Backpacking 2019

Last week we went on a 4 day 3 night backpacking trip and I think it was one of the highlights of our summer. In true fashion for our backpacking trips we had some rain, but all in all we had a great time. We went backpacking down in south/central Colorado and backpacked in a…

Twin Silo Park

Last week we went to explore a park that I had heard about. It was even better than I had imagined. I think everyone had a blast including Clint and I. The name of the park is Twin Silo Park and it is located in Fort Collins. There are two huge silos on site and…

Easy Summer 2019

So we decided this year to make the summer easy and laid back. Basically the plan is that there is no plan. We have cut almost all activities out and are just playing and laying low. Leighton still has his gymnastics because he is on the team, and Coppelia has speech therapy and she and…

Early Summer Blooms

So no new secrete here, I love flowers. And now that it finally stopped snowing, some of my flowers are starting to bloom. I have a number of Iris that have opened over the past week as well as my peony. They all just make the world a little brighter.

Paxton’s 1st Birthday Package

As I packed up this package I was really hoping that this would be the only birthday that we have to miss and be ½ a world apart. Praying that next year his little feet are running through the hallways and he’s spilling cake crumbs all over the floor. Since it is a birthday package…

Garden 2016

So this is only a few weeks late because life just happens like that sometimes and phone calls come and paperwork happens and things just get crazy. All that said, we did put our garden in a few weeks ago. And I’ll confess now…I did not start a single plant from seed indoors. I always…

Garden

So it’s been a few too many weeks since I last updated about the garden. Oops, summer does that to me. Weeks go by, we are busy and having fun and playing and I forget to blog. A lot. But alas, my garden has not forgotten to grow. Except for the broccoli that were eaten…
