Weekend Coyote Ridge Hike

On Sunday on our way home from church we decided to hike Coyote Ridge. We pass the trail ridge each week and Clint and I have biked/ran it but the kids have never been on the trail. We planned ahead and packed hiking clothes and lunch. The kids were excited and ate their lunches as…

Bobcat Ridge Hike…

We decided to not really take a week off for Spring Break this year. We decided we’d rather finish a week earlier in May and have more summer free time. However we decided to make the week that the littles didn’t have preschool and the bigs didn’t have their Wednesday enrichment a little lighter and…

An Atypical Thanksgiving 2018

Our thanksgiving was anything but “typical” this past week. My parents were out of town and my brother and his new wife had other commitments so when we started looking and planning we all sat down and talked about what we really wanted to do. No one wanted turkey and we decided we’d rather spend…

Hiking On The Yurt Trip….

It kind of amazes me how the kids woke up super exicted to go hiking every morning at the yurt and then we got oh all of about 10 feet on a hike and suddenly everyone was tired/hungry/etc etc…. Not quite sure how that works. Actually though we had a great time hiking, even if…

Yurt Camping 2018

We got away from everything last week and went yurt camping. I decided I really like yurts. It’s kind of like a tent only in the morning when its cold there is a wood stove that you can start (or in my case Clint can climb out of his warm sleeping bag and start while…

Family Hike….

So this is a little out of order but it’s because we spent last weekend at Korea Heritage Adoption camp and many of my photos from that are on my camera which I haven’t downloaded yet, so as a result I’m jumping ahead to our after camp hike and the photos I have of that…

Happy 13th Hike

So I’m a little behind on my blog but on June 11th Clint and I celebrated 13 years of marriage! In true form we decided on going on a 10 mile hike because that’s what we do. The kids stayed the night before with my parents and we were out the door before 6AM to…

Hiking…Party of 7

We went on our first family hike with all 7 of us last week. The weather was not that typical of August in Colorado, but I didn’t mind the cooler air and even the rain that we got along the way. We didn’t know if we would only make it 100 feet from the car…

Chasm Running….

Last Friday Clint and I went for a good trail run/altitude training/time without kiddos/refreshing moment up to Chasm Lake at the base of Longs Peak. It was all in one. And much needed. It was nearly 3000 feet in altitude gain in the 4.3 miles up, but we had a gorgeous day and got an…

Final Days As A Family Of 5…

This past Saturday we made it a family day. It’s the last time it will just be just the 5 of us.  We decided to spend the afternoon hiking one of the trails close to our house. We have hiked this one a number of times, it is a little over 3 miles round trip…
