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…

Happy 6th Birthday Edric!

After a month full of adoption camp fundraiser, marathon, Easter, and ballet we finished the month celebrating Edric turning 6 on Tuesday. We are having his little friend birthday party this weekend but we still celebrated him for his actual birthday. Edric loves hot dogs and so we had his birthday dinner a few days…

Easter 2019

We did Easter over a couple of days this year. I’m finally getting smart and realizing that trying to do Easter baskets and egg find on Sunday morning while also trying to get everyone ready for church just doesn’t work. At all. So we did Easter baskets and eggs on Saturday morning which made Sunday…

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…

Paxton’s Family Day

And finally Monday was Paxton’s 2 year Family Day. He has been such a blessing to our family and such a little sweetie. He may be small (he finally hit 28 pounds….with clothes on) but he has never let his smallness stop him, he totally acts and thinks he’s just as big as the big…

Happy 7th Birthday Caedmon!

We’ve had a busy few days at our house between a birthday, state gymnastics meet, and a family day….but we’ll start with Caedmon’s birthday. Caedmon turned 7 on Saturday. Crazy to think that he is already 7. That boy was born with an extra dose of self confidence and it has only grown since that…

Planting Flowers….

So no lie here, I love spring. I love the grass turning green and flowers starting to poke through the ground and bloom. Tulips, Daffodils and Hyacinths just make me smile. I planted a few tulips and hyacinths last year right off our front porch and I noticed a couple of the hyacinths poking through…

Snow Storm 2019…

Last Wednesday we had a blizzard. We actually didn’t get a whole ton of snow but instead got a TON of wind at 75+ mph for hours on end. Both preschool and homeschool enrichment got cancelled that day and so we had a low key easy day at home with everyone. I was thankful that…

Meeting My Birth Family….

Sunday evening I found myself in a place just a few short days before I hadn’t even imagined possible, sitting on my aunt’s couch next to my brother in a room of my aunts and uncle. If someone had told me Wednesday when I opened my email from my DNA results that that was going…

Colorado Springs Weekend….

This past weekend we got to get away and go to Colorado Springs. Leighton had a gymnastics meet at the Olympic Training Center and so we made a weekend out of it. His meet was actually Friday evening. The meet was really neat, it was held in the basketball gym but the boys got to…
