectly, but was so nervous he just looked kind of mad... We all loved Digby's teacher. She was creative and involved and really worked toward each kid's strengths and individualized... Continue reading

At least for Digby! Daddy took Digby to the Speedway for a Monster Truck race. While it's really not daddy's idea of a good time... ...this is what being a daddy is all about. Happy Father's day!!! Continue reading

We finally got some snow around here a couple of weeks ago. Digby and his friend / neighbor Jacob came over with some sleds and they had a lot of fun with a pile of snow and a slick driveway... Is there anything more perfect than being six years old... Continue reading

Daddy took the boys to a train show in Denver yesterday. There was train story time... ...huge tracks... ...and a double decker trolley track that was Digby's favorite part. And what event would be complete without a shot of Desi's belly?? Continue reading

Our new tent is huge and wonderful. It can divide into 2 rooms! It's one of those huge grown up car camping tents, and we love it! Thank heavens we had it - it was cool and rainy a lot of the time, and we spent a lot of time... Continue reading

The antibiotics kicked in quick. It's good to be established at the Leadville Urgent Care sooner rather than later, I feel. Digby was back to rock throwing strength in no time! We camped at the west end of the lake - it had this crazy otherworldly landscape. We found a... Continue reading

Yeah - the people at the site next to us also had a similar story - only they were snowshoeing with their sick kid! Apparently it's a common mean parent thing to do!!

Last 4th of July we went camping with the boys at Turquoise Lake, outside of Leadville. We did a great hike to Timberline Lake. Pretty challenging for Digby - 5 miles with some steep parts. Look at those awesome sunglasses!! I never saw them again. I miss them so much...... Continue reading

I guess kids who ask for carrots for breakfast and get excited about cottage cheese for dessert deserve to start the day with a fudgy frosting beater every once in awhile! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY!! Continue reading

We started our morning in Eldorado Canyon early... Snow still melting on the pines... The sun barely peeking over the canyon walls. It was a gorgeous, crisp morning. But the best part of the hike, way up on the canyon wall... The hike winds up the canyon to a train... Continue reading

Digby pulled a small black rock out of his pocket after dinner tonight. "Travis gave this to me. He told me it was a magic rock, but I'm not sure it is." It's magic? we asked him. How is it magic? "If you make a wish with it, it's supposed... Continue reading
