The Loch Hike….

We had told the kids that we would go hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park on Monday and they were all really excited. With all things COVID-19 right now one has to get a timed entry pass to get into the national park which we figured wouldn’t be an issue because we were able to…

Summertime Fun….

We’ve had some fun end of June/beginning of July activities. The kids have all been busy with the library summer reading program and each week requesting 2 books from the library that we can pick up in the parking lot. Coppelia picked a cook book the last time we went and is so proud of…

Virtual Korea Camp

The last few years Father’s Day weekend has found us up in the mountains at Korean Heritage Camp. It is one of our favorite weekends of the year and we all learn so much. However with all things COVID this year Heritage Camps had to make the difficult decision to not hold camp in person….

More Fishing And S’mores….

We did a lot of fishing when we were up at my Aunt’s cabin, we fished Grizzly Creek a few different times and on Thursday went to both Dumont Lake and Muddy Pass Lake. I can’t say we had a whole lot of luck, although my dad, Clint, and Leighton all caught fish….and I caught…

Hiking Rabbit Ears……

While we were up at my Aunt’s cabin we hiked up Rabbit Ears. The day was beautiful and we could not have asked for a better day. We hiked through fields of wildflowers that were abloom and gorgeous. Part way up we came to a large snow field which meant we all took turns sliding…

Last week we got the chance to get away and go up to my Aunt’s cabin outside of Walden for a few days. Shortly after we arrived the kids were ready with their fishing poles and after eating a quick lunch we headed down the road to Grizzly Creek and spent the afternoon fishing. Just…

Paxton is 5!

Paxton turned 5 on Wednesday! We spread his celebration out over a couple of days because he just started gymnastics on Wednesday evenings so we had his birthday dinner on Tuesday night. He has been telling me for the past month that for his birthday that he wanted a big tall cake with frosting all…

New Flower Bed….

Last week we decided to put in a new flower bed. There had been some big green bushes which were beginning to look not so great and mostly just attracted flies all summer long. So we decided to take them out. Monday morning the kids at I attacked the bushes with a bunch of clippers…

Broken Hearts…..

We sat down the other night and had a very frank but age appropriate discussion with the kids about the riots and racial tensions going on. They voiced their understanding as best as they could at their respected ages but then after we tucked them into bed that night Caedmon came out and said he…

Bolder Boulder Virtual 2020

Our Bolder Boulder looked different this year with the quarantine. The race directors cancelled the race held every year on Memorial Day (it has been going for over 40 years) but offered a virtual race. We took it a step farther and set up a neighborhood race. We had a course around the neighborhood and…
