Thankful Thursday!

On this Thursday I have a lot to be thankful for! I am getting to make a very last minute unexpected trip back to Durango/Farmington to visit with friends and family!!! As you can tell I am very excited.

There are two family weddings going on over the next two weekends. My cousins and my little sisters. So I am going to be able to make it a sorta vacation. The only downside is that Ry will not be able to come with me:(

He gets to to go on a business trip to California for a few days. We are going to miss him, but we are so looking forward to seeing everyone there.
So today I am thankful for spontaneous opportunities:)

Memorial Day Weekend

I think we packed more fun and adventure into Memorial Day weekend than we have the entire rest of the summer!
One of the reasons for that is that our wonderful awesome amazing friends the Beaches were in town. They came for a soccer tournament, and we tagged along for all the fun.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I will spare you my chattering. Here goes!

Here we are at the soccer tournament watching Chris play. It was super fun to hang out with friends since we really have none here yet.
The Colorado Rapids playing the Seattle Sounders. Colorado won 1-0. It was lots of fun!Sean at his very first professional sports game. He had a ball (Pun intended)
After our friends left we spent Memorial Day at Arvada Reservoir fishing with the kids. It was lots of fun!
I got this sweet pic of Sean. He was picking up pebbles and putting them in his little net. I love love love having a little boy!Last but certainly not least is my very handsome hubby teaching the girls to cast. Even though he is very ornery at times, I think I'll keep him.
All in all it was a great weekend that now holds lots of wonderful memories. There will be more summer adventures to follow. It is not that we haven't been doing stuff. I have just not been faithful about updating. I promise more pics and posts will follow. :)

Summertime Happenings!

I can not believe how fast this summer is going by. I have a ton to share on all of our adventures thus far.
I will break it down a little at a time so as not to overwhelm you with pictures.
Ever since we moved up here to Denver in March, we have been exploring our new surroundings and trying to experience the things that are new to us.
We have taken in some of the city life experiences. However, I think you may notice that a lot of our adventures take us out of the hustle and bustle and back to nature and the mountains.
Back in May we decided to take a drive into the mountains and go hiking around Evergreen Reservoir. We were not disappointed. Check out this view!

It was a gorgeous day, although a little windy.We had a fabulous time together, and plan to have many more:)More to come as this was just the beginning of our summertime adventures!
