Touch A Truck Weekend & Tadd's Birthday!

It was Touch A Truck this weekend and to Jackson that is better than Disney World and then it was also Tadd's birthday so we headed up for brunch in Denver and then the aquarium.

And look at these crazy Iris's - I didn't know that they would come up flower first.

It's beautiful out & almost the weekend!!!

It is beautiful out today and just about the weekend.  Our weeks always seem so long, school feels long, I work a lot...Joe works a lot.  But the weekend sure is amazing!

Look I have little sprouts of the bulbs we planted at the end of the season last year - which is making me EVEN more excited because I haven't even seen these one yet since they are brand new this year and like a true novice I didn't write down what all I it's all a surprise. :-)

And it is Dr. Seuss' celebration day at school for the girls.  Tyler asked if she could dress up. :-)

Bars on the windows....

Joe has been working on the new suite for his business expansion and declared the other night (perhaps after a cocktail or two) that he needed help the next day so Jackson, Austin and Tyler went in to "help" him out.  I took little Miss Chewy to Costco to replace my 15th vacuum, not sure if I am just hard of those things or what but I have to return them all the time.

Also, we just received this confirmation in email.  Austin has put in for a choice acceptance to The School in the Woods.  Which is a FABULOUS outdoor 4th Grade venue here in Black Forest, they are a public school in our school district but they only take 70 kids a year and literally learn everything submersed in nature....they eat lunch outside every day and everything.  She would do so fantastic there - it's a lottery system to decide who gets in so there is definitely no guarantee, but we will wait and see.

We have received your signed Academy District 20 school choice application for Austin DiFabio.  This completes all of the steps required for your application.  We will contact you if there are any questions.  You will be notified via email by April 1st of the choice school assignment for your student.

Valentine's Day!

Any holiday means that the littles and I get to go to school for the parties...which as you can imagine is a REALLY big deal around here.

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!!!!

Picture Dump's been forever but I promise we are still here.  And while this won't be a long post at least I can dump some pictures :-)  Apparently in no particular order either as I go through them.

My cousin Jenn and I - look at how the years have changed us, but we still laugh so stinkin' hard together. We had an impromptu trip to Glenwood Springs to see all three of my cousins - it was the first time we had all been together in forever and it just so happened to be on my late Grandmother's birthday...which made me cry, but that's because I am sap.

And of course Aunt Deb and us.

I think the waitress was getting after Joe about something so I was growling at him. LOL

Not every day that I don't get to be in the back row...that's a tall group of people there.

Then the very next weekend the Leake's came out to visit us.  Hard to believe it has been so many years that we had never even met their daughters.

We went up to Estes Park for the weekend which was amazing except for the 50MPH wind.  We ended up spending a great deal of time in the hotel hiding.

Logan sure liked driving Jackson around, and obviously he didn't mind it either.

We went to the zoo when we got back to the just so happened to be the best zoo day ever.  All of the animals were super active and the place was empty.

My friend Scooter and his family came out so we all got together and went bowling...again talk about how time flies.

Look at that big girl facing forward in her seat. In Colorado you are supposed to be two before you turn, but she's so tall that I couldn't wait anymore.

Aunt J sent us a King Cake to celebrate the start of carnival from New Orleans.

And last but not least this was at the Indianapolis airport and I forgot to ever post it.
